scholarship_image2-300x199 “The greatest good you can do for another is not just share your riches, but to reveal to him his own.”  -- Benjamin Disraeli KMR takes deep satisfaction in many different acts of compassion, such as feeding the hungry, protecting children from abuse, and providing some measure of comfort to the parents of hospitalized kids. But perhaps the most gratifying aspect of KMR’s work lies in the support the Foundation offers to its scholarship recipients. KMR sees this assistance not only as a gift, but as a profound investment in its own community and in our shared future. The KMR Group Foundation seeks to recognize accomplished students, invest in their potential and assist them in funding their education. Every spring, the KMR Group Foundation awards a number of scholarships to seniors graduating from high schools in Southwest Washington. The scholarships range from $1,000 to $3,500 per school year and may be renewable for up to four years, provided the recipient conforms to the requirements set forth in the award.
