Good Tidings Foundation is a non-profit, 501-(c)-3 children's charity that encourages and supports the growth of arginalized children in the Bay Area by creating spaces for athletics, artistic activities, education, and wonder. Our purpose is to provide opportunities that otherwise would be unavailable to kids regardless of their financial status, ethnic origin, or religion. We created this education scholarship award in 1999 for high school seniors who recognize the benefits of serving their community. Our scholarships award high school seniors based on the greatest service and financial need.
