Since 2011, APCF has partnered with donors such as local companies and family foundations to offer scholarship programs to financially assist students in their pursuit of higher education. Setting up a scholarship fund is another creative option for your Donor-Advised Fund. APCF staff work closely with donors to determine criteria for the scholarship programs, including desired preferences such as geographical area, level of community involvement, experiences with leadership, choice of schools, academic record, and/or financial need.
For more information or to set up a Scholarship Fund, please contact: Chun-Yen Chen at (213) 624-6400ext. 2 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
APCF is excited to partner with local donors to offer scholarship programs annually to financially assist students in their pursuit of higher education. Through a competitive process, scholarship recipients are selected by a review committee based on academic merits, community involvement, leadership skills as well as recommendation from a mentor. Many of our scholarship programs are intended to support low-income youth, and several programs encourage students to study locally at a community college or state university.
