Hope you're all doing well as we transition another winter season!

 

Our next event!
 

In May, we will be awarding three Class of '62 Scholarships totaling $2,000 to three deserving students.  However, we need your help!
 

  • To have attended Bremen’s Senior Honors Night is to fully appreciate how successful our scholarship program has been.
 
  • Since 2015, we have collected $5,850 in contributions and awarded $3,200 in scholarships: 
     

$1,200 in 2016

$2,000 in 2017
 

  • In 2018, we will, again, award $2,000, leaving a carry-forward balance of $650 for 2019.
     
  • Seventeen (17) out of 207 active classmates have generously contributed to the fund in 2016 and 2017.  Thank you!

  • The average contribution was $188, with contributions ranging from $25 to $500.
 
  • We currently have eight (8) “sustaining contributors" who want to see this program continue.
     

How much one contributes or whether or not one is a sustaining donor is not important. Everyone’s contribution counts and it can make a difference!  


Plus, we realize and respect that everyone has their own personal needs and priorities. 

 

So we asked ourselves: 


How can we keep this program going?  Here's our idea...

 

The "Forty Challenge"

 

  • With our eight (8) sustaining donors we can easily hit 50% of our annual goal of $2,000. 
     
  • Therefore, we would like to ask 40  additional classmates to reach into their “hearts & purses” to contribute $25 each year to the scholarship fund.  

 

If we can reach“The Forty Challenge” goal, we can sustain this program for many years to come.  

     

    If you can find it in your heart to contribute $25 (or more) each year, now is the time to act!  

     

    • Checks should be made out to “Richard Kieffer" and mailed to 753 Quail Run Inverness, IL 60067-4776” with the memo line of the check reading “Class of ’62 Scholarship Fund”.
      
    • Checks will be endorsed by Rich as “FOR DEPOSIT ONLY” and will be deposited in the Class of ’62 Scholarship Fund savings account.  A record of the deposit will be sent to Denny Day.
       
    • You will receive written confirmation of your payment.
