Make a Financial gift

Supporting Students in Need

Individual Contributions

Individuals who contribute to CollegeReady are invited to various special events, fundraising activities, and receive special recognition. In fact, if a donor’s gift is over $1,000, a new scholarship will be created and named by that donor! Individual donors also receive a copy of our newsletter.

Corporate Sponsors

Businesses and other community organizations contribute to annual funding and are invited to participate in other fundraising activities throughout the year. Sponsors receive recognition through named scholarships, event sponsorship, and publicity associated with our special events.

Scholarships for Perpetuity

For questions or interest in creating a scholarship for perpetuity, please contact Executive Director Brent Roubal.

Memorials and Trusts

Many of our donors wish to leave a lasting legacy through bequests, memorials, and trusts. Such endowed contributions provide continuous financial assistance to students and offer ongoing reverence to the contributor. Many bequests and trusts are fully administered by CollegeReady, while others are endowed through annual contributions.

Special Events

Each year, CollegeReady hosts special events with the goal of raising funds, recognizing special individuals, promoting educational opportunities, and celebrating the organization’s noteworthy accomplishments. During our annual Lamp of Knowledge Celebration, our scholarship recipients proudly accept their awards in front of friends, family, donors, and community members. Our volunteers assist staff by helping to organize and implement this very special dinner and ceremony.
