Become a Scholarship Donor

Since 1981, the Germantown Community  Scholarship Fund has assisted deserving students in pursuing their educational goals. This has been made possible through the generosity of many area businesses, organizations and citizens who value this local investment program. To ensure that area students continue to be rewarded for their achievements, and to financially assist them in pursuing higher education, we need your help.

Named Scholarships

The Fund is looking to our community organization and business partners for financial assistance. There are many benefits to you for supporting the Germantown Community Scholarship Fund:

  • Your organization can design, name and present a scholarship to a qualified recipient. A donation of $1,000 or more can create an earmarked scholarship from your organization.
  • Your organization can also help determine the selection criteria for which a scholarship is awarded and can include items that are meaningful to your organization such as the applicant must be attending a UW system school or pursuing a degree in a particular field.
  • Your donation is tax deductible. The Germantown Community Scholarship Fund, Inc. is a tax-exempt organization under Section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Your investment in our youth makes a difference. Help local students continue their education at a college, university or vocational / technical school so that they can return to the Germantown community as an energetic, educated adult workforce.
