Testimonials

“The Chetolah Mel Nathan School family thanks you from the depths of our hearts for the many contributions and visits. Your true beauty is borne through your actions and aspirations and that is the kindness you give to others.”

Mervis Blackwood, former Chetolah Primary Principal

Sandhurst ECDC Board of Management

“I would like to extend gratitude to the Gore Family Foundation for their continued support throughout the school year, and even more so through this pandemic. I hope all that we have done will make them proud as they continue to do good work in all the basic schools.”

Martha DeSouza, Sandy Park Basic School Principal

“The Scholarship Fund changed my life in more ways than I could possibly think of. It granted me the opportunity to step out of my comfort zone and become a more well-rounded individual – going after my goals, graduating from college, and much more. The Scholarship Fund made me not only a better tennis player, but also a better person.”

Sicquena Sinclair, Bachelor of Arts, Sports Management, Shorter University

“In the middle of my tennis and high school career, I didn’t know what the outcome of my life would be because I had no plans on how to achieve any goals. The moment that I was introduced to The Scholarship Fund and the plan they had for me, was the moment that my life changed. The Scholarship Fund helped me to set and achieve my goals, and held me to a higher standard than I had previously been accustomed; it has made things possible that I could have never imagined.”

Christopher Lawson, Incarnate Ward University

“You have not only granted me the opportunity to gain work experience but you have also allowed me to recognize the great potential I possess along with attributes that I didn’t even know existed within me. You care so much about me and my future and it’s easy for me to see that. Thank you for the opportunity to develop myself not only personally but also professionally. If it wasn’t for you, I probably wouldn’t have experienced and learned half of what I now know. And it’s from these experiences that I am now able to re-evaluate my goals and visions for the future. I feel so lucky to have worked in such an impeccable environment at the Foundation and to have had the opportunity to consider myself a member of The Phillip & Christine Gore Family Foundation team.”
