Endowed Scholarships

An endowed scholarship can be established to honor a donor, a loved-one or an organization. Endowments are a lasting way to perpetuate your legacy and belief in the importance of having access to education. Only a portion of the interest earned on the initial amount gifted is used to award scholarships. Once operational, your endowed scholarship will forever impact CF students. What an incredible legacy! Please contact the Director of Development for more information on selection criteria and other endowed scholarship information.

Scholarship Trusts

Scholarship Trusts are another way to establish a named scholarship with the CF Foundation. Like an endowed scholarship, a donor can establish criteria by which the Financial Aid Office selects an appropriate student. Unlike an endowed scholarship that is invested and only a portion of the interest awarded as scholarships, a trust can allocate a donor recommended and predetermined number of scholarships and award amounts. The trust can be added to at any point in time. To remain an operational trust within the CF Foundation, there must be a minimum of $500 on deposit in April of each year.

Pass-through Scholarships

A pass-through scholarship passes from the donor, through the foundation office, to the financial aid office where it is posted to the selected student’s account. Donors can allow the financial aid offices to select deserving students based on donor established critera or they can identify the student to receive the award.

(Note: If the donor designates a specific student it is not eligible for a charitable deduction according to IRS regulations.)
