Scholarship Fund Advisor FAQs

How do I. . .

Make a distribution?

Those with scholarship funds administered through the CFFRV Scholarship Program do not make distributions separate from the scholarship award agreed upon in their fund terms.

Those with scholarship funds administered by a committee outside of the CFFRV Scholarship Program should contact our Scholarship Team at or 630-896-7800 to discuss the distribution process.

Tell others about my fund?

For those with scholarship funds who wish to promote said funds, it is important to remember that students cannot apply to any one individual scholarship. Rather, when they apply to the CFFRV Scholarship Program, they are potentially considered for many scholarships within the program. Please direct anyone interested in donating to your fund or applying for the scholarship to our website.  We always welcome Fund Advisors’ enthusiasm in promoting their fund as part of the larger program! For any other scholarship fund-related questions, please contact our Scholarship Team at or 630-896-7800.  

Know when someone has been awarded a scholarship from my fund?

Please contact our Scholarship Team at or 630-896-7800.

…you can always start small, even $25 can make a difference. Remember we can’t take our money with us. Even if it’s just your gift of time. Volunteer and get involved.

Thank you very much for supporting my college education for these four years. I will never be able to repay you for the opportunity that this scholarship has given to me.

Julia H.

[Renewing Scholarship Recipient] Graduate of Hinkley-Big Rock High School

As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I was worried about how I was going to pay for books and supplies. This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies instead of worrying about how to afford college. I am working to not only create opportunities for myself but to motivate future generations. Thank you so much for helping me along this journey!

We chose the Community Foundation because of its reputation. It’s well known, established and we can trust them to do the job for us.

A community foundation is a donor-driven organization that helps donors custom-design funds that reflect their charitable interests. Through the years, grants from these funds have made a significant impact on our local communities.
