In 2013, Thirty-One Gives established the Cindy Monroe Values & Vision Endowed Scholarship to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Thirty-One Gifts. This scholarship supports the development of girls in the greater Chattanooga area (Hamilton County, TN) where Thirty-One’s Founder, President & CEO Cindy Monroe was born and raised, and also where the business was founded.
Each year, the Cindy Monroe Values & Vision Endowed Scholarship will honor a girl in the Chattanooga area who embodies Cindy Monroe, Founder, President & CEO of Thirty-One Gifts, core values of building relationships, leadership and community involvement. The chosen applicant will receive an annual $3,100 scholarship for four years, totaling $12,400 to support her college career. The chosen applicant will also be able to pick five items out of our current catalog to help get her college ready. A luncheon in the chosen applicants’ honor will also be hosted by Thirty-One members in the Chattanooga area and she will also be featured in our magazine, Virtuous Woman.

To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Thirty-One Gifts, the company’s charitable fund – Thirty- One Gives – made a $31,000 investment to establish the Cindy Monroe Values & Vision Endowed Scholarship. This donation will be used to support the development of girls in the Chattanooga, TN community where Founder, President & CEO Cindy Monroe was born and raised, and where she founded Thirty-One Gifts.
Cindy Monroe launched Thirty-One Gifts in the basement of her Chattanooga home in 2003 with just two employees by her side. Now Thirty-One is the 28th largest direct selling companies in the world, with a sales force of more than 70,000 women across the U.S. and Canada. To learn more visit thirtyonegifts.com.
More important to her than any business accomplishment is her mission to celebrate, encourage and reward women for who they are. She named the company after Proverbs 31, a chapter in the Bible devoted to celebrating women’s strengths. She’s passionate about empowering women by giving them a chance to run their own business while being home with their children, setting their own hours and working as much or as little as they wish.
This scholarship aligns with our core mission to raise confident girls of all ages, and it symbolizes our ongoing support for the community where Thirty-One was established. Chattanooga remains a very important community to the founding families of the company, many of whom still have family members living there today.
The Cindy Monroe Values & Vision Endowed Scholarship is awarded annually to a girl in the greater Chattanooga area who shares Cindy’s passion for dreaming big and helping others.
