Gold Star Scholars and their founders have created a trustworthy nonprofit that deserves your support.
I have a special place in my heart for good things that are military related.. This military related nonprofit is a good thing.
The scoop on Gold Star Scholars
I am bringing you this information from an insider’s point of view. I currently serve as a board member for this nonprofit, so I know for a fact that all of the following information is true.
As always my opinions and reviews are my own, as I state in my disclosure.
Gold Star Scholars provides continuing educational opportunities to military families affected by the loss of their parent or significant other whether it be from combat, training, or non-military related tragedies.Gold Star Scholars
As you can see, the GSS mission statement is a little broad. I recently asked the founders what all they were intending with the creation of this non profit, and their response was something that left me speechless.
I was told that they wanted to help the families of fallen Rangers with their education. BUT there is a catch– they don’t want to cut a check and disappear.
They want to continue to support those families throughout their educational adventure by helping with securing scholarships, providing career counseling, assisting with networking for internships, and many other pathways.
They want to make lifelong connections with the families they help.
Currently, the founders and board members of Gold Star Scholars are not paid. Each member works tirelessly to develop and grow GSS because they TRULY believe in their mission. Outside of GSS they have full-time jobs and families and other community involvements, but they’re eager to fill the void in the Ranger community.
The founders aren’t back alley guys that will do whatever it takes for money. They aren’t secretly running their non-profit through a church in order to avoid taxes.
This nonprofit was founded with standards that it continues to uphold.
