Creating an Endowed Fund
When you establish an endowment fund, you’re creating a legacy by awarding an ongoing scholarship in your name to a deserving student. Plus, you’ll receive a tax deduction since all donations to the Education Foundation are a charitable contribution.
The below chart indicates the scholarship amount your investment generates.
For more information on setting up an Endowed Scholarship Fund, please contact Connie Fedor, Executive Director WRA Education Foundation at 800-589-3211.

Absolutely! Contributions can be made each year until you have established the minimum endowed fund of $10,000. Or if you’d like to increase your current endowment fund, you can make additional contributions which would increase your scholarship awarded.
Donor's may request the recipient be a student from a specific part of the state or attend a specific college. If there is no qualified applicant that meets the donor's desired criteria, however, the scholarship will be awarded to a qualified student from another area.
