PLEASE SUPPORT OUR
‘GIFT CARD BONANZA’ RAFFLE
to benefit the
HIRSCH-RANACHQUA COLLEGE ASSISTANCE FUND
Our College Assistance Program provides funds to Bronx Boy Scouts who are graduating high school seniors about to enter college in the fall, to help with the costs of books, transportation, etc. Selection is based on commitment to the Scout Oath and Law and the evaluation of the applicant’s record of leadership and service to Scouting and the community, rather than on financial need. Grants are renewable each semester for up to four years for a total of $5,000, contingent on the grantee documenting continued service to others, in and out of Scouting, while in college.
Largely funded by a bequest from the estate of Rhoda K. Hirsch, in memory of her late husband Sol, a former Ranachqua camper and staff member who credited his Boy Scout experiences as a major influence on his esteemed career in news, intelligence and the Foreign Service, the fund is supplemented by ONLY donations and fundraisers specifically designated to the fund.
This fund has paid out or committed over $400,000 in grants to 57 deserving scouts, largely diminishing available funds. We welcome your support, so that we can continue to support and reward future scouts.
