The John Starks Foundation Visits the NYSE

Executives and guests of The John Starks Foundation will visit the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) to commemorate The 3 Point Scholarship Program.  To mark the occasion, John Starks, Founder & President of the John Starks Foundation will ring the NYSE Closing Bell.


Established in 1994 by New York Knicks Legend JOHN STARKS, the John Starks Foundation has been supporting various community programs whose primary focus is to further the educational, social and recreational development of disadvantaged youth and families.  In 2006, after witnessing the increasing number of college bound students seeking financial aid, the 3 Point Scholarship was created.  The 3 Point Scholarship provides monetary grants to New York Tri-State and Tulsa area students who demonstrate academic achievement and significant community service commitments but lack the financial resources to pursue a college education.  Since its inception, the 3 Point Scholarship has awarded close to 200 grants to deserving students.  For more information regarding the John Starks Foundation, its annual fundraising events and 3 Point Scholarship, please visit
