Toole’s for School Scholarship Fund

Home/Toole’s for School Scholarship Fund


The Toole’s for School Scholarship fund was established in 2018 to provide funding resources to aspiring students who may have financial hurdles obstructing their ability to pursue and achieve their educational dreams. The scholarship is available to high school seniors who are committed to pursuing higher education.


Rosie C. Toole is the matriarch of the Toole family.  She understood barriers can be broken and overcome through determination and education. Despite not having an opportunity for post-secondary education herself at the time, as a single mother, through prayer and willpower alone, she enabled her children to pursue and receive a post-secondary education. Even more astonishing, she was able to fund most of this herself.

As a result, her children are all successful in their careers. 

She instilled in them the desire to lead through service; thus, the Toole’s for School Scholarship was born. Now, three generations of the Toole family are committed to providing these opportunities for others. Their overarching belief is that financial hardships should not impede anyone’s educational aspirations. They also believe that where one comes from isn’t a deterrent, but a launching pad for success.
