What is a Scholarship Fund?
It is a way to help others pursue their education – with a focus of the donor’s choice. Scholarships can support students who are graduating from a particular school, attending a particular school, or studying a specific subject.
Scholarship funds can be set up in a benefactor’s name or the name of a loved one, so a deserving individual can get an education they might not otherwise receive. The Community Foundation offers a simple solution to donors who want to start a scholarship program. For your convenience, we perform all the administrative duties and conform strictly to standards. Donors can contribute to existing funds or establish a new scholarship fund. Let us know how we can help you realize your charitable goals.
If you are interested in becoming a donor, would like to make a donation to an existing scholarship fund, or have any questions, call us at 724-548-5897, or contact us.
