“My mentee and I have been speaking weekly. It has been an extreme pleasure to mentor her. We have discussed continuing the mentorship outside of the Ammon Initiative.  We are in agreement that it would be beneficial for both of us, as her short-term goals have been achieved and we want to ensure that she achieves her long-term goals and has the support she needs to achieve them.  It would be my honor to walk parallel with her through her journey.” 
– Sherika, Professional Mentor 

Become an Education Partner

Give the invaluable gift of education. Invest in Recovery. 

The Matching Scholarship provides organizations, institutions or corporations the opportunity to match their dollars (most often in a one-to-one ratio) to the Ammon Foundation scholarship dollars.  For example, educational institutions enter agreements with our Foundation to match scholarships for one or more of their students attending their institution. 

The Sponsored Scholarship provides organizations, institutions or corporations with the opportunity to sponsor annual scholarships to be awarded to a deserving person in recovery who is studying or planning to study in a field that is directly related to the business purpose of the corporation or organization. These Scholarships are not limited to four-year college programs but provide corporations and organizations with the chance to sponsor students pursuing courses of education in vocational/trade school, two-year community college or programs directly in line with the skills that are in highest demand in their industry.

The Legacy Scholarship is created by individuals and/or families in order to honor the life of a loved one. These gifts can be made on a one-time basis or as an annual gift.
