The Radnor High School Scholarship Fund employs a variety of direct appeals to help generate the revenue necessary to sustain its mission to provide financial assistance to deserving Radnor graduates. Our mission has grown as more students seek to take advantage of our aid and as our awards increase to reflect the continually rising costs of secondary education.
The direct appeals include: a Radnor Community Campaign; a Corporate Appeal and an Alumni solicitation.
Radnor Community Campaign
For the Community Campaign, households in the township receive a brochure describing The Fund and, in many cases, a personal note from one of The Fund’s Board members. This appeal is held annually in the fall and is a significant contributor to the annual income of The Fund with many repeat donors.
The Corporate Appeal reaches out to local and regional businesses to solicit funds. In addition, many businesses donate to specific events, such as the fireworks; others endow scholarships in their name.
Our alumni outreach has taken several forms including a mass mailing to some 12,000 alumni. In addition, specific classes having reunions are contacted and urged to contribute funds in the name of their class; seven classes have, at times, sponsored scholarships of this sort.
