“We were very privileged to find such a wonderful partner and beneficiary with ANSWER Scholarship. ANSWER’s mission to help women fulfill their dreams of higher education will not only have an immediate impact on our business community but will further strengthen Charlotte’s future generations. This commitment from ANSWER is a true inspiration and we are so blessed to be associated with such a wonderful organization.”
~ Joe Keener, President, Business Leaders of Charlotte
“ANSWER Scholarship is a beautiful fit with Carolina Women’s Club philanthropic mission, supporting local women and children in need. ANSWER provides scholarships to mothers of school age children and builds an opportunity for stronger family financial security. Their children learn the power of education by seeing their moms in school.”
~ Kacie Arandas, President, Carolina Women’s Club
"We are inspired by the vision of the ANSWER fund and its belief that a student’s success in life includes a focus on family and willingness to work hard to build her own future."
~ Tom Lawrence, Executive Director of The Leon Levine Foundation
“Women’s education is one of the highest priorities of the North Mecklenburg Women’s Club. We financially support the ANSWER Scholarship because ANSWER does an outstanding job of identifying women in greatest need who will benefit from a college education. ANSWER recipients have a strong track record of success following graduation, and we’re eager to bring as many women as possible into the program. Some of our Club members have also gotten personally involved as mentors in ANSWER’s Mentors for Mom support program. It’s thrilling to see our donation and volunteer hours have such an obvious positive impact each year.”
~ Denise Carter, President of the North Mecklenburg Woman’s Club
“We consider it a privilege to support the good works of ANSWER Scholarship! The relational aspect of pairing moms with mentors offers a unique accountability. This accountability and resulting successes appeal to our tithing committee.”
~ Jane E. Balbirnie, CFO, St. Matthew Catholic Church
“The ANSWER Scholarship is a unique opportunity for women rearing school-age children to secure not only substantial financial support but also enjoy and benefit from a special mentoring relationship to support them in their educational journey. We always encourage eligible students to apply for this life-changing scholarship.“
~ Janet Deal Daniel, Director, Office of Adult Students, University of North Carolina at Charlotte
"I’m interested in helping children get started on the right path. The mother runs the family. If we can help fund a mother’s education, the mom will provide that example to her child of why education is important. Giving was a no-brainer for me. The ANSWER Scholarship works for what I want. ANSWER is my answer."
~ Jim Brinson, retired CPA, who has named ANSWER Scholarship as a beneficiary in his estate plan
“I agree with ANSWER‘s philosophy that if you educate a parent, you educate a child. Education builds self-confidence, self-discipline and self-worth. It builds everyone a better future. That, really, is the mission of the ANSWER Scholarship.”
~ Patricia Mason Spencer
“I admire the fact that Susan Andersen saw a need and, on her own, decided to take steps to meet that need by setting up ANSWER. It proves that one person can indeed make a difference. It’s my joy to be able to contribute to this important work. I also like the idea of women helping women, and that’s what ANSWER is doing.”
