We recently wrapped up the work of our scholarship program for this year. It was great to get our feet wet with this program, and as a relatively newly formed organization we are excited to learn from our initial effort and look for ways to improve to help many more students in our region that need the extra financial assistance as they move from high school to college. We greatly appreciate all the support and donations we received, and the sponsorship of several area businesses.
However, now we begin the process of looking toward next year and setting fundraising goals for this project. Every donation counts, from $10 on up. As you read this, consider making an online donation today using the Donate button on the right side of this page or at the top of our home page. 100% of your donation to this program goes into the program. Our goal for next year is $5,000 to help area students. We do our best to make sure that donations stay as close to the donor as possible. For example, if you are from Wise County, VA we will do our best to make sure that the donation goes to a student from your county. It is important that we get our fundraising effort off to a good start.
You can also mail a check (if you choose not to donate here on the website) by making checks payable to Appalachian Scholarship Fund. Thank you!
