Raising money for scholarships is one of the primary purposes of our organization!
Funding for scholarships is from fundraising, contributions from members, donations in memory of departed educators, interest on investments, and significant income from Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine and Pharmacy for our proctor services.
You can contribute to the endowment in a number of ways. Members often send additional money when they make luncheon reservations or contribute if they are unable to attend a PCRTA meeting. Memorials to deceased members provide scholarship funds. When the memorials equal the amount of a scholarship, the scholarship is presented in the name of the deceased. Leaving a portion of an estate through a will or naming PCRTA as a life insurance beneficiary can provide long-lasting memorial scholarships.
PCRTA members should share their thoughts and wishes with their family and consider including the PCRTA scholarship endowment in their plans.
