We Now Have a Scholarship Fund!Do you know a high school senior who is pursuing a degree in an information and communication discipline? This might be graphic design, broadcasting, video production, photography, news media, mass communication studies, or journalism. Please Consider Donating to Our Scholarship Fund! Do you remember when you were in college? If you didn’t have parents who helped, and had to work your way through, then you’ll understand how much it means. Too many students are dropping out of college, racking up debts, and leaving this country with too few people prepared to fill the jobs of the future. As little as $10 would help a deserving student get through those tough college years. If many people donate in small amounts, it could add up to a big boost for one student, or maybe even several students. The more we raise, the more scholarships we’ll be able to give out! If you feel that this is a good cause, then please open your heart (and your pocketbook) to help make a student’s dream come true.
Donations to the fund are tax deductible through the High Desert Community Foundation.The High Desert Community Foundation, is your community foundation! It is part of the fastest growing sectors of philanthropy in the United States today. It builds and strengthens the High Desert and Mountain communities by making it possible for a wide range of donors to create affiliate funds to meet critical community needs. Many of these funds award scholarships to students pursuing a variety of disciplines and careers. Each scholarship has it’s own application process and not all students must have perfect grades. Reviewers who selection the recipients take in many factors, such as community service experience, talents, or financial need and enter those into the final equation. Any high school student moving on to college is welcome to look over the scholarship pool offered, and submit their application. You can go the website: www.HDCfoundation.org. Click on the Scholarthips button. You’ll find a list of the different scholarships. Make a PayPal donation. Or, mail a check to HDCF, with “Siverts Publishing” in the memo section. Mail to HDCF, P.O.
