Grants and Scholarships

Since its inception, Livvy’s Love, Inc. has provided more than $80,000 in direct and indirect assistance to hundreds of youth. We invest in opportunities for deserving youth ages 5-21 to take advantage of growth and enrichment activities within the areas of education, extracurricular activity, and community involvement. We also assist other youth-serving non-profit organizations through sponsorships, grants, and collaborative efforts. We are able to help young people reach their fullest potential because of caring people like you that provide gifts of donations and participate in our fundraising events. Our organization is growing, and will continue to expand its reach nationally and globally.

Funds raised last year from donations and the Livvy’s Love Fun Run/Walk supported three Olivia Hayes Memorial Scholarships, one “Making a Difference Scholarship Award”, support for the Jonathan L. Skinner Memorial Scholarship, Tucker Football League Cheerleaders, and a host of other community support activities.

Olivia Hayes Memorial Scholarship

The Olivia Hayes Memorial Scholarship, a need-based scholarship sponsored by the foundation, is awarded annually to graduating seniors from Tucker High School who excels academically, is intrinsically motivated, has a passion for serving others, and has demonstrated an exemplary ability to rise above unusual challenges and obstacles while remaining focused on pursuing educational opportunities suitable for a career dedicated to community service. Congratulations to our 2022 Memorial Scholarship recipients, Halle Bereket (Emory University) and Aryss McDuffie (Kennesaw State University). Congratulations to the 2022 Olivia Hayes Book Award recipient Ty West (North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University).
