The beginning of a new year is a time of reflection for some. An opportunity to look back on the previous year and recount what we’re grateful for, what was learned, and prepare for the year ahead.
For many of us, the concept of being “grateful” for education may seem out of the ordinary. But studies have shown the benefits that education can contribute to having a better life.
With this understanding, it’s easier to see the value that higher education can bring to the life of a child. Unfortunately, not every student has had an easy path to go to college and the pandemic has only made things even harder. This is why the dedication of organizations like the Folds of Honor Foundation is so important.
Founded by Major Dan Rooney following his second tour of duty in Iraq, CORT has worked with Folds of Honor since 2013 to provide educational scholarships to dependents and spouses of military servicemen and women killed or disabled while serving our great nation.
As their corporate philanthropic partner, CORT has remained dedicated to the organization’s mission over the last 9 years and has donated $250,000 since the start of our partnership. To date, this has amounted to 50 scholarships awarded.
