The Trayvon Martin Foundation received a $50,000 donation on behalf of community organizations and businesses.

The donation will be awarded to four high school seniors who will receive college scholarships.

Orlando donors Boyland Auto Group, LLC, Invictus Law Group, P.L., Boyz-4-Lyfe, and the brothers of Delta Xi Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. all contributed towards the donation.

According to a press release, the scholarship were given in memory of Trayvon Martin to help disadvantaged students.

The scholarships will be given out in Spring 2014.

“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,” said the CEO of Boyland Auto Group, Dorian S. Boyland.

“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.”

The four Orlando-based businesses and organizations who helped contribute to the donation are each established and led by African-American men who are dedicated to uplifting their communities, reads the release.

It says, “These men want to make a positive difference in this tragic situation by contributing to the lives of young people through the Trayvon Martin Foundation.”

  1. I have a dream that the Trayvon Martin Foundation will be used to help all minorities, ricans, asian, black, spanish, womeh, and etc. I also hope to see a top notch concert put on by celebrities, for television, benefiting the Trayvon Martin Foundation.

  2. I have compiled evidence over weeks that indicates that George Zimmerman KNOWS he murdered Trayvon. I created an 11 minute video of George Zimmerman’s lies, and the truth (from his own lips at different points).

    Currently, it is not very popular at all with the pro-Zimmerman crowd-
    but none, except a troll, will argue my points-
    they just are biased…

    Take a look – I did my best to make it worth your time.


      • Except that the gunshop owners have a right to refuse service-
        and even the most staunch supporters of Zimmerman have no argument against the truth

        Ben, may I suggest if or when someone slams your head against a cement sidewalk and threatens to end your life, then might not be a good time to go to a gun store. Preparation to secure your safety is your own responsibility, not ours. Plus, may I also suggest, that you shoot your attacker more than once, and not only lodge a single bullet into your attacker’s heart or head, your odds of survival expand exponentially with more bullets being entered into the perpetrator, imo.

        Ben, contrary to your false-allegations, I have never made a stupid biased comment as you so incorrectly assert. I have, however, provided proven facts and information that clearly points out to anyone intelligent enough to understand that you have been wrong from the get-go, as you continue to defend your own ignorance. God bless and we hope your current recovery from your obvious meth problems hopefully goes a bit better this time around to prevent another stay at your local psych-hospital. We will pray for you Ben, and hopefully you don’t get too many more meds up your butt, that’s gotta hurt, huh? Still though, I can honestly say I am ecstatic and super-happy that Trayvon Martin is now dead as a direct result of his poor-pot-induced decision making skills, or the lack there of.

    Please be advised. To all that would respond to JanCorey. Do not bother. He/She has been on this site since the beginning of the Trayovn Martin murder case. With one sole purpose in mind. To incite and spew racism and bigotry in regard to Trayvon’s murder. His/Her only goal is to stir up anger and hate and try to create a dialogue that suite their twisted and bigoted logic. JanCorey is not interested in an objective conversation. But rather would like to offer up his right wing, tea party, twisted logic in order to skew this conversation. Just leave him alone and do not bother, he isnt worth it. We must leave people like JanCorey to themsleves.

      The Timekeeper, facts about this case continue to scare some people, especially those that do not understand Law or Psychology and thanks TTK for proving my point ohh so well. Justice in this case was achieved the second Trayvon Martin expired, now it’s time to lock up that child’s parents for not controlling their pot-head-gangsta-criminal. LWOP for each of Trayvon’s parents if you ask me.

  4. JanCorey on said:

    That 50-grand ought to go directly to George Zimmerman, and Trayvon’s parents both need to be still charged with crimes for allowing their kid to terrorize the community, but thanks to Mr. Zimmerman for eliminating the immediate threat. Thank our dear God that drug-thug-Trayvon is now dead as a direct result of his felonious actions against a victim.
