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. For more information about the Community Outreach Scholarship Endowment Program, visit community-outreach.org or contact Ron Andrea at 520-904-4831 or WhatsNewRon@gmail.com.

Everyone stay safe, well, know there is help, you just have to ask .
