Investing in deserving students.In creating a Scholarship, you invest in your community’s future and show students you care. Your Community Foundation provides the expertise to help you meet your personal goals and awards Scholarships to deserving students. Your gift can help students — from preschool to postgraduate — achieve their lifetime dreams.
How it works:
Earnings from your fund are used to award scholarships. Your gift — and all future earnings from your gift — is a permanent source of community capital, helping to do good work forever.
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.
A couple years into a comfortable retirement, Mr. and Mrs. DiAngelo, both former teachers, realized how much they missed making a difference in the lives of students. “For both of us, education was not only a profession — it was a calling,” says John DiAngelo. Looking for a way to stay involved, the DiAngelos started a Scholarship with their community foundation. They wanted Scholarships made in their name to benefit students interested in becoming teachers. “The community foundation helped us create our legacy. It’s a wonderful feeling to let students know we still care,” says John. “The community foundation does all the administrative work involved in determining the most deserving students,” says Rose DiAngelo. Over the past three years, The DiAngelo Education Fund has provided six Scholarships to the next generation of teachers.
