Our mission is to empower, serve, and mentor motherless daughters. The foundation offers mentorship and scholarship opportunities for motherless girls. Our vision is that every motherless daughter would have an advocate in her life to set goals, teach life and leadership skills, and reaffirm her ability to reach her God-given potential.
In developing relationships with motherless daughters, mentors can make immediate and long-term differences in these girls' lives by encouraging and empowering them to become all that God has created them to be.
We begin mentoring girls at age 14 and will continue through college. In our second year as a 501(c)(3), we are currently mentoring 6 college sophomores, and 12 college freshman. We have given 18 partial scholarships and are serving the greater Dallas and Detroit areas.
"It would truly be an honor to be awarded this scholarship as it would help my transition into a college be a lot less stressful on not only me but my family, and would make me feel like I am making my Mom proud. Thank you so much for reading my story and for allowing girls like myself to have a chance to achieve our dreams."
"When I saw this scholarship and program I thought it was the coolest thing ever. There are a lot of motherless daughters in this world, and we need to come together and help each other. One day, I plan to give back to programs like this scholarship fund. Entering adulthood without a mother has brought more challenges to my life, but I will not let that stop me."
"The BDG Remembrance Scholarship can not only provide me with needed scholarship money, but they can also open the door to major opportunities that will grant me the knowledge and understanding of international businesses through study abroad programs while taking on real-world opportunities. Furthermore, I would be provided with a personal mentor to guide me on the right path not just in school, but also throughout my life; to have that security of knowing there is somebody that is rooting for my success and filling up that hole in my abandoned heart is truly more worthy than any amount of money."
