Kurt Schultz Memorial Scholarship Fund

In August of 2012, the Victories community lost a dear friend in Kurt Schultz, a long-time leader of the BreakThrough Weekend and the president of our board from its inception until his death. Over a period of 20 years, Kurt helped hundreds of men change their lives and indirectly touched thousands more. It was a point of honor for Kurt that no man be turned away from our weekends or groups for the inability to pay, and he helped to create an informal scholarship program to help those in need.

In November of 2012 in honor of Kurt, the Victories Board established the Kurt Schultz Memorial Scholarship Fund as a restricted account to be used exclusively for Victories scholarships.

If you wish to know more about Kurt and his service to Victories and the men it serves, visit this link about the announcement of his passing.

It is our hope that through this fund we will be able to provide a scholarship to every man who needs one for weekend programs, trainings, and events.

As we enter 2016, many men will need our support to attend a weekend. In 2014 and 2015, 25% of men who attended weekends needed scholarship assistance.
