Establishing a Scholarship

Many ways exist to fund a scholarship including gifts of cash, appreciated securities, personal or real properties, bequests, trusts, life insurance policies or retirement funds. A Scholarship Agreement will be created between you and the Foundation which outlines the donor’s criteria for awarding the scholarship. The Foundation encourages you to keep the criteria as broad as possible. A sample agreement and an outline of an agreement are available for your review. Contact us to today to begin our partnership changing student’s lives. 941-752-5390.

Types of Scholarships

Annual Named Scholarships

Require an annual contribution – suggested $1,000.00 minimum – which will be awarded to students on an annual basis per your specifications.

Endowed Scholarships

Require a minimum contribution of $25,000.00 and may be paid over a period of five years.

Give to an Existing Scholarship

If you are interested in providing funding for scholarship purposes, but you aren’t ready yet to establish a named scholarship, contributing to an existing scholarship is an opportunity that may fulfill your intention. Simply earmark your contribution for the general scholarship fund.
