The Annexstad Family Foundation was established in 2000 with the mission of providing college scholarships to deserving young people who have overcome challenging circumstances in their young lives. The scholarship programs focus on helping these students continue on paths to their goals with little to no college debt.
In 2012, after supporting over 175 students over the course of 12 years, the Annexstad FamilyFoundation raised the bar significantly in their effort to position higher education as a catalyst for positive change. AFF launched the Leaders for Tomorrow national scholarship program as a forthright investment in future generations. In the years ahead the program will represent the primary focus of the Foundation’s mission. In this latter effort the Annexstad Family Foundation has partnered with over 69 of our nation’s most prestigious colleges and universities to help exceptionally promising students from extraordinarily challenging backgrounds lay the foundation for careers of remarkable achievement and contribution toAmerica.
To date, over 1,200 Annexstad scholars have received college scholarships. And most notably, the Annexstad Family Foundation proudly points to a nearly 92 percent graduation rate among scholarship recipients, an extraordinary achievement when one considers that the over whelming majority of Annexstad scholars are first generation college students. Today, Annexstad graduates are successfully pursuing careers in several fields, including medicine, business, science, education, engineering, and law.
