Scholarship Fund

In creating a scholarship fund, you invest in our community’s future and show students you care. Your gift can help students—from preschool to postgraduate—achieve their lifetime dreams.

How it works: 

  • You can create a scholarship fund as a memorial to someone special, selecting eligibility criteria that exemplify that person’s goals and values.
  • You may also use it to express your educational values—or those of your family or business.
  • The scholarship fund you establish can support any area of academic need, including tuition, room and board, and books.
  • Our 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.
