The RFSA Endowed Scholarship has helped several deserving students. The is an endowed scholarship but we want to continue developing funds to increase the amount we are able to provide the scholarship recipient. We are seeking donors who would be designated as “Sustaining Members” through a pledge of $100 annually for five years. Please consider becoming a sustaining member of the scholarship fund.
