A 501 (c)(3) non-profit charitable organization, Get Hits 4 Education Foundation has been instrumental in helping hundreds of young people secure the funding necessary for training and developing their skills. Previously, these funds have come solely from a grassroots effort. Now, Get Hits 4 Education Foundation is launching a capital campaign to increase our resources in order to assist more young people.
More than 1000 youth have received academic and athletic college scholarships upon completion of the Get Hits 4 Education Foundation program. Further, every student has completed the program with some type of scholarship opportunity.
According to the NCAA, in 2008 the average athletic scholarship was slightly over $10,000 per year. If we multiply the NCAA average athletic scholarship by 1000 student-athletes, and then multiply that number by 4 years of college, we calculate that we have helped families secure roughly $40,000,000 in scholarships.
