"Young OverAchievers of Today are the Leaders of Tomorrow"
This is the cornerstone belief of our organization. We support this belief by providing scholarships to graduating seniors of No. Nevada area High Schools who exhibit leadership abilities plus scholastic excellence and community involvement. The scholarship selectees are students who have demonstrated above average achievement despite encountering obstacles. Financial need is considered as a final criteria.
With the cost of education increasing each year we feel that helping students achieve their dreams benefits both the student and the community.
OverAchievers has awarded $31,000 in Scholarships from 2007 thru 2014. A list of recipients is on the "Scholarship Program" page of this website.
If you are graduating high school in 2015 and would like to apply for a scholarship please contact us by email or phone. See "Contact" tab.
OverAchievers, founded in 1995, is a Nevada Non-Profit 501(c)3 organization with widespread membership. Since 2006, OverAchievers has hosted an annual fundraiser golf tournament in the Reno-Lake Tahoe area. The net proceeds go directly to our Scholarship fund and a Northern Nevada or Northern California non-profit (selected annually).
We are a low overhead (< 5% annual) non-profit organization.
We believe an environment of comaraderie and joie de vivre adds to our fundraising capabilities.
Our organization is independent, has no political or religious bias, and is non-discriminatory.
The OverAchievers 2014 Fundraiser Invitational Golf Tournament and Silent Auction benefiting the OverAchievers Scholarship Fund was held August 21-23 in Reno/Truckee. Thanks to the generousity of our participants and sponsors, the tournament and auction were very successful and met our 2014 fundraising goals. This will enable OverAchievers to award several new scholarships in 2015.
Participants enjoyed the combined 3 day Ryder Cup team and 2 day individual calcutta format. A new name was added to the Tournament Champions trophy in 2014 as Rich Taylor (Reno) emerged with the high point total over the 3 day event.
The OverAchievers Scholarship Fund provides scholarships to Northern Nevada area High Schools graduating seniors and former graduates for University, College, or trade school education.
The 2015 OverAchievers Fundraiser will be an Invitational event combining a Ryder Cup Team format (3 days) AND Individual Calcutta Stroke play using Stableford scoring. The tournament dates are Thursday-Saturday, August 20st - 22rd. See Golf Fundraiser tab for details.
