Description

The mission of the Daniel Trust Foundation is to support students from low-income communities with their educational and career needs, and to hoNor teachers, who are making a difference in the lives of these students and communities in which they teach.

We accomplish our mission through our scholarship program: the Daniel Trust Foundation Scholarship, our teacher recognition program: the Kathy Silver Award, and our mentoring program for high school juniors and seniors: the Daniel Trust Foundation Mentoring Program.

Our impact to date: We've pledged over $30,000 in scholarship monies to our fifteen 2014 and 2015 Daniel Trust Scholars, who are attending prestigious universities such as Harvard University, Yale University, and UC Berkeley, and have awarded over $4,500 in cash prizes to nine teachers and educators from Connecticut, Georgia and New York.

Our 10 minute documentary: "The Seeds of Trust" highlights and details the impact we are making in our scholars' lives. Visit our official website: http://www.DanielTrustFoundation.org to watch this inspiring video.
