About ANSWER Scholarship Endowment

The idea for the ANSWER Scholarship Endowment began years ago. Susan Andersen put herself through college and was grateful to receive a four-year partial scholarship from a Charlotte organization. She vowed to give back one day to the community that believed in her.

From that desire, ANSWER was born.

Many others have joined what Susan began. ANSWER has funded 70 scholarships so far thanks to gifts from individuals, organizations and houses of worship. We’ve helped remarkable mothers in the Charlotte region earn college degrees and become strong and self-supporting. Their children are inspired to follow their moms’ example and work harder in school.

ANSWER is a non-profit fund housed at Foundation For The Carolinas.  We invite you to learn more about our work here. If you like what you see, and if you’ve experienced the power of education in your own life, make a tax-deductible donation to ANSWER today.  You can help more women achieve their dream of a college education.
