The MO-SCI Charitable Foundation was founded in 2002, by the officers of the MO-SCI Corporation, for the purpose of supporting charitable, educational, scientific and humanitarian organizations in the greater Rolla area. This was a major step for a small company, but it was considered important to provide the employees and officers of MO-SCI Corp a way that they could collectively contribute, in important ways, to the general welfare of the Rolla area. The MO-SCI Charitable Foundation is a Missouri Non Profit Corporation and is Federally recognized as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
Each year the MO-SCI Corporation transfers a portion of its income to the MO-SCI Charitable Foundation. The Board of Directors of the MO-SCI Charitable Foundation review requests that are received from organizations in the greater Rolla area and make the difficult decision where the funds can be used most effectively. Typically, a major fraction of the available funds are used to assist young persons with their educational expenses. This includes:

(3) funding scholarships of various kinds to support teenagers participating in Community Partnership programs,
