The Scholarship Fund

Trail Blazers ensures true accessibility to all through our Scholarship Fund; full and partial scholarships are provided to families based on need. We rely on the generous contributions of individual donors and sponsors to support this Fund. 85 cents of every donated dollar directly supports our children and program activities! Check out our results page to learn how your donation impacts our youth.

The Islands Fund has challenged Trail Blazers to raise support for the Scholarship Fund and will match, dollar for dollar, all donations to the Scholarship Fund received by June 1, 2017! Consider making a gift today and support essential opportunities for children to play, to learn, and to grow.


If you prefer, you may mail a check to our office at 394 Rogers Avenue (Attn: Development), Brooklyn, NY 11225. In absence of any directive, donations are assigned to the Scholarship Fund.

Monthly gifts throughout the year are an easy way to support Trail Blazers' programs. If you would like to make regular contributions, please download this Pledge Form (PDF reader needed) and mail the completed form to our office at the address above.
