Create a Fund - Do you have a specific passion that you want to see supported?  We can set up the fund, manage it, and provide you with reports to keep you updated.


Establish a Scholarship - Did you know the Crook County Foundation oversees the largest amount of scholarships in Crook County?  We help award over $65,000 a year to local high school seniors, college students (who are from Crook County), and non-traditional adults going back to school. You set the criteria, our organization handles the marketing of the scholarship, accepts and processes the applications, makes the determinations, and distributes the money.  Our donors are welcome and encouraged to present their scholarships at the senior award night in June if possible.


Fund for the Common Good - Do you want to support our community, but don't have a specific focus in mind?  We can set up a fund, with any restrictions that you prefer, to go to projects that our good for our community.  This could even be set up as small grants that community projects apply for.
