Dr. Michael Priest was gifted with the determination and drive to not only excel on the baseball diamond, but also in the classroom - earning a 3.9 GPA at Campbell University while starting every game for his college team and breaking university and league records. 

In recognition of Dr. Priest's incredible achievements, we are proud to offer The Dr. Michael Priest Scholarship annually to the college-bound Virginia sportsperson who best exemplifies not only outstanding athletic prowess, but also sportsmanship, individual contribution to their team or teams, community involvement, and academic excellence.

Applications for The Dr. Michael Priest Scholarship will be available beginning Winter 2021.  The first annual scholarship will be granted in the Spring of 2022.  Those college-bound seniors wishing to apply will be able to download form submissions directly via this website.  

You may donate to The Dr. Michael Priest Scholarship fund here.


Dr. Priest loved to give.  During his physical time on Earth he donated money selflessly to many worthy organizations including St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, the Cerebral Palsy Foundation, the Special Olympics, Hot Dog Hill Sanctuary, and countless others. 

Though Michael has moved on to a better place, his spirit of generosity will live on through The Dr. Michael Priest Charitable Trust via donations to these and other worthy causes throughout the United States. 

We encourage donors with knowledge of organizations, families or individuals in need to contact us about possible gifts from the The Dr. Michael Priest Charitable Trust.  Dr. Priest was fortunate to come from a loving Christian family who showered him with support, and recognized that many were not so lucky.  He was magnanimous in his care for others, and we at The Dr. Michael Priest Charitable Trust feel that it is our duty and sincere responsibility to carry that torch forward.   

When you donate, 100% of the proceeds go to these worthy causes.  The Trustees of The Dr. Michael Priest Charitable Trust receive no compensation and will accept no personal financial contributions.  At such time as the trust may be terminated, all remaining funds shall be directed to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.
