When & Where
Seattle University and Material Good Studio
The Fostering Scholars Program was established at Seattle University in 2006 to support youth who emancipate from foster care.
The program provides both scholarship assistance and additional supports critical to retention and academic success. Students in the program receive financial, academic, and personal support towards the completion of an undergraduate degree at Seattle University.
Fostering Scholars is made possible through generous contributions by private donors, foundations and Seattle U.
Material Good, a Seattle-based business took a simple idea and turned it into a way to give back to their community. Enter the Little Shirley. Each of these vases is hand-crafted by skilled local artists. Originally created to honor the memory of founder Lauren Burman's late grandmother Shirley Larson. Material Good uses their trademark Little Shirley to give back.
