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 2018 a total of 71 scholarships were awarded to 45 seniors through the Foundation.  There are currently 39 individual scholarship funds that offered 56 scholarships in 2018. A total of 15 additional scholarships were given by various individuals, businesses and organizations in conjunction with the Foundation.  Over the past five years, the Foundation has distributed more than 300 scholarships to deserving seniors. The various scholarship funds in the Foundation total over $834,000 in assets to assist our students in furthering their education.  The Foundation’s growth continues!!!!!  

 

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

      

 

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 below).

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 Foundation at ScholarshipFoundation@genoaschools.com; call 419-855-7741, Extension 21100; or contact a Trustee.

Ø     Students interested in information on scholarships offered through this program should contact their school counselor.

 

No gift is too small!
