2022 MLK Scholarships Milwaukee Recipients
Pictures from our All-A-Thon
Over the first 45 years of this organization fund raising started from scratch (zero) each year. We are excited to share that going forward things are different. An endowment has been established at Greater Milwaukee Foundation and it currently has $50,000. We are looking to add to that.
WE HAVE AN ENDOWMENT!!
Your gift to the endowment is a “forever gift.” What does that mean? As an illustration, your gift of $100 to the endowment will provide something on the order of (exact amounts depend on investment results):
$5 for scholarships next year!
$5 for scholarhips the following year!
$5 for scholarships for the next 100 years!
“Sustainable” is a very popular word these days. Well it applies here. Your gift to the endowment will help make sure that this movement, MLK Scholarships Milwaukee, never ends. It will help us to increase the number and amount of our scholarships over time.
If you would like to help, you can go to “Use your credit card.” You can add your name to the list of those who have already helped us in this quest for sustainable support for MLKScholarshipsMilwaukee.
