You may fund additional scholarships by sponsoring a full scholarship OR contributing any amount and we'll add it with other donations.
A generous donation from Karen and Lester Gerhardt funds a 3rd scholarship each year through 2021, and a Community-Funded Scholarship, made up of various donations, will fund a scholarship each time the total reaches $1,000. The goals chart above shows the progress toward our next Community-Funded Scholarship.
