Bobcat Pride Scholarship Fund

Educate Embrace Empower

It's BPSF's 10th birthday reboot was an unbelievable celebration!

What a reunion and celebration of an amazing decade!  It was exciting seeing familiar faces and meeting new supporters.  Wake the Dead provided the perfect patio venue on a sunny but not too hot San Marcos afternoon.  River Mountain Green brought us uplifting and relaxing Americana music.  Pennington's Cakes delighted our taste buds with sweetness!  

Our biggest news is the community raised $2,940 for the Jeremy O. Torres Emergency Stabilization Fund!!  This means we have secured enough funding for at least 14 JOT Emergency Stabilization awards.  Our Board of Directors is so grateful to the BPSF community that has sustained our mission for the past 10 years and is launching us into the future with a solid foundation to continue supporting LGBTQIA+ emerging adults!  You are still welcome to make your online donation.

BPSF's Emergency Stabilization Fund Accepting Applications!

BPSF's Jeremy O Torres Emergency Stabilization Fund (JOTESF) continues  accepting applications!  We know how important it is to support our LGBTQIA+ emerging adults when they face an unexpected crisis, especially in light of the impact of COVID-19.

With our expanded mission we continue serving Texas State University students and also LGBTQIA+ emerging adults (between the ages of 18 and 25), residing in the greater San Marcos area.  We recognize college is not everyone's path and we are here as a source of support during those unforeseen difficult times.

Since its inception, the JOTESF has supported over sixty LGBTQIA+ individuals at a time of unexpected need.  Circumstances included medical emergencies, natural disasters, immigration requirements, unexpected work reductions, loss of support from family, and roommate situations negatively impacting rent payment.  We are proud to continue this legacy of support.  We invite you to read about the Legacy of Jeremy and his relationship with BPSF.  

If you would like to speak with one of our board members to learn more, renew your support, or become a donor, please email us and we'll be in touch shortly.  Make sure to subscribe to our newsletter for timely updates --->>>
