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!

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!

G.N. Smith elementary school was very pleased to have project impact to assist us with cleaning, as well as decorating the teacher's classrooms. 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.

Project Impact is a great organization that helps communities, schools, and churches. I was introduced to Project Impact last year by my cousin Timikia Morris! This year they blessed my church family with book-bags for returning students! What an awesome idea to come up with to help make our students educational journey better! Thanks Project Impact MS for EVERYTHING !

It was a great pleasure working with this organization. After obtaining the supplies from you all we were able to provide them to children at an event our organization hosted (GEO) Generational Empowerment Organization. The members of Project Impact carried themselves in a professional manner and were able to assist us in every way possible. We look forward to working with you all soon!

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.

Too often people and organizations turn a blind eye to the needs of the community around them. This is not the case with Project Impact. It is refreshing to see a group that lives out their mission. Many thanks to Project Impact for making a difference in the lives of countless numbers across our State.
