Start a Scholarship Fund
Supporting the education of future LGBTQ and straight allied leaders is important to many Pride Foundation donors. One of the most popular ways to do this is by establishing a scholarship fund, often one that reflects your particular interests. You can create the scholarship criteria, which might include geographical region, field of study, heritage, academic achievement, economic need, and more. You can also be involved in choosing the recipients of your scholarship.
Starting a scholarship is a great way to honor someone, whether living or gone. You can also establish a scholarship to be funded in your will or other estate plans.
Starting a scholarship fund at Pride Foundation is easy and we would be happy to talk to you about it, whether you are just thinking about it or fully committed to the idea. Please contact Jody Waits, Director of Community Giving at 1.800.735.7287. You can also download our Change The Future brochure, which explains more about starting a scholarship fund.
