Dansby Scholarship for Girls in STEM

August 23, 2020

“Philanthropy is about giving, donating your time, money, experience, knowledge, skills, or talent to better the world. I give because even when I feel like it’s not a lot, I’m reminded that it’s enough and that I still have something to give that can impact and change the future of just one girl. Regardless of your status or net worth anyone can be a philanthropist. I wish my legacy to be impactful in a way that my work and projects I share inspire or move people to change something in their lives or to be moved to make something magical that inspires and helps others. I may not be able to change the world, but I can try to inspire enough people to remind them that they are worth pursuing knowledge.” - Amie Dansby
