Sponsorship Opportunities

The Swinney Foundation’s vision is to build strong families and even stronger communities by helping single parents. The US has the highest rates of single parents in the world. One in four children will live some portion of their childhood in a single parent household. Regardless of how someone end up being a single parent, we are here to help by providing scholarships.

We have partnered with Georgia Piedmont Technical College to provide these scholarships.  We need sponsorship so they we can expand our capacity to provide scholarships nationwide. In addition to scholarships, we also provide book and food stipends. The greatest determinant if a student graduates from college is not grades, it is finances.  Even after receiving financial aid, many students are forced to withdraw or eventually fail classes because they are unable to afford the expensive textbooks. The College Board estimates that the average student in this country spends around $1,200 a year on books and supplies.  A single book can cost as much as $200. After spending $1,200 on books these students need to think about their health and nutrition, but with what money? Some students have had to choose between their textbook or their next meal. This constant stressor for college students is called food insecurity. Food insecurity is not knowing where your next meal will come from. Food insecurity is hunger. So many students struggle with hunger that colleges have started to set up food banks. The funding for this sponsorship will also be helping these college, that we are partnering with, fund their food banks and provide food stipends to their students. The issue of food insecurity has worsened since the economic downturn due to the global pandemic. We have relied on small dollar donations from friends and self-funding to provide the scholarships, stipends.  We need corporate sponsorship to be able to help more single parents, which in turn strengthens that family and the entire community

The Swinney Foundation is a non-profit organization. It was started in 2019 by Dr. Sharmon Monagan, after she lost both her parents to cancer. The foundation was created in honor of Sherman and Beatrice Swinney. They both worked for Mead School and Office Products in Atlanta, Georgia their entire adult lives. They both believed in people acquiring work skills that would allow people to move into the workforce quickly and be able to provide for themselves and their families.

Our vision is to build strong families and even stronger communities by helping single parents. The US has the highest rates of single parents in the world. One in four children will live some portion of their childhood in a single parent household. Being a parent is challenging and life-changing even in the best of circumstances. Parenting impacts your time, education, career choices and opportunities, and finances, and this is even more so for single parents. Regardless of how someone became a single parent, The Swinney Foundation is here to help. We are partnering with local colleges to provide scholarships and stipends to students to get the work-ready skills needed to quickly move into the workforce and provide a living for themselves and their families.
