Providing children's educational opportunities since 1998
In 1998, Memphis businessman Bob Solmson founded MOST on the belief that all children deserve an equal chance at a great education—regardless of their ZIP codes or financial circumstances. To fulfill that mission, MOST offers need-based scholarships to qualifying families in Shelby County who wish to send their children to private schools.
Thanks to contributions of more than $20 million from individuals, corporations, and foundations, MOST has served nearly 3,400 children since its inception. In addition to local donations, MOST receives matching funds from the Children's Scholarship Fund, a New York organization that supports thousands of scholarships across the U.S.
