MAKE NO SMALL PLANS, DREAM NO SMALL DREAMS
The Lampeter-Strasburg Education Foundation was established in 1994. It is a non-profit organization designed to exclusively provide assistance for L-S graduates who want to continue their learning.
In 1994 a committee of volunteers met to establish an organization which would have one goal - to help graduates from L-S to achieve their dreams of a higher education. That is when the Lampeter-Strasburg Education Foundation was born. The committee reached out to the community and over $126,000 was raised initially to be granted as low - interest loans and scholarships to our graduates.
ContributorsYou may contribute in three ways:
Loan program - All contributions are welcome and will help to fund low-interest loans to Lampeter-Strasburg students seeking higher education. Awarded loans are $2,500 per year for up to four years of education.
Scholarships - All contributions are welcome as the Foundation looks to the future to create additional scholarships for Lampeter-Strasburg students. Guidelines would be set up by the Foundation.
Endowed Scholarships - Endowment scholarships may be set up as follows (if interest rates return to an average of 4%):
- A pledge of $12,500 will support a $500 annual scholarship
- A pledge of $25,000 will support a $1,000 annual scholarship
Note: If desired, your commitment for an endowment scholarship may be satisfied over a pre-determined payment schedule (not to exceed four years). L-SEF would like to meet with you to address any necessary paperwork and design a scholarship befitting your investment. Our Foundation will work with you to plan the details of your contribution and ensure that your needs are met.
