Establishing a Scholarship

Interested in starting a scholarship fund at Indian Hills? We offer a variety of options for named scholarships:

  • A minimum gift of $600 can be donated to fund an annual scholarship.
  • A minimum initial gift of $12,000 is needed to establish a perpetual (endowed) scholarship.
  • You can choose to include the IHCC Foundation in your will or list the Foundation as a full or partial beneficiary on a life insurance policy or a retirement account.
  • The value of your gift can be increased if your employer has a matching gift program — check with your employer’s personnel office.
