It is very exciting that the end of the road is in sight! For others, nevertheless, it is just the beginning. We know how hard it can be. Our efforts to support our class scholarship today can make a difference for someone later. Our gifts will help establish the Class of 2021 Endowed Scholarship. Our gifts, initially and over time, result in the Class of 2021 Scholarship which establishes a special place for us in the history of the college. It is our legacy.
Making a pledge of $150 ($30/ year for 5 years) will establish our class scholarship fund. It is that simple and an easy way to get the fund started without hurting our still somewhat empty wallets. Our generosity ($20,000 in gifts endows a scholarship) in the upcoming years will ultimately allow SCO to provide an annual, $1,000 scholarship to a deserving student. Our class will join the legacy of giving and join in creating a new scholarship that will make it easier for those who will follow in our footsteps.
If you think that this small gift won’t make a difference, think again. Since 1985, SCO has been able to create over 140 scholarship funds through the generosity of our alumni. Currently, over 35% of SCO students receive some type of endowed scholarship or award. Those gifts have been a culmination of small donations that, one by one, have made SCO very successful in recruiting individuals like us as students. As each class reaches its goal of establishing an endowed scholarship, great numbers of students will benefit.
Your gift(s) are tax-deductible and not one penny of your gift is used for operating the college. 100% of your gift goes to its intended purpose!
