The Firelands Endowment Trustees have announced that scholarships are available for the Class of 2021!
The Firelands Endowment Fund is supported by the Community Foundation of Lorain County. The Community Foundation is a non-profit organization that began in 1980 and is dedicated to making all of Lorain County a better place to live and work. The Foundation is governed by a 20 member Board of Directors who work with investment managers that pool all assets to increase investment diversification, thereby reducing costs.
Locally, we have Endowment Trustee’s who oversee the accounts managed for The Firelands Local School Districts. These dedicated individuals are able to award as much as 5.5% of the average market value of each account, annually. Earnings are reinvested into the principal to keep the funds growing for future needs. The Firelands Endowment Committee has announced that over $24,000 will be awarded this year!
