‘Beat the Odds’ Scholarship & Luncheon
Every year, Stand for Children Leadership Center awards several $10,000 college scholarships at our annual Beat the Odds Scholarship Awards & Fundraising Luncheon in Portland, and at a reception in Eugene.
Excellent teachers and an unshakable inner drive help these students defy the odds and land on the path to success. But Stand’s end goal is to even the odds so that all children, regardless of their personal struggles, can graduate from high school prepared for, and with access to, college. We thank the donors who support our work to boldly advocate for solutions.
As the 2014 keynote speaker State Treasurer Ted Wheeler put it:
“We need to work together, and we need to raise our voices together, because change requires momentum.”
Mark your calendar for the 10th annual Beat the Odds scholarship and fundraising luncheon, Tuesday, November 15, 2016 from 11:30 am to 1 pm at the Oregon Zoo; and get excited by browsing through the stories of nearly ten years worth of winners.
