Whether you are a high school student in search of scholarship assistance, or a potential donor wanting to make a difference by helping local students achieve their educational dreams, you’ve come to the right place.

‘The Miss Mattie Foundation’ is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization formed to honor Miss Mattie Rials and her passionate educational and community service contributions to our area. The foundation is dedicated to raising and awarding funds for college scholarships to deserving high school students from Pike, Amite and Walthall counties in Mississippi.

We are firm believers that education is the key to a brighter future for all of us. Our hope is that, with the community’s help, we will be able to achieve our mission – to ensure that high school students in Pike, Amite and Walthall counties with the academic qualifications, commitment to community service and desire to attend college will be given that opportunity. We hope you will join us in making that mission a reality.
