THE WHAT AND THE WHY….

 

GK Legacy Foundation was created in honor of our father (“GK”), who we sadly lost to cancer in 2018.

 

George was the epitome of perseverance and determination, and it is our mission to honor him in a way that represents those attributes.  "Keep your chin up, kid" was his favorite thing to say whenever we faced adversity (he said it so often we teased him for it as we grew older).   Now, those words are sacred to us, and we are using them to inspire others.

 

In 2019, we created the Keep Your Chin Up Scholarship, offering tuition assistance to adults 25 and older living in Arizona.  Additionally, in 2020, we added our Healthcare Heroes Scholarship, specifically created for Arizona residents (25+), who are working towards a certification or degree in the healthcare field.

 

We know college can be challenging for anyone, especially for adults returning to school while juggling jobs, family, and/or financial stress.  We also know there are very few scholarships available for this under-served demographic.  We want to help fill that gap and encourage these individuals to persevere past all obstacles… just like our dad would do.

Keep your chin up,
