The Justin Pepper Foundation was formed in October of 2007, to encourage youth to be charitable in the same manner that Justin had been in his short lifetime. Anyone who ever met Justin enjoyed his outgoing personality and drive, but especially his kindness and concern for others. As a young volunteer he made a difference in his community. We have found that by encouraging
youth to perform volunteer activities and charitable actions, we are enriching our communities.
The youth we recognize with the Justin Thomas Gustav Pepper Memorial Scholarship are clarity to our motto of "....proof that you are never too young to make a difference." Just as Justin was.
