By aligning our organization with like-minded companies, non-profits and individuals, we fundraise to give a monetary award to students with Tourette Syndrome. Donations go directly to students because our dedicated professionals volunteer their time and effort. We take pride in our Platinum participation level as Guidestar rated non-profit.
Scholarships are made possible through donations, fundraising and grants. Fall 2018 scholarships are provided for by all of our supporters including the BCTF, Brian Burns #ticcingawaythemiles, Cozware, Teamup4TS and Disney VoluntEARS.
Make a single or monthly donation directly from your bank account, credit card, or Paypal.
Educating others about Tourette Syndrome in schools and the community by any method.

Board members and advisors who share the vision
Students challenged with Tourette Syndrome face many difficulties as they develop into adults. Our vision is to help those with this neuro-developmental disorder by educating the public with outreach, advocating for their needs and fostering a desire to continue with secondary education. Tourette Syndrome is a spectrum disorder that is characterized by noises and movements that are not controllable. Other symptoms not as apparent are OCD, ADHD, anxiety, depression, rage, learning disorders, and more.
Fall 2016 2, $1000 scholarships were given
Fall 2017 4, $1000 scholarships were given
Fall 2018 4, $1250 scholarships + 5, $1000 scholarship and 1, $500 scholarship were given
Our goal is to give additional scholarships, increase the award amount and continue to help youth and young adults with Tourette Syndrome succeed.
