The Clay-Union Foundation would like to invite you to donate to support their scholarship and community fund. Scholarships are available to seniors from EP-J and Vermillion high school, and more schools will be added as the funds grow. Students have received the scholarship in both schools and this year we had 27 applications, so there is great interest. We hope to involve more local businesses , individuals and organizations in Vermillion, as we have only received $125 this year, and we want to continue the award in towns where we have great support. Businesses, individual donors and organizations are strongly encouraged to donate, as we can only expand our donations if the funds are allowed to grow.

Area farm operators are able to donate corn or soybeans before it’s sold, and there is no federal tax on the donation. Just contact Nathan at Southeast farmers, Pat at Farmer’s Coop in Akron, or Kevin at Ag Opportunities, and they will send the donation to us. All investments are professionally managed by the SD Community Foundation in Pierre, SD so the funds will be there for generations of youth.  The website is www.clay-unionfoundation.org  .  Clicking on the donate button will give several easy options for being a sponsor, from a small monthly electronic debit, to setting up a charter membership. Charter memberships are only $500, and are able to be made over 2 years.  As the funds grow we plan to help local organizations, and add more schools to our scholarship  program.   All donations are fully tax deductible and help our student now, and in the future. Call John Gille at 605-421-5050 or email jgillerrsd60@yahoo.com  to find out more, or to set up a fundraising event. Thank you.
