Our Partners

FRS depends on your help—yes, you!

Thank you to all who generously donate to and sponsor FRS events and programs. You make everything we do possible.

Each year, for example, we receive close to 1,500 applications for our scholarships and are only able to give away a couple dozen. Powerful, but nowhere near as many as we’d like when so many rural students are in need.

Your contributions make those dozens possible, but think of what we could do with just a little more help. 

Donate today to help us make even more of an impact.


Sponsorships provide meaningful support and make a lasting impression on the industry.
