When I decided to create the scholarship, I was very concerned that it would be a difficult process. I was assigned a dedicated advisor and I am now wondering why I didn’t do this sooner!

Project Impact has been a great partner for my nonprofit organization. They have supported and attended my back to school events. They have donated numerous backpacks to my organization. Timika has been a great person to work with on behalf of Project Impact. I truly credit her and Project Impact for making my back to school events successful.

Project Impact MS works tirelessly to provide educational support and resources to Mississippi’s youth. I am filled with great joy whenever I’m able to help them help by donating via their various fundraising efforts throughout the year as well as by simply having them set up as my AmazonSmile charity recipient. Thank you, Project Impact MS for all you do for the children and communities of MS, and I look forward to witnessing your growth, success and impact in the future.

My story is unexpected…As I was about to position Project Impact MS to an acquaintance, she began to tell me she would not be able to support my cause. I was a little taken aback, as I had not even started my conversation of the “why” for PIMS. She then explains how she will be giving to a nonprofit she saw on Facebook, that truly cares about the community, makes it easy to give back to students, and seems to truly be genuine. When I asked her which nonprofit, she stated it was Project Impact MS! I then thoroughly enjoyed her enthusiasm recruiting me to give, and her excitement about her role as ambassador!
Project Impact MS truly embodies the nonprofit of the present and the future!

Since I lost my grandma, I had always wanted to find a way to honor her while helping others. Had the idea to start a scholarship in her name, but didn’t know how to build one. Thanks to Project Impact MS, the process was simple, and they were there through every step. They worked hard to ensure students receive help to go to college. Through Project Impact MS, our family was able to award a $1,000 scholarship to a graduating senior. This organization truly cares about the community, and it really shows in the lives they touch across the state.

Project Impact MS has been one of the most beneficial initiatives in MS for the last few years. The combination of successful impact now, powerful impact planned for the future, and an impact focused on truly moving students and communities forward; is setting a precedent in the state of MS. I look forward to their continued efforts, and personally helping them to share their vision, and insight across the state. I am truly encouraged by the positive changes they have already created.

This organization has been a very vital part of my community. Project Impact works hard to create programs not only for the education of children in the MS Delta but also the health and well being of those families. I’ve never experienced a more loving and dedicated group of people before being introduced to Project Impact. This organization goes over and beyond for our Mississippi’s schools and families.

As an upcoming nursing student, I was very worried about the financial aspects of my education. I came across Project Impact from one of my high school teacher’s Facebook posts. I applied for two different scholarships, and I was blessed to receive both! Thanks to the people of Project Impact, my second semester of nursing school is paid for!

Because of your help, our scholars are now ready for their first day of instruction. We are also excited about the backpack donation that we received from Project Impact. This non profit organization is amazing.

It was a great pleasure working with this organization.

Working with Project Impact MS was a great experience! My classmates and I decided we wanted a way to give back to our school and community and Project Impact MS was perfect avenue! We informed them of what we wanted to do and we were guided through the process of setting up a scholarship fund in honor of our class! The process is quick, easy, and most of all rewarding!

As a former educator, I’ve seen firsthand how our children are sometimes left in the shadows because they are “just from Mississippi.” Project Impact has shown the students, parents, educators, and the entire state of Mississippi, that gaining an education is important AND achievable! With an annual backpack drive, scholarships, and many more opportunities throughout the year, students are afforded the opportunity to not only get assistance with a secondary education but to gain the confidence in knowing that Project Impact and its donors care about making that happen. Being able to make donations to such a noble cause has truly been an honor for me.
