Providing educational opportunities to Memphis students since 1998

In 1998, Memphis businessman Bob Solmson founded MOST on the belief that all children deserve equal access to receive the education that best fits their needs—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 $23 million from individuals, corporations, and foundations, MOST has served more than 3,500 children since its inception. In addition to local donations, MOST receives a portion of matching funds from the Children's Scholarship Fund, a New York organization that supports thousands of scholarships across the U.S.
