There are two types of scholarships that can be established with the Jefferson College Foundation: Annual Named or Endowed Named.
An Annual Named Scholarship may be established with a minimum gift of $2,500. The fund must maintain a $2,500 balance each year through annual gifts as the funds are distributed. An Endowed Named Scholarship requires a minimum gift of $35,000, which can be paid all at once or through pledge payments over a period of five years, if so desired.
While Annual Named Scholarships provide immediate support to students, Endowed Named Scholarships accrue interest and only the interest is awarded for scholarships each year, leaving the principal intact indefinitely.
If you wish to support an existing scholarship fund, you may do so with a gift of any amount. The Jefferson College Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization, therefore 100% of cash contributions are tax-deductible.
When you complete the Scholarship Covenant Form and create a new scholarship, you decide what qualifications a student must possess to qualify. For example, you may designate a specific graduating school district, traditional or non-traditional student, level of financial need, grade point average, etc.
