Scholarship Fund Phonathon March 22
To benefit The Scholarship Foundation of Wakefield, Massachusetts
Student directors from The Scholarship Foundation of Wakefield (TSF) met with the Board of Selectmen to discuss the upcoming 34th Annual TSF Phonathon on Saturday, March 22, 2014.. Between 12 and 4 p.m. on that day, students will be calling local residents. The annual Phonathon helps raise funds for scholarships awarded to Wakefield college students. Each donation, regardless of the dollar amount, goes a long way in making a difference in the life of at least one local student in need of scholarship assistance. Last year’s volunteers helped raise $49,000.
Everyone who receives a call on March 22nd is encouraged to make a tax-deductible donation to TSF, whether it is to the general fund, or to a specific permanent or accumulating fund. After the pledge is made, the donor will receive a confirmation by mail. Donations can be applied to an existing permanent or accumulating scholarship by noting the name of the fund on the check. Any local residents who are not at home when the call is made can send their donation to TSF of Wakefield Phonathon, PO Box 321, Wakefield, MA 01880.
The selectmen also issued a resolution proclaiming the week of March 16 – 22 as “Dollars for Scholars Week” in Wakefield.
