Make a donation to Rogers Scholars and support our youth on Kentucky Gives Day.

The Center for Rural Development is asking residents in Southern and Eastern Kentucky to support the region’s youth and make an online donation to the Rogers Scholars program on April 9 during Kentucky Gives Day.

Kentucky Gives Day is a 24-hour online fundraising event bringing charities and Kentuckians together for a powerful day of action. The goal is to raise as much money as possible — giving every Kentuckian the opportunity to support causes they care about and giving charitable nonprofits the opportunity to share their story — all through a single online giving site and in just 24 hours.

“Your donation, as part of the Kentucky Gives Day, will go directly to support the Rogers Scholars program,” said youth programs coordinator Delaney Stephens. “No contribution is too small. Together, with your help, we can ensure that our youth develop the skills they need to be successful leaders and entrepreneurs in Southern and Eastern Kentucky.”

Rogers Scholars—The Center’s flagship youth program—provides leadership and college scholarship opportunities to help upcoming high school juniors in Southern and Eastern Kentucky develop the skills they need to seize their potential as the region’s next generation of business leaders and entrepreneurs.

Since 1998, 936 high school students have graduated from Rogers Scholars, and potential scholarships valued at more than $7.2 million have been offered to graduates by 17 participating colleges and universities.
