Dayton Foundation Connects Local Scholarship Recipients and Donors at First Annual Scholarship Luncheon

On Thursday, July 30, The Dayton Foundation held its inaugural ScholarshipCONNECT Luncheon at the Dayton Racquet Club, bringing together more than 100 Dayton Foundation scholarship fund donors and their scholarship recipients for a celebration and appreciation ceremony.

The event gave donors an opportunity to learn more about the difference they are making in the lives of local students. Additionally, scholarship recipients expressed their gratitude and shared their plans for the future, thanks in part to the donors’ awards.

“Over the past ten years, more than $13 million has been awarded from Dayton Foundation scholarship funds to help nearly 11,000 students go to college,” said Michael M. Parks, president of The Dayton Foundation. “We are so grateful for the visionary leadership of our donors and the important work that is happening through their funds to assist future leaders in obtaining an education.”

The scholarship application process for the 2016-2017 academic year will be open starting December 15, 2015. For information about how to apply for a Dayton Foundation scholarship or to access other scholarship opportunities, visit ScholarshipCONNECT.
