There is no set range; rather, the dollar amount of each scholarship depends on the fund making the scholarship, the purpose of the scholarship, and the timeframe for results to be achieved.
Decision-makers depend on the fund from which the scholarship is made. For example, scholarship-making decisions about dollars flowing from our community fund are made by our board of directors, while legacy funds established by a family are made by family members and the people they appoint.
Scholarship making effectiveness is important across the board, and we encourage donors to adopt evaluation procedures that best align with achieving their philanthropic goals. Evaluation practices are determined by the individuals, families, and boards of directors who oversee each scholarship-making fund.
Although the majority of scholarships from funds are made to schools in our region, the geographic reach of a particular scholarship depends on the philanthropic goals and intentions of the donors who established the fund.
