Alumni Association Scholarship Endowment Fund Closer to $100,000 Goal

The Benson High School Alumni Association Scholarship Endowment Fund is picking up steam as the association seeks to raise $100,000 to create a sustaining resource for scholarships to Benson High students. More than $60,000 has been given through the present.

Alumni scholarships have been awarded annually to students who are in the upper 50 percent of the class, have contributed to the school and community by participating in activities but, because of financial need, might not otherwise seek post-secondary education. Funding scholarships has been a goal of the Benson High School Alumni Association since its incorporation in 1987.

The Alumni¬†Scholarship Endowment is separate from Benson High’s scholarship program and is a way to honor the intentions of the Alumni Association founders. This fund will be administered by the Omaha Schools Foundation at no cost to the Alumni Association.¬† The Foundation has 501 (c) (3) tax status.

Donations can be sent to Benson High Alumni Scholarship Endowment, (Acct # 157), Omaha Schools Foundation, 3861 Farnam St, Omaha, NE 68131.
