The Education for Life Legacy Society is an esteemed group of individuals with the shared purpose of ensuring SSF's vision of More than a Scholarship... an Education for Life  for future generations of deserving students.

The Education for Life Legacy Society honors those who have provided a lasting legacy for tomorrow’s generations of students by providing an endowed gift or by including Southern Scholarship Foundation (SSF) in their planned gifts. In just a few short years, this Society has grown to over fifty alumni, friends, and community leaders who have continued to support the organization through generous lasting gifts - allowing us to sustain our mission of helping deserving young people who lack financial resources, but demonstrate excellent academic merit and good character, attend institutions of higher education. Decades ago, individual generosity helped create this great organization. Today, your investments help sustain and expand our role as a leader in higher education scholarship programs.

Since planned and endowed gifts are the ultimate expression of confidence in Southern Scholarship Foundation, it seemed fitting to name the Society after our Education for Life  philosophy that is such an important part of our rent-free housing program. Much like the lasting impact this philosophy has on SSF residents, gifts given by members of the Education for Life Legacy Society will make a lasting impact on Southern Scholarship Foundation.
