The Foundation's 95 year-old Student Aid Program reaches back to 1923, when the first student loan fund was established at the Foundation.

From that point on, our charitable community has come together under the Foundation's guidance with the common goal of helping local students attend college - more than 15,000 students have been helped since the program's inception.  In the 2018-2019 school year alone, the Foundation's 121 student aid funds provided 641 awards totaling appx. $1,050,000 in student aid.

This longstanding tradition of generous donors supporting aspiring students also reflects the collective belief that higher education will lead to a stronger, more tolerant and vibrant community, state, nation and ultimately, world.  Please let us know how we may be of assistance to you in your own educational or philanthropic pursuits.
