The mission of the Philbeck Foundation is to improve the lives of children in Monroe County, Michigan. Because we are living in unprecedented times, we want to step outside of our typical grant award cycle and offer a new scholarship opportunity to a Monroe County graduate from the Class of 2020. The t-shirt fundraiser will support this effort while also supporting the Philbeck Foundation's continued support of children in Monroe County.
Since 2017, the Philbeck Foundation has awarded more than $73,000 in grants to Monroe County organizations including, the Department of Health and Human Services Foster Care Services, Bedford Junior High School, Monroe County Opportunity Program, Oaks Village, Arborwood Elementary School, New Beginnings Mercy House, Monroe High School AIM and Monroe Instrumental Music Boosters. Over 3100 children and families in our community have already benefited from the programs the Foundation has helped with charitable support.
The Philbeck Foundation pledges that 50% of proceeds from the t-shirt fundraiser will be awarded to a graduating senior (or multiple seniors, depending on funds raised) from a Monroe County high school through an essay contest to be announced at the completion of the t-shirt fundraiser. Please help us support our Class of 2020 with your purchase of a t-shirt today!
