“Is There a Minimum Donation Required to Give?”

Last week, Family Scholar House had the privilege of sharing about our organization at the Oldham County Schools Arts Center. While there, we were able to provide information about FSH and collect donations.

A young girl, probably around 12 years old, approached the table and asked what we do. We told her about FSH. In reply, she asked, “Is there was a minimum donation required to give?”

So often, we forget how much of a difference a seemingly small contribution can make, but when we come together, a small donation can make a huge difference in the lives of many. At Family Scholar House, we are grateful for each and every donation, whether it be a single pair of shoes, a box of pencils, a piece of furniture, or an hour of your time.

We thank YOU for your ongoing support of Family Scholar House. Each dollar raised helps us reach our goal of ending the cycle of poverty through education. It allows us to provide resources and opportunities for our incredibly deserving participants.

In the case of our young friend, she gave two dollars. Two dollars of selfless giving in order to help others. Two dollars covers the cost of an after school snack for one of our kids. Two dollars covers the cost of a pack of notecards in order to help one of our scholars prepare for finals. Even two dollars can make an impact, but what made the biggest impact on us, is the generous giving of a young girl who just wanted to help.
