To fully endow this scholarship for it to continue for many years, we need to raise $25,000. To date, we have raised almost $15,000. Recently I have been informed that we have an anonymous donor who will match up to $5,000. That means if we match the $5,000 we will fully endow the scholarship. Many of you have already given and thank you. Please consider giving a little more and encourage anyone you know who appreciates what Bill Pearl has done to change local journalism and ask them to give. We can do this!!!
