Establish A Scholarship Fund

Are you a Philanthropist who is interested in establishing a scholarship fund?

For many reasons donors are often interested in creating scholarship funds. For instance...


  • The opportunity to help young people in our communities continue their education.

  • The chance to support the study and advancement of an interest close to their heart, such as medicine or art history.

  • To simply encourage educational achievement.

  • A local business may establish a fund to provide assistance for the children of the company's employees.


Usually created as permanent endowments, investment earnings from these funds provide scholarships to deserving young people. Often, scholarships memorialize a loved one or honor a special person. Depending on the particular scholarship, you may be involved in:


  • Developing the selection criteria and application materials.

  • Notifying the appropriate sources, such as high school guidance counselors and youth organization leaders, of the availability of the scholarship.

  • Reviewing applications.

  • Developing terms of the scholarship.

  • Ensuring that the terms of the scholarship (i.e. minimum grade requirements, enrollment status, etc.) are met.

Establishing a scholarship fund offers you the opportunity to help deserving young people continue their education and build a solid foundation for their future. We invite you to learn more about the Sandusky County Communities Foundation and how, together, we can support the youth of our community.
