Share  America Foundation, Inc., a 501-C-3 of Georgia, fosters the arts and  preserves the history of Appalachia through the presentation of the  Pearl and Floyd Franks Scholarship to youth who continue traditional  music styles of the region. It also hosts special events and creates  projects that perpetuate the Appalachian experience. It operates with a  five-member volunteer board, currently including Chairman Gary Knowles,  Vice Chairman Jimmy Terrell, Secretary James Pelt, President Randall  Franks, and Vice President Jerry Robinson, and a task force of  volunteers. The organization has assisted 30 college scholars thus far and numerous other youth in aspiring towards their musical goals through  entertainer mentors, live performances, and creating opportunities for  learning and success. The organization also from time-to-time either on its own or through partnerships with other charities takes on other charitable and educational projects which benefit the Appalachia region and its residents.
