Community Scholarship Endowment
A Forever Investment For Our Students
What is the Community Scholarship Fund?
The Community Scholarship Endowment is a general scholarship fund at the Shasta Regional Community Foundation that exists with the purpose of benefiting the students of Shasta and Siskiyou Counties forever. It was created in 2009 with a gift from the KRCR Academic Challenge Fund at the Community Foundation. This gift of $8,000 established the Community Scholarship Endowment thereby giving Northstate residents a new option for their charitable giving.
Recognize Loved Ones
The Community Scholarship Endowment gives the option for you, your business, family or friends to give back to the students of our region without the headaches that come with administrating a small scholarship fund or foundation on your own. Gifts of all amounts, large or small, can be given to the Community Scholarship Endowment in your own name or the name of a loved one. For example, you can:
With each gift your name, the name of your loved one or the name of your business will be acknowledged on this page of our website. Additionally, for each donation of $100 and more, your name will be printed in the Community Foundationís Annual Report. If you or your groupís donations total $5,000 or more you will be permanently recognized as a Contributor to the Community Scholarship Endowment.
Enjoy Trusted Expertise
The Community Foundation has had nearly ten years experience in administering scholarship funds for the Northstate region. Since 2001, the Community Foundation has awarded over 300 scholarships enabling students to go to colleges and universities everywhere from Shasta College and College of the Siskiyous to Brown, Stanford and the US Naval Academy. Please help us continue in this tradition with your gift to the Community Scholarship Endowment which will benefit students in Shasta and Siskiyou counties forever.
