Since 1959, the Men Who Dare, Inc., has awarded over 580 scholarships to college/trade school bound students who had limited resources to achieve their higher education goals. Many of the Men Who Dare scholars (recipients) have completed their education and are giving back by helping others and serving the community.

In June 1964, the Men Who Dare, Inc., was incorporated and chartered as a non-profit organization by the State of Michigan. The Federal Government, Department of Internal Revenue, granted the organization a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status in December 1966.
