Foundation Voices is the blog of the Mensa Foundation, where you can learn about our programs and efforts from the Trustees themselves, as well as from committee chairs, appointees, donors, staff members and supporters of the Foundation. We hope you'll find their insights informational and inspiring.

2015 has been a superb year at the Mensa Foundation. Together we have sent 187 students back to school with a little extra money for tuition and books, we explored the inner reaches of the brain and how it works, and our gifted children resources were used by teachers throughout the world. And we were just getting started.

As we wrap up this year, 188 grateful students will receive scholarship money thanks to the donors and local groups who contributed funds to sustain and increase scholarship awards. The dedication of the 400 to 500 volunteers who serve as judges and chairs at the local, regional, national and international level are definitely the backbone of the program and make me very proud to be a Mensa member.
