Educating Emily Fund

The Educating Emily Fund was created in 2017 to help young people grow – physically, morally, and spiritually. The Educating Emily Fund is not a scholarship. Instead, it was created to provide holistic support for the educational, spiritual, mental, and physical wellbeing of young people. 

This fund helps with things like private school tuition, after-school programs, summer educational programs, physiological testing, tutoring, uniforms, mentor programs, and other needs. We work with the youth, parents/guardians, school staff, teachers, doctors, counselors, tutors, mentors, and others to encourage partnership and collaboration with the idea of communities working together: “it takes a village.”

Over the past four years, the Educating Emily Fund has grown to help five young ladies and an entire high school varsity football team. We are so excited about all the ways this fund is expanding to help so many others including our current efforts to work with college students during our fall internship programs. 

We are delighted to share more about all the great things we are doing and how you can join us in our missions to bring meaning and purpose to a world bereft of both and helping young people grow – physically, morally, and spiritually!

Discover how the Educating Emily Fund began by reading Emily’s Story.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. 

We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
