Recipient 2014 – 2015

The Susan Fund has grown dramatically since its inception in 1982 in both the number of grants and the total amount bestowed. To date we have distributed about $1,480,000 in scholarship money. In 2015 a total of $65,500 was awarded to twenty-five very deserving students.

The Susan Fund depends primarily upon individual, corporate and service group contributions to accomplish its objectives. Various fund-raising activities have included dinner dances, auctions and a concert by one of Susan’s classmates. Expenses for the fund are minimal and the needs of the organization are met through a joint volunteer effort. The Susan Fund has a 501(c)(3) federal tax status and donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
