Opportunity Fund

The LearnServe Opportunity Fund was created to celebrate ten years of catalyzing social entrepreneurship and global awareness among Washington, DC area youth, and honors Hugh Riddleberger and Louise McIlhenny. Hugh, the founder of LearnServe, and his wife Louise have devoted their careers in education to helping students from all backgrounds turn their dreams into action.

The Opportunity Fund enhances LearnServe’s ability to award financial scholarships and support its commitment to diversity. In particular, it enables LearnServe to support those students who demonstrate creativity, potential, and passion for a cause – but who lack the resources to participate fully in LearnServe’s life changing programs both locally and abroad.  The Fund supports students’ participation in international summer service trips and in our social entrepreneurship training – and support LearnServe’s work to enhance leadership development, cross-cultural understanding, and social impact.

We announced the launch at our 10th anniversary celebration in November 2013.
