The Copper Key Scholarship Promise envisions a giving community that seeks to lift up the children of our economically challenged families through equal access to post-secondary or vocational education.


This unique partnership brings together Boys & Girls Clubs of Martin County, House of HopeNina Haven Scholarships, and The Community Foundation Martin – St. Lucie to open doors for talented middle school students with financial need.

In addition to a full-ride scholarship for the student, the family will be wrapped in community support – from mentoring to meals to mental health.

To see if your child is eligible for a Copper Key promise, please contact The Community Foundation for information and application instructions.
