Establishing a scholarship fund to help local students achieve their educational goals is a perfect way for donors to honor or remember a loved one through the Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region.

Set Up A Scholarship

Scholarship funds provide educational opportunities and financial assistance for students.  Donors can designate eligibility requirements or selection criteria, and work with the Community Foundation to name an advisory committee to assist with making awards.  Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the Community Foundation administers more than 50 scholarship funds that awarded more than $500,000 in 2017.

We have the expertise to help you set up a scholarship fund for a customized purpose.  If you are interested in establishing a scholarship fund, please contact Jenna Cuilla at (518) 446-9638 or to discuss the possibilities.
