About Us


Our Team

Our team is committed to keeping the heart of Cora Sue Smith alive for generations to come by offering renewable, four-year scholarships.  From The Heart members work side-by-side with students, members of the community and educators, to go beyond traditional expectations to support the academic and personal growth of our students. Contact us below for more information!


Our History

Since 1986, at the end of every primary school year, Cora Sue would donate money to graduating high school seniors.  Seeing a need for energetic, nonprofit work for prospective students, we formed our organization to provide a sensible solution for graduates and currently enrolled students to complete their education with little to no debt . We are growing and hoping to increase our outreach yearly thanks to the helping hands to the amazing people in our communities!


Our Mission

To make the dream of a post-secondary education a reality for prospective students who are descendants of an individual who lost their battle to heart disease and/or diabetes.  Our goal is to ensure that no deserving scholar within our community is deprived of higher education. Qualified students must also meet academic requirements and show a financial need.   

Help Our Cause

Considering making a gift or bequest? Your support and contributions to our 501 (c)(3) organization will enable us to meet our goals of funding the education of prospective students each academic year. Your generous donations will fund our mission to serve the community for generations to come.
