Helping people and organizations make a difference to the causes they care most about is what we do. We can assist you in finding the right charitable fund to meet your charitable-giving plans and that works within your family’s financial- or estate-planning needs.
You may choose to encourage education by providing scholarships, based upon academic interest or other criteria, to deserving students. You also may select the guidelines for candidate selection, requirements and award use. Many such funds utilize the Foundation's experience and capable staff support to help administer and award the scholarship.
Students and their parents also can search for available Dayton Foundation scholarships through ScholarshipCONNECT, our online scholarship directory.
More information about establishing a scholarship fund is available in our brochure Scholarship Funds.
