We are very excited about our foundry414 Scholarship Fund. Our focus is to help college bound students who have limited financial resources and are first generation college students from their family. We see this as a tangible way our church can get involved in empowering young adults with education and tools to change their course of life.
We were originally inspired to start this scholarship fund when we read this story from the WI Journal highlighting one of our former childcare workers at foundry414. We have reconnected with Alondra after seeing this article and she has inspired us to take notice of youth in our community who could use some mentoring, support and resources. Our plan is to raise funds to start a pilot scholarship fund for 2017-2018 school year with the hopes that it is something we can renew future years as an ongoing way to invest in our community.
