The Michaels Organization Educational Foundation is a non-profit affiliate of The Michaels Organization that administers educational scholarship programs to residents of military housing communities owned or managed by The Michaels Military Organization. Scholarships are awarded annually and students may reapply each year of their education as long as they remain residents.
As the first of its kind and now in its 25th year, more than $3.5 million dollars have been awarded benefiting over 1,800 students. Funds are raised through financial support of corporations, companies, families, private trusts andindividuals familiar with the Michaels business network and its owners Michael and Patricia Levitt. As owners the Levitt’s contribute $2 for every dollar raised by the foundation.
This year 48 residents of Michaels Military Housing received scholarships totally over $150, 000 and five were from Harbor Bay at MacDill. We were thrilled to be able to personally award plaques to the winners and celebrate their achievement with their families.
