Scholarship Funds

Scholarships (Endowed)

When donors choose to endow a gift to the community foundation, the principal of the fund is never spent. It can grow over time to generate an increasing stream of funding devoted to supporting the continued pursuit of education goals. Earnings are used to make grants that meet community needs. The donors' gift—and all future income from the gift—is a permanent source of community funding that makes scholarships possible, forever.

Scholarships (Non-Endowed)

Donors invest in our community’s future and show students they care, all with the guidance and personal services of the community foundation.
