Our community service efforts

Local Group presents scholarship to studentMany of Mensa's Local Groups make their communities better. They sponsor elementary-school science fairs, raise scholarship money, donate school supplies and stock local libraries with new books. They lend their support to PBS pledge drives and bike rides for kidney research. All community service efforts are recognized by the national Community Activities Program, which encourages groups to share their experiences and ideas with other groups around the nation.

Local Groups participate in any local community enrichment activity they choose and enter their projects (and results) in the program. They are recognized during American Mensa's Annual Gathering.
