Supporting education is an investment in the future, and the Anthony V. Spano Foundation has many opportunities where you can make a difference. By starting your own scholarship fund, you are directly impacting students as they seek to achieve their academic dreams.

Scholarship funds can be customized to support an area of study, particular school, recipient profiles and a host of other criteria to meet your intent. In addition, a scholarship fund is a wonderful way to honor a loved one. We handle the administration of the fund, including application and selection processes. With as much or as little donor involvement as desired.

Endowing a scholarship through the Anthony V. Spano Foundation provides a student each year the opportunity to get a college education to better their futures. This gift not only has a current impact on a student but provides students year after year in perpetuity with monies to offset their tuition. Colleges and Universities does not want its students to graduate with major loans to be paid. The Spano Foundation scholarship endowments will allow students to graduate with little or no debt.

The Spano Foundation scholarship endowments enable colleges and universities to recruit and retain students from the region, the entire United States, and the world. Because the criteria for a student to receive a scholarship is designed by the donor, students with diverse goals and backgrounds are and can be awarded scholarships.
