The Banks Foundation, Inc. is a nonprofit organization who works with colleges and universities to offer scholarships. The college or university receives funds from The Banks Foundation, Inc. The school then awards the scholarship directly to the student.
In addition to our operating scholarships, the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, Grainger College of Engineering hosts the National Day of Love® Endowment started by The Banks Foundation, Inc.'s founders, Charles and Diedre Banks. Charles and Diedre Banks started the endowment in 2021 to support students of the Morrill Engineering Program to receive valuable scholarship dollars.
