Scholarships Matching Fund

E-mail Print PDF

You did it! 

Thanks to your generous donations to our scholarships fund during our 2014 matching fund campaign, we have received a whopping $20,445 to benefit students in 10 neighboring communities.
To recap: Following the visit earlier in the year by Lynn Haanen, the original coordinator for the Mountain School, and Bob Hilliard, we received an offer of up to $10,000 to match any contributions we received this year from past-students or their friends or families.
And even more fantastic, the donor has offered to repeat the deal next year!
The intention behind this gift is to help provide a funding breathing space for us to strengthen our fund-raising for this important program (now in its 10th year and facing ever-increasing demand and of continual growing significance).
The scholarship program has benefited 100-120 students a year in the past, and, with your help, we would like to see it grow to that former strength. In 2014 funds were available to support only 78 students. This year the scholarships committee approved 82 scholarships out of 83 applications, with a budget of $17,078 for the school year.
Thanks to each of you for your support.
