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, 2022, and June 30, 2023.

Investors in Hope



In addition to investments of employee time and product donations, including vital Meraki technology, Cisco’s Regional Solutions Grant is supporting the rollout of the Boys Hope Girls Hope My Road platform and online curriculum that prepares scholars for life, college, and careers.

Edward Jones

Edward Jones funding and volunteers were instrumental in creating and launching the Legacy Leader Development Summit, a two-day initiative held at our headquarters in St. Louis for Boys Hope Girls Hope collegians and recent alumni to network, meet industry leaders, improve their job search skills and marketing their skills and experience in their resumes, and hone the edge of their career paths.

Emerson Charitable Trust

A stalwart of philanthropy in our region and beyond, Emerson continued its many years of strengthening opportunities for youth in need at Boys Hope Girls Hope with a generous grant supporting our vision to scale our impact and reach more young people. The Boys Hope Girls Hope Network board and the board of our affiliate in St. Louis have benefitted for many years from Emerson team members' dedicated leadership and service.

Intel Corporation

A generous Intel RISE Technology Initiative Grant is supporting work to make the Boys Hope Girls Hope My Road online curriculum accessible to scholars at our affiliates in Guatemala (Esperanza Juvenil) and Mexico (Ser y Crecer) while also providing needed technology for new classrooms being built at Esperanza Juvenil as part of their expansion to serve more scholars. Intel volunteers will be installing the technology in Guatemala and will continue hosting Intel Future Skills programs for scholars at affiliates across the Boys Hope Girls Hope Network.

Johnson Scholarship Foundation

We’re thrilled to partner with this amazing organization dedicated to helping disadvantaged young people overcome individual barriers to education, successfully transition into the workplace, and contribute to their communities. The foundation’s generous three-year challenge grant provides direct scholarship support for Boys Hope Girls Hope collegians and inspires others to support this critical aspect of our mission.

William Randolph Hearst Foundation

Dedicated to partnering with nonprofits to ensure that people of all backgrounds in the United States can build healthy, productive, satisfying lives, the William Randolph Hearst Foundation continued its journey with us with a grant to fund Boys Hope Girls Hope’s post-secondary support programming, our My Road platform and online curriculum to prepare scholars for life, college, and careers, and critical elements that are laying the groundwork to scale our reach.

Micron Foundation

Established in 2023 through Micron’s AAPI Justice and Advocacy Fund, the Boys Hope Girls Hope Micron Foundation Scholars program exists to create greater opportunities for scholars of Asian American and Pacific Islander heritage to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and math. Each Micron Scholar receives a scholarship toward their education.

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 investment has been instrumental to our evolution and positioned us for growth. This includes strengthening our core programming across the Network through “ALL In (Act. Learn. Lead)” experiential learning that involves social justice and heritage exploration, and focusing on data-driven performance through developing our Performance Management Tool has become the established system for evaluation and improvement across the Boys Hope Girls Hope Network.

World Wide Technology

Across our Network, WWT employees serve on our boards and share their expertise through speaking engagements, web design, networking, technology consulting, and connections to internships. The Boys Hope Girls Hope World Wide Technology Scholars program, now in its seventh year, supports our collegians pursuing careers in STEM, business, and the arts with scholarships, internships, mentoring, and access to industry conferences.
