We believe that we can change the face of philanthropy,
one scholarship at a time.
Today, obtaining an education is critical. Unfortunately the cost of college continues to skyrocket and student debt is at an all time high. Your investment in the education of a young person can yield lifelong rewards.
There are many benefits of starting a scholarship fund. As a philanthropist, you:
Invest in the lives of deserving students
Give back to communities that matter to you
Encourage students to go to college
Relieve the financial burden of pursuing higher education
Promote academic success and community engagement
Inspire community members to give back and pay it forward
There are also significant tax benefits for charitable giving! All donations to charitable organizations are tax-deductible, offering a great incentive for donors to give.
Why should you start your own
scholarship or grant-making fund?
How can we help you launch your legacy?
Let's be honest!
Starting a scholarship or grant-making fund is a huge task but with our services and support we'll help you develop your very own fully functional legal scholarship foundation.
Did you know?
Did you know that most (not us!) community foundations require a minimum of $10,000-$25,000 to start a scholarship or grant-making fund, often posing a huge barrier for young people to give back in a sustainable and systematic manner.
We make giving back easily accessible by removing financial barriers often associated with traditional “philanthropy”

What others are saying...
I was really nervous about the amount of time and money it would take to start my scholarship, but working with Philanthropy LLC I found the process quick and affordable. Chalis was so patient and accommodating and her passion was evident through every interaction. It made me even more excited to launch the Ozzie and Me Scholarship. She was there every step of the way, always available to answer questions and provide support. I truly couldn't imagine a better experience!
