The Trayvon Martin Foundation recently received a $50,000 donation from four Orlando-based businesses and community organizations.

According to reports, the money will be used for scholarships to help disadvantaged students finance their college careers. The contributions, which will be distributed in Spring 2014 in memory of the slain teenager, came from Boyland Auto Group, LLC, Invictus Law Group, P.L., Boyz-4-Lyfe and the Delta Xi Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.

“The purpose of this scholarship is to bridge the socio-economic gap among young people of color in the U.S., through educational opportunities for disadvantaged students who cannot afford a college education,” the CEO of Boyland Auto Group, Dorian S. Boyland, said. “We are doing what we can to make the world a better place by not being divisive but by uplifting our community through educational opportunities for kids who otherwise, would not have the same opportunity.”

Sources say the scholarships will be awarded to four graduating seniors at Dr. Michael Krop Senior High School in Miami, Florida.
