What is the Endowment Fund?
Funding Our Future
The Florida Key Club Endowment Fund was established to provide college scholarships and funds to reduce the cost of the annual District Education and Leadership Conference (DCON). The Endowment Fund focuses on funding opportunities for Key Club servant leaders and will fund at least ten scholarships, nine of which will be $2,000 each. As the Endowment grows in future years, the number of funded scholarships will increase. In fact, over the next five years, the Endowment aims to grow to more than $1 million and to eventually provide dozens of scholarships. However, this goal will only be possible with your help.
Contributions made to the Endowment are entirely tax deductible under U.S. Internal Revenue regulations. We encourage Key Club members, former members, family, friends, businesses, and organizations to consider making a tax-deductible donation. You may even make automatic recurring donations and donations in someone’s name. Simply click on the Give Now button above to get started.
Visit this page often to read about awards that individual Key Club members and clubs may qualify for by securing donations.
