The Messner Foundation identifies deserving high school students who have demonstrated leadership traits and gives those students the resources and connections they need to flourish. The goal of the Messner Foundation is to cultivate the next generation of business and community leaders.

Of course, every leader demands results from themselves and others. The Messner Foundation will follow its Scholars to ensure they are working hard, taking initiative, and holding themselves to the highest of standards. The Messner Foundation will not give students a blank check for a four-year education. The Messner Foundation will continue providing scholarship funds and assistance to Scholars who continue to accept responsibility, seek opportunity, and strive for achievement.

The Messner Foundation sincerely hopes that you will take advantage of Messner Reeves' expertise by making a donation to the Messner Foundation; a donation that will help develop tomorrow's business and community leaders.
