Fund minimum: $50,000
A college education is more important than ever in today’s economy, and more expensive than ever.
You can support a college education for deserving young people or enterprising adults with an Individual Scholarship Fund at the Foundation. Your fund can be listed in your name or you can choose to name it after a family member to memorialize his or her commitment to education.
With an Individual Scholarship Fund you can support the Foundation’s College Scholarship Program or award separate scholarships. Either way, you can specify selection criteria for the type of students you’d like to support. Our knowledgeable staff can help you fine-tune your support to meet your charitable goals.
You, or other fund representatives, may also participate in the Hartford Foundation board-approved selection process. The Foundation handles all scholarship marketing, distributions and renewals.
If $50,000 is more of a commitment than you can make now, you can give any amount to the Hartford Foundation's General Scholarship Endowment Fund. A gift of $10,000 allows you to name an annual scholarship award from General Scholarship Endowment Fund.
