Leveraging Philanthropy and Collaboration

The Lodestar Foundation seeks to expand the overall capacity of the social sector by promoting philanthropy, volunteering, public service, nonprofit collaboration and other business practices.

Lodestar Single Parent Scholarship

In 2016, Lodestar initiated the Lodestar Single Parent Scholarship to facilitate the ability of single parents with limited financial resources to attend an Arizona public institution of higher learning on a full-time basis (taking at least 27 credits per calendar year) for the purpose of completing an education that will provide them with a readily employable profession.  The fund was established exclusively for the purpose of supporting single-parent living expenses (such as rent and child care) while attending school, and may not be used to support any academic expenses. In its inaugural year, three recipients are beneficiaries of Lodestar scholarships after completing a competitive application process managed by the Arizona Community Foundation.
