GOAL:

Create an endowment that will provide Two Freeport High School students with need-based scholarships of up to $5,000 per year for four years. Scholarships will be awarded to students who show financial need as well as academic promise.

Scholarship recipients will be selected by a committee consisting of school and community members.

Recipients will be provided with a mentor for the duration of their post-secondary college, certificate, and/or trade school experience.

FINANCIAL PLAN:

Short Term:
Raise $20,000 immediately to begin scholarship assistance while we simultaneously raise funds for a permanent scholarship endowment fund.

Long Term:
Raise $2,000,000 in cash and pledges as a base for a permanent endowment by the end of 2022. This endowment will generate income at 4%, providing $40,000 per year for scholarship assistance.

 

2021:
Award two $5,000 scholarships.

2022:
Award three $5,000 scholarships by renewing the 2021 scholarship and awarding two 2022 scholarships.
