Scholarship Funds

Provide students' educational support.

Donors work with the Foundation to create guidelines for students who may qualify to receive scholarship or grant assistance. These may be based on high school or college attended, merit, need, or field of study.

Endowed Donor-Advised Funds

Stay involved.

Our staff can work with your clients to identify charitable organizations addressing issues of importance to them. They are then able to recommend grants to the charities they wish to support. The Foundation ensures the charitable status of beneficiaries and provides additional grantmaking and administrative support.
