If you want to provide a contribution that goes directly to a student in need, you can support them in the following ways:

Adopt-a-Student: This program allows you to adopt a NEED recipient by providing him/her with a $1,000 annual grant for four years. In return, you will be kept abreast of the student’s progress as you help them work toward their educational goals.

Book Scholarships: To contribute to the cost of a student’s books for an academic semester or a year.

HBCU Tour Scholarship: To contribute towards the cost of a student’s participation in the 10th Annual NEED HBCU Tour this Spring of 2016.

3. Scholarships/Endowments

NEED manages special scholarships for outside organizations including corporations, colleges and universities, civic and social groups and individuals. If you would like to speak with us about establishing a scholarship, please call 412-566-2760.

Starting a named endowed fund in the NEED endowment is the ideal way to ensure that your contribution supports the organization for years to come. If you are interested in establishing an endowment, please call us at 412-566-2760.
