The Clint Foundation was established in the early 1990s
to provide financial support to students pursuing higher education.
Its unique approach to this support is based on one strongly held premise.
The Foundation believes that individuals will benefit more from what
they earn with their own efforts than from what they are provided as
gifts. As such, students receiving support from the Foundation must
work for a portion of their educational expenses. Those funds will
then be matched by funds from the Foundation and its participating
Students who participate in this program must earn
some of the money required for their education, maintain passing grades
and make a moral commitment to give back to others in the future. The
method they use to fulfill this commitment is up to the individual.
It could be in the form of tutoring, mentoring, coaching or providing
financial support. The magnitude of this commitment is also up to the
individual but the Foundation does hope that all will pursue a lifetime
of help to others in return for the help they received.
From a modest
start in 1995 with Flagler College in St. Augustine, Florida, the Clint
Foundation has grown to include 13 colleges from the four corners of
the United States. In most cases, these colleges are matching Clint
funds three to one for this program. Over 200 working students are now
receiving support from the Clint sponsored grants.
Many of the colleges in the program have been added
as a result of recommendations from contributors who believe in the
goals of the Foundation. As people learn about these goals, more and
more are joining in to help us achieve them. If you would like to learn
more about our program and explore how you might help us in our efforts,
please contact us by email, phone or mail. The Clint Foundation welcomes
inquiries from contributors, colleges or interested students.
