Endowments begin at $60,000 which will yield a $2,400 scholarship. Scholarship endowments may be made in one lump sum or amortized over 1-4 years. Disbursements from endowments cannot be made until a minimum of $60,000 has been endowed.  ASF will gladly advertise a new endowment via newsletter, website and social media, but will not actively fundraise for the endowment.
