You can make a life-changing difference when you make a contribution toward a Moraine Valley Foundation scholarship. It’s this generosity that ensures the resources are available for students to continue with their education; students who might otherwise have had to leave school because of unanticipated financial challenges.





A Gift That Keeps on Giving

Ever so often an opportunity of a lifetime comes along.

Thanks to some very caring people, Kathy Kelly is pursuing her dream of becoming a history teacher. "My husband knew I wasn't happy in my job, that I really wanted to be a teacher. He told me to quit and go back to school. It wasn't something we could afford, but he said he would make it work," Kathy said.

Kathy was ecstatic to be named a recipient of the Moraine Valley Foundation's Alumni Scholarship. "Getting that letter saying I got the scholarship, well it meant that somebody cared about me. If I could, I would hug each and every person who contributes to those scholarships," she said. "I was on the other side of the fence. I saw how limited you are when you don't have a degree and how far you can go when you do."
