The law firm of Smith Villazor, in conjunction with Yorkville Advisors, a global alternative investment management firm, has just announced a donation of $50,000 to Oliver Scholars. Oliver’s vision is of a world in which there is truly diverse leadership at every level and in every field, independent of race or class. To get there, Oliver seeks to remove barriers that have historically shaped opportunity for Black and Latino communities. This gift will go directly toward supporting our Scholars and their dedication to cultivating real equity by striving for excellence in scholarship, taking up leadership in their home and school communities, and finding ways to give back through community service.
