The VANROSS Foundation is an educational 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that awards partial scholarships to deserving high school seniors in the states of Missouri, Kansas, Tennessee and Texas. The partial scholarships are to help assist students with payments toward their tuition.  TVF scholarships are made available by holding various fundraising events throughout the year. We also look to receive state and federal grants, monetary gifts, and donations to help with giving.


Mission Statement

The mission of the VANROSS Foundation (TVF) is to help high school seniors with their college tuition. We promote and develop educational opportunities  by hosting events such as our College Readiness Roundup (CRR). 


Thank You

Everyday, people are faced with opportunities to give to their favorite charities by volunteering or through monetary donations. We would not be able to accomplish our desired goals without supporters like you. Whether it's verbal, written or through actions, we would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation for each and every contribution. Because of your generous gifts, our high school seniors will be able to reach upward and move a little closer to their dreams. Blessings to each of you!  


College Readiness Roundup

Seniors are trying to decide if college life is within their reach. We understand that the rising cost of higher education can be a challenge for many families and our goal is to make college more accessible!

Attending a college, university, trade school or home school of your choice can be a difficult time. There are so many things to do, yet so little time to cover it all.  We're listening, and we're ready to walk you through the process! Please join us in 2020 so we can help  make your choices in the New Year a little more enjoyable. 

About CRR

 College Readiness Roundup (CRR) is the perfect way to help you sort out answers to all your questions. We  are excited about future events to  help you get the information you need as you move toward the road to success.
