Start A Scholarship Fund

We administer over 35 Scholarship Funds that are helping to create hope and opportunity for Oceana County youth. You can join us in supporting education by starting your own fund. It’s easy and we can help!

Start your fund with a gift of $10,000 or more. Or “save up” for one over five years by starting a Build A Fund with a minimum of $500. Establish guidelines to determine who is eligible or leave it to us to determine where your award will fill the greatest need and make the most impact. You can create your fund:

  • In your name
  • In the name of a loved one
  • For graduates of a specific school
  • For those going to a specific college or other institution
  • Towards a specific field of study
  • Or to meet the greatest need

Rely on our expertise to handle all of the details! Students complete one online application to be in the running for all of our scholarships. Internal review and interviews by volunteer community committee members help us match students with available awards. Finally, we make payments directly to the college or institution and monitor student achievement.

When you’re ready to talk,  we’re here to help!
