John and Carrie Morgridge founded the Student Support Foundation (SSF) in 2003 to inspire the next generation of great American philanthropists. Today, that idea has empowered thousands of students from dozens of schools across the country to give back to their own communities.
The model for an SSF Chapter is simple: colleges and high schools admitted to the program are granted $4,000 by the Morgridge Family Foundation to invest directly into their school’s community. The projects and needs those funds are directed toward are decided upon by each Chapter’s students. A sponsor — a professor or teacher from each school — must be associated with each club. Additionally, SSF Chapters are required to fundraise at least $250 each year, and submit an annual report to the Morgridge Family Foundation describing the impact of their chapter.
