Our Supporters

Investing in young people is our hope for the future.

With support from the following partners, we are nurturing and guiding motivated young people to become well-educated, career-ready people for others.

Boys Hope Girls Hope thanks the following donors for their generous contributions between July 1, 2021 and June 30, 2022. 

Investors in Hope

Centene Corporation

Centene strengthened core programming, training, service learning, evaluation, and collegian support provided by Boys Hope Girls Hope Network Headquarters and Boys Hope Girls Hope of St. Louis, which enabled us to help more young people become agents of change in their communities.

Edward Jones

A remarkable supporter of young people and their career goals across our Network, Boys Hope Girls Hope collegians were thrilled to return to the Edward Jones campus during Collegiate Prep 2022 for one of our favorite traditions – Networking Night, where they met professionals from many industries and fields!

Emerson Charitable Trust

A stalwart of philanthropy in our region and beyond, Emerson continued its many years of strengthening opportunities for our youth to move to and through post-secondary education successfully, including Collegiate Prep.

Intel Corporation

A generous Intel RISE Technology Initiative Grant is supporting new technology, enhancements to our My Road curriculum, and a critical partnership with Arizona State University. Intel volunteers also led a Future Skills program at Collegiate Prep 2022 that focuses on building communication and creative-thinking skills.

John Templeton Foundation

The John Templeton Foundation is funding a three-year project focused on deepened curiosity, purpose, and perseverance. “Accelerating Youth Character Development by Leveraging the Power of Youth Peer Groups” will energize a dynamic network-wide collaboration focused on honing the inherent strengths of our young people to set and achieve their own goals within larger age group cohorts.

Valhalla Foundation

A fantastic partner, the Valhalla Foundation supported ALL In (Act.Learn.Lead), our signature service-learning program through which scholars across affiliates and partner schools identify, plan, execute, and reflect upon social justice and other projects that address root-cause issues facing their communities.

World Wide Technology

Across our Network, WWT employees serve on our boards and share expertise through speaking, networking, technology consulting, and connections to internships. We are delighted about the World Wide Technology Scholars program, which supports our collegians pursuing careers in STEM, business, and the arts with scholarships, internships, mentoring, and access to industry conferences.
