Starting a named scholarship fund can be a great way to recognize a positive influence in your life or honor the legacy of a loved one.

Named scholarship funds can be started at the KCC Foundation starting with a minimum gift amount of $1,000. Scholarships can be tailored to recipients based on geographic area, program of study, high school, GPA or any number of qualifying criteria.

Foundation staff can also set up an online donation page so that others can contribute via credit or debit card (donors can also mail in checks).

Interested individuals should contact the KCC Foundation at 269-965-4161 or to begin the process.
