Fox Valley Earth Day Scholarship Endowment Fund

Established 1990

fox_valley_earth_day.jpgThis fund was created in 1990 to receive and distribute charitable contributions for the benefit of the Fox Valley Area’s celebration of Earth Day 1990.

The event was held on April 22, 1990 to coincide with the worldwide observance of Earth Day.

In 1993, the balance remaining in the fund and the addition of subsequent donations were used to establish an endowed scholarship for students enrolling in programs related to environmental fields of study.

The Earth Day Scholarship Fund serves as a reminder that the survival of our world is dependent upon attitudes and lifestyles which are ecologically sensitive and compassionate.
