arnold school foundation
The Arnold Public School Foundation was formed in 1995 to provide funds for education, including funds for scholarships. The foundation has a six-member Board of Trustees to oversee the investment and disbursement of funds. Funds received by the foundation will be used for scholarships or to enhance the educational system of Arnold Public Schools, which is North Centrally Accredited.
Persons interested in making a donation should contact Arnold Public Schools or visit with his or her personal attorney, accountant, life insurance representative, or banker. Donors will receive an acknowledgement and be recognized on the Foundation Plaque of Honor as follows:
Donor = $500-$999 gift
Friend = $1,000-$2,999 gift
Patron = $3,000-$4,999 gift
Benefactor = $5,000 and up gift
In addition to cash donations, the foundation encourages bequests in wills, memorials, establishment of trusts, assignment of insurance proceeds, donation of real estate, stocks, and collectibles. The Arnold Public School Foundation is a public charity, so donors may receive a tax advantage for donations.
In 2011, two $1,500 scholarships were given to Arnold Public School graduating seniors, one for a four-year college/university student and one for a vocational/technical student.
Scholarship applications for 2012 are due March 26, 2012.
