The Clint Foundation was established in the 1990s to provide financial support to students pursuing higher education. Its unique approach is based on one strongly held premise: The Foundation believes that individuals will benefit more from what they earn through their own efforts than from something provided as a gift. As such, students receiving support from the Foundation must work for a portion of their educational expenses. Those funds will then be matched by funds from the Foundation and its participating colleges.
Students who participate in this program must earn some of the money required for their education, maintain passing grades, and make a moral commitment to give back to others in the future. The method used to fulfill this commitment is up to the beneficiary; it could be in the form of tutoring, mentoring, coaching, or providing financial support.
From a modest start in 1995 with Flagler College in St. Augustine, Florida, the Clint Foundation has grown to include 15 colleges from all over the United States. In all cases, each college matches Clint funds three-to-one. Over 200 working students are now receiving support from Clint-sponsored grants. Many of the colleges in the program have been added because of recommendations from contributors who believe in the goals of the Foundation.
