About The Gilbert Scholarship, Inc.
The Gilbert Scholarship, Inc. is named in honor of Dick and Mary Gilbert (pictured, July 2013), who spent their lives helping hundreds of youth in foster care. The scholarship is a 501c3 tax exempt, non-profit, and helps students from foster care obtain a college degree. Most students have spent years in the system and have aged out. They have no outside support, no place to go for Thanksgiving or Christmas, and no mom or dad to text when life gets hard. Some even enter college without a car or a home.

Your granola purchases and generous donations are helping to create brighter futures for these students.
