Mission: The mission of Assists is to help provide young people access to better lives. We accomplish this by identifying areas of need and working with other community-based institutions to provide creative and lasting solutions.
Results: $10,000 in scholarships
$20,000 in community grants
Programs: The organization provides grants to educational foundations. The grants provide four-year scholarships that will cover tuition at a higher education program. The organization also assists elementary school students by creating programs to teach students about the importance of giving back to their communities. The organization also helps people improve the quality of their lives by promoting or providing assistance to local communities, including: a) educational programs, libraries and other community enrichment programs, b) athletic fields, community recreational facilities and other community athletic programs, and c) such other programs as the foundation determines to be necessary to help fulfill its mission.
Bill Self truly cares about every aspect of wellness in children. His Assists Foundation has made a huge difference for the children of Lawrence, Kansas and the Lawrence Public Library. We can't thank Coach Self and his family enough for their generous support of kids and reading!
