First Step Campaign

 Providing The First Step

Investing in the Future

The Trust began a 5 year campaign in the summer of 2013 to raise $1 million. The goal was to place $500,000 toward scholarships ($100,000 annually) and another $500,000 into building the assets of the Trust. The “First Step” campaign awards  post-secondary career tech and vocational scholarships to area graduating seniors. This year, 2017, the Trust board allocated $66,000 to 44 scholarship recipients that were recognized at a reception in May.

“Success in the New Economy” is a short video from Brian Y. Marsh to help people understand the need for preparation today for tomorrow’s labor market realities and supports our goal with the “First Step Campaign”. Here is the link to “Success in the New Economy”.
