Scholarship Funds

In creating a Scholarship, you invest in your community’s future and show students you care. Your community foundation provides the expertise to help you meet your personal goals and awards Scholarships to deserving students. Your gift can help students — from preschool to postgraduate — achieve their lifetime dreams.

How it works

• You make a gift to your community foundation — you can give cash, appreciated stocks,
real estate, or other assets.
• We set up a Scholarship in your name, in the name of your family or business, or in honor
of any person or organization you choose.
• You receive tax benefits in the year your gift is made.
• Our professional program staff helps you to determine eligibility requirements for
the Scholarship you establish — whether they are based on a student’s field of
study, academic achievements, extracurricular activities, financial need, background,
or geography.
• We handle all the administrative details — and award Scholarships to deserving students
in the name of the fund you establish.
• You receive updates on the impact your gift is making in our community.
• Your gift can be placed into an endowment that is invested over time. Earnings from your
fund are used to make grants addressing community needs. Your gift — and all future
earnings from your gift — is a permanent source of community capital, helping to do
good work forever.

More benefits

You can create a Scholarship as a memorial to someone special, selecting eligibility criteria
that exemplify that person’s goals and values. Or, you may use it to express your
educational values — or those of your family or business. Depending on your preferences,
the Scholarship you establish can support any area of academic need, including tuition,
room and board, and books. Our program staff tracks performance to ensure students
continue to meet the terms for Scholarship support.
If the Scholarship you establish is renewable, you can review updated information on
the progress of recipients over the years. You may even elect to meet these students —
something many donors find rewarding
