Establishing a Scholarship

Funding a Scholarship Program

Bais Chaya Mushka School for Girls accepts scholarship contributions in any amount.

Bais Chaya Mushka School for Girls will create and name a new scholarship fund with a minimum initial contribution or pledge of $25,000.

Scholarship programs may be endowed, annually funded or a combination of both.

The minimum contribution or pledge for establishing a permanently endowed "named" scholarship fund is $50,000. Endowed scholarship programs must meet this minimum level in order to be activated. Pledged funds are generally received within two to five years.

Endowments are considered fully funded when they reach or exceed the $50,000 level.

Benefactor Level:     $25,000 - $49,999

Visionary Level:         $50,000 - $99,999

Legacy Level:             $100,000 or more

Scholarship Naming

Scholarships may be named for the donor of the scholarship or a name designated by the donor. The word "memorial" may be included in the name if appropriate.

Tax Deductible Contributions

For contributions to a scholarship to be tax-deductible, the donor cannot have a role in the selection of the recipient. Restrictive criteria can be stipulated but it must be general enough not to create control by the donor. Additionally, no member of the donor's family to the third degree of consanguinity or second degree of affinity may benefit from the scholarship fund. The purpose of the contribution should be for a charitable cause and cannot be for the furtherance of a private interest.

Bais Chaya Mushka School for Girls also welcomes scholarships with donor-designated recipients. Contributions to these scholarships are not tax-deductible.
