To help individual students, who are making a difference in the world, raise funds for their education.
WE BELIEVE WE ARE THE ONLY EDUCATIONAL PLATFORM WHERE 100% OF EVERY DOLLAR FUNDED GOES DIRECTLY TO THE STUDENT. THERE ARE NO FEES ON OUR END.
The inspiration came from Herb Lotman, a self-made businessman whose lifetime was dedicated to helping others and giving back to communities across the country. In 2013, we created the ‘Herb it Forward’ Scholarship (HIF) in his memory. HIF supports the education of future leaders who will continue to pay it forward to their communities and to our country. NOW the HIF Scholarship is handing the baton to the I Help Educate community – aka ALL OF YOU – to keep the ‘pay it forward’ chain going.
Our History: I HELP EDUCATE
- The Herb it Forward Scholarship was founded in 2013.
- Hundreds of students across the country applied, and only the TOP were selected to go through a highly competitive interview process.
- By the end of 2016, 46 students received over $133,000.00 in scholarship funds.
BUT WE’RE NOT STOPPING THERE!
2016 was a big year for us… we also launched I Help Educate platform, and this is why-
- Herb it Forward recipients can only receive the scholarship ONCE, and for many, that means a hefty education tab is STILL on the table.
- SO we decided to upload their profiles HERE to give them each an opportunity to raise funds.
- Now, the I HELP EDUCATE platform puts the “it takes a village” concept into action by turning to YOU to help these exceptional individuals pay for their college education.
- AND we send 100% of all raised funds DIRECTLY to the educational institution, so you know where your funding is sent! We do not take any funded dollars away from the students. I Help Educate covers all costs!
