Scholar’s Fund – March – April
For the past 30 years this Fund has provided awards to assist eligible student employees with scholarship funds to support their education after graduation from high school. This is a wonderful way for residents to support students in their pursuit of higher education. Students who are successful in the application process receive scholarships for college or other accredited educational institutions. All gifts to the Scholars’ Fund are tax-deductible. Gifts may be made any time of the year, although the campaign runs from March 26 to April 30, 2018.
The Scholar’s Fund Committee chaired by Charlie Eichenlaub manages the scholarship selection process with the administration of the funds by the Philanthropy Department.
