Companies can contribute to the Thomas R. and Laura Ridge Scholarship Fund to ensure the continuation and growth of the scholarship. By building an endowment, Ridge Scholarships can be given in perpetuity. Association members and contributors are asked to encourage employees and/or the children of employees to apply for the scholarship awards.
To make a contribution to the Ridge Fund, send your check to:
Ridge Scholarship Fund P.O. Box 870 Camp Hill, PA 17001-0870
Create an IRS-Approved Scholarship for Your Company
Member companies wishing to give scholarship grants to their own employees can do so through the PFMA Education Trust. By making a tax-deductible gift to the trust and designating that the funds be used to provide scholarships to your own employees or their children, the Education Trust serves as a vehicle for making tax-free scholarship awards. When PFMA convenes its Ridge Scholarship judging panel each April, an independent judging panel selects scholarship recipients for your company.
Awards will be tax-free to scholarship winners and contributions to the fund are tax deductible for the sponsoring company. For information on creating an IRS-approved Scholarship Program for your company, contact PFMA at (800) 543-8207 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
