The Optimists are a part of an organization that focuses on helping the youth in the community. We have a local Optimist club in Columbus, Georgia, that raises money for donations for local youth charities. Our local club raises about $20,000 a year on average.  

Some charities that this club helps with are JDRF and “Backpack Buddies” which helps feed many students whose families may be struggling financially.

The Optimist Club has two fundraisers each year, and all the proceeds are donated to charity making this a non-profit organization helping the community.  

Optimists International even offers a scholarship contest which can be found at their website: https://www.optimist.org/member/scholarships1.cfm.
