How to Endow a Scholarship
Establishing a scholarship to benefit current and future generations of FarmHouse men is easy, satisfying, and tax-deductible. Ten thousand dollars ($10,000) or more permanently endows a scholarship. The gift can be made in a lump-sum or spread out over up to 5 years. The gift can be out right, via bequest, or other deferred gift arrangement. For gifts of $10,000 or more, the Foundation staff will work with the donor to prepare a fund agreement to assure that the gift is used as the donor intends in perpetuity.
Scholarships can be for academic achievement and/or need. They can also be for the more broadly defined scholarship of the 21st century and provide scholarships for a number of men from the chapter of your choice to attend The FarmHouse Leadership Institute, The Regional Leadership Conferences, Emerging Talent Retreat or Conclave. Scholarships can also be for technology, study abroad, or other educational opportunities and programs.

"We made this gift to pay forward to an organization that has impacted our lives. FarmHouse was an important part of my college heritage. With this gift, we want to recognize and reward outstanding academics in FarmHouse and help ensure the Fraternity’s rich tradition of academic excellence continues in the future." - Gene (IA ’47) & Linda Lloyd
Gene and Linda endowed an academic scholarship fund, which offers academic scholarships to four FarmHouse undergraduates from across North America each year.
“It felt really, really, really good to see Father’s and Aunt Dorothy’s names among the chapter scholarships in the Annual Report! I think that good feeling is what it is all about! They may be gone but their names will continue on.” - Larry Hageman (OH ’78)
Larry has endowed three scholarship funds with the FarmHouse Foundation, in memory of his family, for members of the Ohio State chapter. He has also endowed a scholarship open to all FarmHouse members majoring in Crop sciences.
