Jalissa Marie Nesmith Scholarship – Cards for a Cause Fundraiser

Many of you are aware that my family has a Scholarship Fund in my daughter’s name, The Jalissa Marie Nesmith Scholarship Fund. For the last 7 years we have given  scholarships to Schenectady High School Seniors who are graduating and continuing on to college. Our scholarship is geared towards the purchasing of their books.

In an effort to give away two scholarships for the 2016—2017 graduating class, we are having a Cards for a Cause Fundraiser through Usborne Books and More. For every box of cards sold, the scholarship fund will receive $13. Each box is $30. This averages out to $1 per card. There are 4 different boxes to choose from. I have a sample box available and would like you to take a look. Cards for many different occasions are at your fingertips and you won’t be disappointed with the quality. With your support we can aid a student in their academic journey, bring attention for the need to stop bullying in our schools as well as open up discussions regarding suicide prevention.

My family appreciates your support in our efforts to make the 2016-2017 Jalissa Marie Nesmith Scholarship year a success.
Thank you,
Lisa M. Gilbert
