Give Something Back Foundation (GSBF) was established through the generosity of Bob Carr, former resident of Lockport, IL. Bob wanted to give back to the Lockport area community by helping disadvantaged, academically oriented children who were committed to excellence, complete a college degree.
Bob received a merit scholarship at a critical time in his academic career. This financial assistance made it possible for him to finish his college education. Bob realizes how his college education has helped him advance and prosper in today's society and feels very strongly about giving the same opportunity to other young, striving individuals who do not have the financial resources to attend the university of their choice. Bob hopes that scholarship recipients will give back to their community in the same manner as they, through the foundation, are giving to others.
The core activities of the Give Something Back Foundation are:
Providing under-privileged students an opportunity to get an education. Providing students with the proper framework so they can be prepared for college and be successful when they attend. Providing all students a mentor who will assist them as they progress through high school. Providing assistance to students in assessing career and college choices.
GSBF board members envision the core activities of the foundation continuing into the future and becoming more efficient by forging strategic partnerships. The foundation plans to expand by joining forces with other individuals (or organizations) who want to assist and provide opportunities for academically oriented students. – less–ZoomInfo
