The Terry Foundation

Give Back

Since 1987, more than 5,000 Scholars have entered the Terry Scholarship Programs. Their lives and the lives of their families have forever been changed because of the opportunity to receive an education and graduate without the burden of excessive debt.

Mr. and Mrs. Terry requested that Scholars give back to the Foundation through their time and resources to ensure a strong Terry family. Terry Scholar Alumni give back to the Foundation in a number of ways.
