2014 Scholarship Application


Genoa Area Local Schools

Scholarship Foundation, Inc.

Who Are We?

The Genoa Area Local Schools Scholarship Foundation, Inc. offers scholarships to students of the Genoa Area Local Schools.  This Foundation was organized by a local group of interested citizens on January 7, 1991, and has held a tax-free status with the IRS since March 2, 1994.

In 2013 a total of 58 scholarships were awarded to thirty-three (33) seniors through the Foundation.  There are currently thirty-three (33) individual scholarship funds that offered forty-seven (47) scholarships in 2013. Eleven (11) additional scholarships were given by various local businesses and organizations in conjunction with the Foundation.  In addition, one four-year renewable scholarship first awarded in 2004 (The Dehn Sisters Memorial Scholarship Trust) was awarded.  Over the past five years, the Foundation has distributed over 275 scholarships. The various scholarship funds in the Foundation total over $570,000 and continue to grow.

These scholarships are presented annually at the high school’s Honors Award Program in May.

Where Do the Funds Come From?
Contributions to the various scholarship funds can be made through gifts, honorariums, memorials, wills, etc. Gifts of money or stock may be designated to create a new scholarship or to the principal of an existing scholarship fund. Many graduating classes, along with the alumni reunions, have considered these an important endeavor and have given remaining monies to a scholarship fund.

How Does It Work?


Ø  Contributor sends contribution (see Contribution Form on reverse side).
Ø  Foundation sends confirmation letter to contributor for tax purposes (please consult your tax advisor for any tax related issues).
Ø  Gift of $100 or more (for an individual/couple) or $500 or more (for an organization/corporation) may be listed on a plaque at the auditorium entrance in high school.
Ø  All fund balances continue to grow.  As funds mature they could provide more than one scholarship.
Ø  Foundation policy is to give 80% of the annual interest to selected students for scholarships (remaining 20% reinvested in fund balances).
Ø  Each individual scholarship fund has a documented agreement including a section on how the scholarship winners are to be chosen.
Ø  Employer Matching Funds Program is available based on employer’s participation.
Ø  If you would like additional information, please contact the school office at 419-855-7741 or a Trustee.
Ø  Students interested in information on scholarships offered through this program should contact their school counselor.
