Choose How Your Donation Helps
- Scholarship Fund
The scholarship fund is for graduating Rushford-Peterson seniors. Our goal is to award at least 10% of the graduating class with a $500 scholarship. In 2019 we awarded 16 scholarships – 11 college and 5 trade focused scholarships – to about 30% of the graduating class.
- Angel Fund
The Angel Fund helps financially disadvantaged students with needs related to their education such as field trips, drivers education, and technology/equipment.
- Endowment Fund
An endowment fund was established in 2017. The goal is to grow the fund until it can sustain the annual scholarship awards. Donate to the endowment fund to put your donations to work for generations to come.
School Enhancement Fund
- Larger designated donations for facilities and classroom supplies are welcomed by the foundation, such as the Evenson bleacher donation ($31,500) and the Woxland music program donation ($30,000). Download this form for more details.
