Berks County Community Foundation works with Reading School District Students

Establishing a scholarship fund through the Community Foundation offers many advantages to the donor. For example, the Community Foundation has a scholarship administrator on staff who manages the scholarship or award application process, provides all check-writing services, and professionally acknowledges gifts whenever donations are made to the fund. In some cases, scholarship funds held at the Community Foundation are eligible for matching grants through our association with the Citizens Scholarship Foundation of America and PHEAA’s PATH program.
