The SCCF’s 20th Anniversary Series
Education is important for individuals to become contributing members of society. However, a college education is becoming more expensive all the time. Without outside sources, post-secondary education can seem unattainable for high school students. In order to address this problem and to help educate our community’s future workforce, many donors have established scholarship funds with the Starke County Community Foundation (SCCF).
SCCF scholarship funds vary in size and criteria. Oftentimes, donors wish to support students who plan to pursue a career in a field that they are passionate about or that they themselves pursued.
See how Starke County is passionate about education and the future of our students.

Women’s Giving Circles are not unique to Fulton County. The Fulton County Community Foundation (FCCF) was aware of the widespread initiative. When the idea was brought up in a FCCF meeting, Judy Climie and Barb Lutterbein decided it was time to see if there were other women in the community interested in starting a Women’s Giving Circle. The two women began to contact individuals who they believed might want to be a part of the cause.
