The primary purpose of the Foundation is to receive, acquire, manage, administer and expend property and funds for scholarships and other forms of educational assistance to children of deceased or disabled Society members.
Scholarships were first awarded in 1967. Since that time the Scholarship Foundation has granted over 1.6 million dollars in educational assistance to more than 140 students. Approximately 12 students per year are expected to attend school with Society assistance. The Scholarship Foundation is solely supported by individual contributions. For every dollar contributed to the Foundation, more than ninety-five cents goes directly to covering the educational expenses of the students. A contribution to the Scholarship Foundation is the ideal way to commemorate a Society member while helping support the children of deceased and disabled members.
The Foundation’s Tax Identification Number is 95-2479396 and contributions and bequests are considered charitable donations. Contributions can be mailed to:
