SaddleBrooke Community Outreach Scholarship Endowment Program
Each year SBCO applies a rigorous evaluation process to select students to receive scholarships of $3,000 per year for four-year degrees and $1,500 per year for two-year programs. SBCO established a Scholarship Endowment Fund Program to increase the funding available for these scholarships. Only the interest earned on donations is used to fund local scholarships. This allows donors to provide scholarship assistance to local students for generations to come.
Donations to the Scholarship Fund can be made through estate plans or trusts, by donating a portion of an IRA retirement account, or by donating cash. Gifts of property such as real estate or cars is another option. The minimum donation is $5,000.

It's been 5 months since our meetings have stopped and we know how hard it must be for those trying to protect themselves and their loved ones from the Coronavirus-19. The care-givers of Alzheimer's, MS, Dementia, Stroke, ALS, Parkinson's, PDP, many other neurological diseases have been witness to services withdrawn, suspended, gone from our sources of care.
We want to help, but not knowing when meetings will begin once more, to offer some sources that can be reached, persons to call for books, articles, questions and to have an ear in this most difficult period.
Good news is meant to be shared . Help Senior Village spread the word about our member services: transportation for errands and appointments, fix-its in your home and yard, fun social activities. We will come to your club meeting or a home gathering to explain how Village volunteers are helping our 835+ SaddleBrooke members live more independently in their homes. Call 520-314-1042 for information.
