EMPOWERING YOUNG ADULTS
The Hourglass Foundation is guided by the belief that great change can come from helping young adults. Our passion is to strengthen young adults by creating hope and opportunity through scholarships and philanthropic giving.
In connection with our Mission of “Empowering young adults to achieve their dreams in the face of financial adversity,” our Vision is to support trade school / community college education through scholarship opportunities.
There is more than one path to a successful career and life. Trade Schools and Community College can offer:
Low to no education debt
Increased salary potential
Potential employer partnerships
Great Work Takes Great Partners
We would not be able to support our trade school / community scholarship initiative without great partners. If you or your organization would like to partner with The Hourglass Foundation to achieve our mission or if you prefer to make a tax-deductible donation, please consider giving to our fund through The Columbus Foundation called “Axles for Hope.” The Columbus Foundation is one of the top ten community foundations in the United States that assists individuals and corporations with effective philanthropy. If you have questions, please contact us.
I wanted to personally reach out and thank you for your generous donation to my education. It has been an honor and a privilege to have been considered and I am excited about my future in the automotive field. Attending college for a formal education has given me a sense of pride and fulfillment that fills me daily with the drive and desire to become a better version of myself. I am filled with a hope that I may one day be in a position to help someone as you have helped me. I will be forever grateful for the contribution of the More Than One Path and will continue to strive for excellence in all that I do. Thank you again for your invaluable assistance.
… I would like to thank you for awarding me The Hourglass Foundation Scholarship for the academic year 2021-2022.
This scholarship will help me achieve my academic goal of completing and excelling in the Automotive Technology Systems program…
It is only through generous donors such as yourself that help make future goals happen. I sincerely appreciate your investment in my education, and I will value the opportunity you have given me.
“This scholarship means a new start and a fresh beginning to me, it’s helping put me through college.
I can’t express how grateful I am about it”.
“This scholarship will help me complete my training to become an ASE certified Master Technician. This scholarship will help me help others. I also want to teach…teenagers for free and teach them new skills to help break the cycle of poverty. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your generosity”.

“By receiving this scholarship, I will have much less stress and worry about how I am going to pay for everything. I really am trying hard to balance everything – like my own car repairs, car insurance, school expenses, etc. My parents help as much as they can but most of their extra income goes toward helping pay for my medical expenses and also my brother’s who was just diagnosed in January with severe heart and kidney issues. Thank you for your support”.
