Simple Gifts Fund/Anonymous Trust

Program Description

We provide scholarships to students in rural Sampson County to attend private liberal arts college outside NC. We are currently funding the College Advising Corp in Sampson county through Duke University. We also fund college access programs like Juntos that will have a summer program for Latinx students at NCSU. We are funding the ENC-STEM (in North Hampton & Edgecombe counties) at NCSSM this summer since the state legislature did not pass a budget.
