Dear Friends and Supporters:

The late Tyrus R. Cobb established the Ty Cobb Educational Foundation more than 50 years ago for the purpose of assisting capable and deserving residents of Georgia in completing their college education.

Since that small beginning in 1953, the Foundation has awarded funds exceeding $16 million to deserving Georgia students attending an accredited college or university full time. Scholarships are granted to undergraduate students beyond the freshman year and to students pursuing professional degrees in medicine and dentistry.

One of major league baseball’s greatest stars of his time, Ty Cobb established the Foundation because he knew the value of a good education. A native of Royston, Georgia, he designated that all scholarship recipients be Georgia residents, while recognizing that these students could obtain a quality education at colleges and universities in Georgia or elsewhere in the country.

Through the years, all scholarships are granted without subsequent obligation of the student to the Foundation. However, former recipients and others have supported the work of the Foundation through charitable gifts in support of its mission. We welcome you to join us as partners in this mission.

Each year some 300 Georgia students receive awards, but many more are turned away due to funding limitations.

We encourage you to help us help others. Your tax deductible gift may be sent to:

The Ty Cobb Foundation accepts contributions to support our charitable activities. In addition to cash donations, we accept gifts of appreciated stocks and securities as well as charitable IRA distributions. These contributions may provide tax benefits to the donor. Please discuss with your tax advisor for more details. Contact us so that we may assist you with the donation process.

Together we can continue Ty Cobb’s dream to assist capable and deserving residents of Georgia in completing their education.

Yours in educational success,
Ty Cobb Educational Foundation
