Go-Long Scholarship

Description: 

The Go-Long mantra is to give of oneself, to live life fully and to never give up. The Go-Long team formed in 2002 when a group of football-loving friends decided to give back to the Kansas City community. Go-Long seeks to enrich the lives of young people who aspired to attend college. Scholarship funds are raised through a yard-work and neighborhood-beautification business, in which 100 percent of all earnings are dedicated to the Go-Long Scholarship Fund. Since 2009, Go-Long has awarded $34,000 in scholarships. In addition, Go-Long volunteers provide scholarship recipients with neighborhood-beautification service projects, which raise funds to fuel the next class of Go-Long scholars. Scholarship amounts vary and are non-renewable.
