Endowed Scholarships

An endowed scholarship educates students in perpetuity. Contributions of $125,000 for a general scholarship or $250,000 for an independent restricted scholarship are available. An individual, corporation, or foundation can establish a scholarship and be paid in a lump sum or paid over time. Scholarships are often named in honor or memory of a person who personifies its spirit of both leadership and giving, but the endowment can be named at the donor’s discretion.

Leave a Legacy

Planned Giving

Consider setting up an endowment for a Women’s Council scholarship through estate planning. Those who either fund or plan a deferred gift, such as a bequest or a life income plan, may, if they wish, become members of the 1848 Society, which recognizes planned giving donors. The scholarship would then be endowed at the execution of the estate.
