Benefactor Guide

Advancing Dreams and Aspirations 


One of the most pressing needs at Pine Forge Academy today is funding for scholarships. PFAF Scholarships allow deserving students to attain their educational goals, meet their professional objectives and succeed to their fullest ability. In addition, PFAF scholarships enable the students to take advantage of opportunities to gain a higher education and become contributing citizens in society.


Anyone can become a scholarship benefactor — an alumnus, a corporation, a small business, a private  individual, a group of co-workers, associations and non-profit organizations, even other foundations.  With adequate funding and proper planning, the process of developing a successful scholarship is not difficult.

Guidelines To Establish A Foundation Scholarship

There is no deadline for creating a scholarship.  You may become a Benefactor at any time.

Duration of Award

You must decide whether the scholarship will be a one-time award or renewable. If the scholarship is renewable, you may want to recommend a maximum number of years a student may apply for your scholarship and be awarded a renewal. As you address this issue, you will want to consider whether or not it is important that a new scholarship be awarded each year. Scholarship guidelines that have a provision for renewal generally require that the scholarship recipient complete an application annually, rather than permitting an automatic renewal.
