Donating



 

Donate

There are many ways to that you can donate to the Foundation. You may choose to donate online or send a check to support our Annual Appeal to fund scholarships.

Larger donations will become a part of our Endowment Fund. A percentage of the Endowment provides the main source of our scholarship dollars each year. The Endowment is professionally managed for conservative growth and perpetuation of our ability to provide scholarships. We have been awarding scholarships since 1958 and our mission is to continue doing so for many years to come.

Our Named Scholarships are established when a donor chooses to honor or remember someone special. Donors of these scholarships receive a written note from the student recipient each year. Please contact our office for details about creating a Named Scholarship.
