If you are looking for a rewarding way to give back to the community while aiding college students and emerging leaders in advancing their careers, a Scholarship Award Endowment Fund with the JCF could be a great fit for you.
Since the late 1990's, the JCF has collaborated with donors to establish funds that provide awards to individuals that meet the donor's preferred criteria.
Here are four fast facts about creating a Scholarship Award Fund:
Create Your Fund's Name: Your fund can be created in your name, in honor or in memory of a loved one, or in another way as you see fit.
Grow Your Fund Over Time: Once your fund is created, you or anybody can add to it over time, in order to provide more financial awards.
Choose Your Preferred Award Criteria: Your award can benefit college scholars, emerging community leaders, Israel travel opportunities and more. You can also set criteria for your ideal candidates, ranging from merit achievements to financial need, and more.
Meet Your Awardees: Award donors are invited to attend our annual Scholarship & Emerging Leader Awards Reception, where awards are presented to the winners and donors have an opportunity to interact with the awardees and their families.
As some background, after all applications are received each year, a committee of volunteers reviews each application to ensure that the applicants meet your fund's desired criteria, and subsequently determines the award amounts. With an endowment fund, you will be ensuring that your award is granted to deserving individuals every year for generations to come.
To get a better understanding of how our donors have established criteria for their funds, please visit the JCF Scholarship & Emerging Leader Awards page and you can gain some perspective.
