Logo - 10-2015WEBOur┬ácommunity donated nearly $5,000 to the Solanco Education Foundation through the recent Extraordinary Give! “The Solanco Education Foundation greatly appreciates the generous donations and support,” foundation vice president Susan Broomell said. “These important gifts will help establish a new scholarship fund that will focus on first-generation college students who are the first in their family to attend post-secondary education.”

In addition, the Solanco Education Foundation expresses its appreciation to Andrew Morgan and The Daily Grind in Quarryville for hosting an online “Giving Station” for the Solanco Education Foundation, to Brett Rush and Lindsay Graham for providing live music at the giving station, and to the Solanco Football Boosters who donated Solanco football merchandise used as raffle prizes at the giving station.

During the past 12 years, the Solanco Education Foundation has awarded more than $300,000 in college scholarships to Solanco students, and academic venture grants to Solanco teachers, made possible in part by the same generosity and support from local residents that were demonstrated during the Extraordinary Give.
