The Vatic Foundation


The VATIC Foundation will provide post-secondary scholarship funding 

for individuals who have PTSD and trauma-related mental illness. We are committed to providing scholarships, education, and the necessary support through the power of community.

Our Aim, the Vatic Foundations Goal, Ginger's Mission:

· Is to break the negative cycles and attitudes that often surround mental illness;

· To continue to challenge the harmful stigma burdening those trying to gain an education; and,

· Educate our community and help individuals break the cycles of depression.

The VATIC Foundations mission will include efforts to work with our community and harness the resources available to tackle the culture of discrimination impacting the mental health community. 

Individuals receiving support will be more likely to recover if they feel safe, connected, calm and hopeful; while finding ways to help themselves.

Once addressed, our youth can begin to learn and enjoy living!

To support someone’s future, we'll need your support. Please donate today, don't wait for tomorrow to do what we can accomplish today.

You Can Make a Difference


"From the scholarships researched, we found the least amount available to those diagnosed, 

living with, or recovering from a mental health issue." - Vatic Foundation

Trauma can occur when a stressful event (often unexpected) causes significant psychological distress. When psychological trauma persists and is re-experienced by the victim through flashbacks, nightmares, and/or unexpected triggers, this person may be experiencing Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). 

Why Providing Students with Mental Health Issues Scholarship Money Benefits Everyone?

  • We can protect students from further physical or psychological harm;
  • Many times, it is a daily struggle for survival;
  • Help return students to school and familiar routines;
  • Let students know they are not alone because of a stressful and traumatic event;
  • Eliminate the STIGMA for future students success;
  • Lower future healthcare costs;
  • Ensure basic practical needs are met; and,
  • Encourage participation in our community and provide positive means of coping. 

Education is invaluable for someone who is facing or has been through a traumatic event! 

Education can offer a new career, a sense of self-esteem and accomplishment, which can help students contribute to their sense of well-being.
