What is SEE?

We’re a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization helping anyone — no large fortune required — start a scholarship in honor of a loved one. Traditionally, creating a named scholarship requires an up-front investment of $30,000. Who can do that? No fundraising minimum, no complex paperwork, no hassle; just start a scholarship and make a difference.

Who can start a SEE Scholarship?

Anyone! That’s the beauty of it. Anyone can start a SEE Scholarship in honor of a loved one. You can get started fundraising in minutes and we’ll be here throughout the process to help.

Who selects SEE Scholarship recipients?

When you create a SEE Scholarship, you designate a recipient school. Once your SEE Scholarship is finished fundraising, we will transfer it to the designated school as an unrestricted gift along with your provided eligibility recommendations. The school will then select a student to receive the gift.

How are SEE Scholarships transferred?

Once your SEE Scholarship has finished fundraising we will transfer it, accompanied by scholarship details, to its designated school as an unrestricted gift. We’ll then keep you updated as your SEE Scholarship is awarded to a deserving student.

Are donations tax-deductible?

Yes! Donations to SEE Scholarships are tax deductible. You will receive a donation receipt for tax purposes via email shortly after your contribution is processed.

What are SEE’s fees?

There aren’t any! We’re supported by angel investors, so 100% of funds raised by a SEE Scholarships are transferred to the scholarship’s designated institution.

Can the scholarship organizer view my donation?

Yup! SEE Scholarship organizers can view contributions made to their scholarships. Feel free to write them a quick note when you make your donation. They’ll be able to see that as well.
