The Ouimet Fund Endowed Scholarship Program has become our cornerstone for growth. Endowed scholarships are permanently restricted funds that are invested to ensure the existence of the scholarship in perpetuity. The program offers the donor the ability to tailor their gift and the resulting named award to suit their own philanthropic goals.
A unique quality of the Ouimet Fund Endowed Scholarship Program is that it permanently links the donor, honoree or sponsoring organization with golf, Francis Ouimet, youth and education. Every year, we are thrilled to communicate with the donors and/or honorees to let them know about the student(s) they are helping and what makes him or her a worthy recipient. We often hear of the satisfaction they feel knowing they’ve made an additional difference in the life of a young student. The recipients of the awards often send letters of gratitude to their benefactors letting them know the importance of their incredible support.
Endowed awards can be funded in a number of ways and over the course of up to five years. The common thread among the existing endowed awards is that the contributions come from individuals, families or special groups who wish to honor a deep commitment and connection to young people, education, the game of golf and Francis Ouimet.
