Checking the numbers
MOST fulfills its mission of providing scholarships and information about Memphis-area schools through the generosity of MOST founder and board chair Robert M. Solmson, Children’s Scholarship Fund, and our growing number of other friends: individuals, groups, foundations, and corporations. We work hard to keep our administrative costs low so that as much of our funding as possible can go directly to scholarships. In fact, the support of our board members and the proceeds from our annual golf tournament underwrite all administrative costs so all other unrestricted gifts can be used for scholarships.
Making the MOST of your gifts!
