Rick Diana, Trustee

My 60th birthday is a special opportunity for my family and friends to join me in lifting even one more child off the waiting list for the 2021 school year. 2020 has been a difficult year for all of us, but the COVID crisis has disproportionately impacted the families of our students with illness, job loss, and the risk of losing their small businesses. It has also caused others who haven't needed our help in the past to seek scholarships for their children. While Tri-County has increased the number of scholarships it awarded in 2020 by 200 to address the need, our waiting list has also significantly grown. We expect a record number of scholarship applications in 2021as more families continue to be adversely impacted by the continuing crisis.

For 40 years, Tri-County Scholarship Fund's formula has been proven to work:

  • Tri-County awards partial scholarships for K-12th grade students to attend safer, quality schools.

  • Our partner schools often offer discounted tuition.

  • The parents and families make significant sacrifices to pay their share.

  • ALL ARE INVESTED IN THE SUCCESS OF OUR STUDENTS.

 

Why does it work?

  • The parents and families have "skin in the game" and stay engaged in the process.

  • The schools provide safe, disciplined, and values-centered environments, allowing the students to thrive.

  • Tri-County donors and supporters are moved by the impact they see unfold in the lives of our students and stay connected.

  • OUR STUDENTS FEEL CARED FOR AND BELIEVED IN AND MAKE THE MOST OUT OF THE EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY.

 

A one-year K-8th grade scholarship is $2000 and a one-year high school scholarship is $4000.

 

The donation amounts are multiples of $60 to reflect my 60th milestone birthday, but please consider helping with any sized gift that you can.

Thank you!
