Richard O. Jacobson Postsecondary Scholarship Program
Richard O. Jacobson Foundation

ABOUT

Since 2013, CFY has facilitated over $750,000 in scholarships through the Richard O. Jacobson (ROJ) Postsecondary Scholarship Program, named for Mr. Jacobson who was instrumental in the growth of CFY and unwavering in his support of area youth. Through this program, CFY matches community sponsors to aspiring Pinellas County High School seniors seeking to further their education through local and national colleges, universities, trade, and vocational schools.

 

Building on CFY’s mission of elevating youth through access to impactful programming, the ROJ Postsecondary Scholarship Program extends our impact to many of the same young people who started their development in CFY sponsored programs, now on to their next great life chapter.

Breakfast at the Ballpark by CFY Pinellas

Each spring, Richard O. Jacobson Postsecondary Scholarship recipients and their sponsors are invited for a meet and greet and award ceremony at the home of Phillies Spring Training and the Clearwater Threshers, BayCare Ballpark. This event offers an opportunity to deepen student/sponsor relationships, discuss plans for the future, and connect community changemakers to the next generation of leaders.

Special thank you to our hosts and sponsors for this unique opportunity to elevate the impact of this legacy program.
