A competent leader can get efficient service from poor troops, while on the contrary an incapable leader can demoralize the best of troops."
General John J. Pershing
WHO WE ARE

Pershing.
The Pershing Foundation envisions funding for programs that help America’s youth mature and grow into the leaders of tomorrow, capable of meeting the challenges of an increasingly competitive global community, both on the battlefield and in the boardroom.

We provide scholarships and grants for both high school and college students to partake in superior and prestigious leadership programming that will equip them for success and changing our world! We financially support cadets of Pershing Rifles, the National Society of Blackjacks, and Pershing Angels.
