Students who received Moraine Park Foundation scholarships were given the opportunity to meet and thank their donors at a scholarship luncheon held at Park Terrace Restaurant on the Fond du Lac campus on Tuesday, October 4. The annual event, held at all three campuses, allows donors to connect with students who are benefiting from their generous gifts and hear how the scholarships are making a difference in their lives.
Scholarship donors believe in the power of education to transform lives, families, and communities. Of note, 56% of Moraine Park’s financial aid applicants have a family income of less than $40,000, while 31% have a family income of less than $20,000. Scholarship gifts to the Moraine Park Foundation help make education more affordable for hundreds of students. Soon these students will bring their skills and talents to the local workforce helping companies grow and communities thrive.
This year the Foundation awarded more than $169,000 to 180 deserving students.
You can make a difference, too. A named scholarship can be created with a gift of $500 and an endowed scholarship with a gift of $10,000.
