The Bootstraps Foundation | Accurate Mortgage

The Bootstraps Foundation

Accurate Mortgage Group believes in the youth in Middle Tennessee, and believes in giving back.

We have been a local mortgage lender for more than a decade in the Middle Tennessee area, and we believe in giving back to our community. There are many worthy causes, but we’ve chosen to partner with The Bootstraps Foundation, which awards college scholarships to a select group of graduating high school seniors.

The Bootstraps Foundation was established in 1987 to champion the higher educational needs of Middle Tennessee students who have demonstrated the effort and will to succeed in the face of adversity. Just like the organization, Accurate Mortgage is also committed to the education of our young people, for they will soon be the leaders of our communities, our businesses and our country. 

The Bootstraps Foundation has granted nearly $1 million in scholarships since its inception. The Bootstraps Foundation accepts a limit of one nomination per school for each year’s awards. The student is to be nominated by the principal and faculty of each school. 

Award winners are selected from the nominees by a panel of judges who are looking for those students who have had to “pull themselves up by their bootstraps” in order to succeed. Finalists are notified and asked to meet with the Bootstraps’ Selection Committee for a personal interview. Award winners are notified and then presented at The Bootstraps Foundation Annual Banquet held each May in Nashville.
