Review for Jeannette Rankin Women's Scholarship Fund (JRF), Athens, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Having served on various nonprofit boards in the arts and in education for over twenty-five years, JRF has become a valued extension of service in those areas. I was drawn to JRF because of its focus on providing financial support for adult women who are investing in higher education as a life changing experience. Having these women in the college classroom, most often serving as exemplars to other students, drew me to volunteer with JRF. The opportunity to serve on the board of directors has revealed the depth of commitment of the leadership and staff in fulfilling the mission JRF. This is the way to “give back” to my profession.

Review for Jeannette Rankin Women's Scholarship Fund (JRF), Athens, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My husband and I first learned about this organization when he attended a workshop for non-profits seven years ago. We are both retired university professors and throughout our careers have worked with older students who needed financial assistance to continue their educational programs. These students because of their life experiences and maturity have so much to offer and we have enjoyed working with them in our respective disciplines. We are also familiar with reading applications and making decisions about which applicants might be most likely to achieve their goals. So working with the Foundation is a wonderful way for us to use our skills to assist women over 35 in reaching their goals. It continues to be a most rewarding experience for us.
