Dear Members and Friends,
I thank you for your generous contributions to the College Club Scholarship Fund. With your help we have been able to carry out one of the Club's most important missions.
We know that significant barriers to higher education are finances and the inability to pay the cost of a college education. The College Club Scholarship Fund, established in 1986, helps to remove those barriers and has awarded over 200 scholarships since its beginnings to bright and talented students to help them in achieving their goal.
We need your help. As college costs escalate and student debt increases, the need for funds and new approaches are necessary. In 1986 we awarded one scholarship for $500 for one year. Last year we awarded three $8000 scholarships to be awarded over a four year period and six $3000 one year named scholarships.
We need your commitment and contribution to achieve our financial goals so that we can continue to support our scholars and award needed funds to new students. You can increase the impact of your contribution if you have an employer matching gift program. You may send a check payable The College Club Scholarship Fund or contribute by using PayPal, available on the College Club's website under Scholarship Fund.
We are grateful to those members who have named the Fund in their estate planning. Please contact me if you are interested in this option.
All donations to our 501c(3) qualified corporation are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
Thank you for your consideration and the support you have given to our scholars and the Fund.
Sylvia Simmons, President
College Club Scholarship Fund, Inc.
