Pay It Forward Grant: St. Johns Episcopal Church, Mount Rainier
Henry donates his time and talent as a mentor to The Forward Foundation’s Black American Engineering Scholarship Award. This program combines scholarship with mentorship to increase racial equity in the field of engineering by funding students with scholarships and providing them with professional mentors to assist them in their challenging university programs.
The Pay It Forward Mentorship Grant was created to show gratitude for individuals like Mr. Williams who donate their time as mentors. At the close of the school year, each mentor is awarded a $2,500 grant from the Forward Foundation and is provided with the opportunity to direct the grant in their name to a public charity or educational institution of their choice.
St. John’s Episcopal Church is a place where people from different nations worship and are inspired to be the best they can be. There members represent a variety of backgrounds and traditions including members that have come to America from West Africa, South America, and the Caribbean. Members participate in men’s, women’s, youth, and senior groups.
The Pay It Forward Grant is funded by The Forward Foundation, which partners with compassionate individuals to support like-minded missions for human equality and domestic empowerment.
