Goppert Foundation American Dream Grant Scholarship
The Goppert Foundation was established in 1959 by Clarence H. Goppert, a banker and philanthropist who believed in reinvesting earnings back into the community.
Corey Strider, executive vice president of Goppert Financial Bank in Lathrop and a 1996 Northwest alumnus, said supporting a program such as the American Dream Grant fully supports the mission of the Goppert Foundation, which typically makes grants in the areas of child and youth services, social and human services, the economically disadvantaged, education, hospitals and minorities.
"There are quite a few students in the areas that Goppert Financial Bank serves who graduate from high school and choose to attend Northwest," Strider said. "This gift from the Goppert Foundation will not only financially assist students, but ideally someday after they graduate they'll return to these communities to live and work."
