Melbourne— 11/18/2020 Club Esteem was recently selected as one of three local non-profits to compete in a Facebook contest to help commemorate State Title’s 40th Anniversary. By garnering the most likes on their contest post by the end of October, Club Esteem was awarded the $10,000 grand prize while the other two organizations each received $5,000. 

Long time Club Esteem supporter and owner of State Title, Tom Stallard, said “We are so excited for Club Esteem! They are an incredible organization with tremendous results. We know that Club Esteem will make good use of the money.”

Community Impact

The $10,000 will be used to support Club Esteem’s many educational and enrichment programs that impact the lives of students living in economically disadvantaged communities within the cities of Melbourne and Palm Bay. Our programs are designed to inspire youth to break the cycle of poverty and develop into healthy, caring and successful adults. We believe that all children deserve equal opportunity to reach their full potential, regardless of their economic circumstances. Our goal is to ensure students are promoted to the next grade level and ultimately graduate from high school well prepared for college or post-secondary employment. 

For almost 30 years, Club Esteem has been serving the community with quality after-school and summer enrichment programs with proven success. Year after year our students defy the odds and not only graduate high school but many go on to become the first in their family to attend college – earning degrees in Engineering, Science, Medicine, Psychology, and Criminal Justice, to name a few.

“We are very fortunate to have the generous support of Tom and Mary B. Stallard of State Title, who see the direct impact Club Esteem’s programs make and the opportunities they provide to deserving children in the community”, said Club Esteem’s Executive Director, Ellena Little.
