The Foundation welcomes gifts and donations from individuals or families in any amount. The process is short and simple. Donations can be made in the name of the donor or the family by check or by credit card online. Honorariums and Memorials are a special way to honor and remember someone on a special occasion. We ask you to consider these important ways of giving.
  • Cash gifts made by check or credit card.
    The gift may be a one-time gift or the gift can be amounts given periodically by the month or by the quarter, for one year or more. This method allows the donor, over time, to build a larger contribution.

  • Pledges.
    The donor makes a gift commitment typically lasting over a three to five year period.

  • Gifts through partnership events.
    The Foundation partners with corporations and educational institutions in promoting scheduled fundraising events during the year. The Foundation raises funds through the sale of food or other products and through silent auctions at the special event. This is one of the ways the Foundation uses to engage community participation in the funding of quality education for young scholars who need financial assistance.

  • Full four-year scholarship.
    A donor can fund a complete four-year scholarship.

  • Tribute or memorial gifts.
    A donor can establish legacy gift to honor or memorialize an individual
