The Community Foundation strongly believes that scholarships have a tremendous impact on the students who receive them and can change the course of a young life. We encourage you to search our extensive database at FoxRiverScholarshipCenter.org.

Individuals and families often establish scholarship funds to:
  • Memorialize a loved one, allowing that person's legacy to live on;
  • Honor a family member's accomplishments or celebrate a lifetime of achievement.

Businesses often establish scholarship funds to:
  • Encourage students to pursue a related field of study, such as business, education, science, technology, medicine, law etc.;
  • Honor the achievements of a founder, retiring executive or long-time employee.

Our staff will meet confidentially with you, your family, organization or company to help you set up your scholarship fund.
