What type of fund may I contribute to for either Foundation?:

C.A.R. Scholarship Foundation


C.A.R. Education Foundation

A perpetual fund may be initiated with only $500. Once the initiated fund reaches $10,000 it is considered a perpetual fund and may be given in honor/memory of an individual/association forever

A legacy “named fund” may be initiated with just $500 as well. Once the initiated fund reaches $10,000 it is considered a legacy “named fund” and may be given in honor/memory of an individual/association until all funds have been awarded

Individuals or groups may establish a Legacy “Named Fund” by consulting with an estate planner, tax professional and attorney. Learn how to initiate this fund.

How do these funds work? The funds for each foundation are invested with C.A.R.’s financial managers. Each year both foundations are given a recommended budget to consider for award recipients.
