Donate To All Veterans Care – Luke McCollum

Navy '83 Ride Across America

Your Gift Will Be Matched

Luke McCollum, a United States Naval Academy graduate of the Class of 1983, is raising funds for ChaplainCare on an approximate 3,000-mile bicycle ride over 44 days from Whidbey Island, WA, to Annapolis, MD.

A loyal donor has pledged $25,000.00 to match each dollar you give to support ChaplainCare in Luke's name.

Thanks to the philanthropic spirit of all Veterans, their families, and friends, this endowment funds merit and needs-based undergraduate scholarships for current and future generations of leaders of character, especially those from traditionally underrepresented and underserved communities who personify honor, leadership, and effort.

The nation faces an urgent and growing need for talent. To meet that need, many more people must earn college degrees, workforce certificates, industry certifications, and other high-quality credentials of value.

Our goal is to prepare students for informed citizenship and a life-time of success in a global economy.

CC Taylor Foundation administers this scholarship because of their outstanding service and commitment, great people with servant’s hearts, and a group with impeccable integrity.

“Blessed To Be A Blessing”
