Since the 2000 academic year, students residing in Troy, Ohio have had the opportunity to apply for Last Dollar Grants to fill the gaps in funding their tuition, room and board expenses. Many students rely on these grants to be able to attend a post-secondary training institution or college. Students can apply annually within five years past high school graduation. Other criteria apply.

Foundation grants, individual donors’ gifts and Strawberry Salsa profits fund TFBT’s Last Dollar Grant program. Without our community, these grants would not be possible! LDG recipients give back to the community through service projects in Troy, Ohio each year. Nearly 11,000 service hours have been completed by our recipients!

We are proud to support our students’ academic pursuits:
