FVL Ladies Guild Financial Aid Fund
The FVL Ladies Guild Financial Aid Fund is an endowment fund established as a memorial to the FVL Ladies Guild and their dedicated service to the high school from 1953-2012. The fund was established in November 2011 with an initial gift of $10,000. The purpose of this fund is to provide tuition assistance, especially to new families and those sending their first child to FVL.
The fund is to be managed by FVL as a segregated fund. Grants of up to $500 will be provided annually from the earnings of the fund; the start-up gift of $10,000 is to stay intact. Grants are to be made at the recommendation of the FVL President to the Tuition Assistance Committee at their annual spring financial aid meeting. A minimum of two grants will be provided at the annual spring financial aid meeting.
The school is to use this initial gift as seed money to build a higher endowment to assist families and to hold an annual appeal to continue to build the assets of this fund.
