Elementary School PTO
its early days, the Foundation was trying to define itself, in part, as an
umbrella organization for community groups seeking to establish a legacy of
endowed scholarships. The Friendship Elementary School PTO stepped forward as a
leader in this effort by creating a perpetual funding vehicle for one of its
awards, the first Foundation supporting organization to do so.
Southern Elementary School PTO
the Foundation sought to create momentum for its organizational endowment
initiative, it turned to the Southern Elementary School PTO. Acceptance was
immediate and enthusiastic – so much so that the PTO’s funding plan was
completed a year ahead of schedule and a second program was endowed shortly
after, guaranteeing the organization’s entire future scholarship commitment.
Southern York County Education Association
character of Southern York County School District has long been defined by the professional
staff’s commitment to district mission. The SYCEA’s leadership in support of
the Foundation’s scholarship program is only one demonstration of that
commitment. By creating a perpetual endowment, the association has ensured that
a financial legacy will endure in the SYCEA name, one that will assist
deserving students in their pursuit of higher education.
Women’s Club of Glen Rock
history of the school district’s scholarship program – well before the
Foundation’s existence – begins with the Women’s Club of Glen Rock, its
scholarship being one of the district’s very first. When the Foundation began,
the club quickly joined the effort by continuing scholarship support as a focus
of its fund raising efforts. It recently ensured annual future funding by
committing most of its treasury to creating a perpetual endowment.
