Friendship Center Scholarship Fund

Board members Vince Kavaloski and Dave Pearson have started a special scholarship fund for children who have attended Friendship Center’s children camps in past years and in the future. The fund has been invested in a socially responsible PAX World Balanced Fund and will be available to campers who have participated in our Children’s Camp and have completed High School, assisting them with higher education expenses, whether college or technical school. It is hoped that the FC Scholarship

Fund will further motivate FC Campers to do well and stay in school. If you would like to donate to this fund, please send your donation to: Friendship Center 3973 Evans Quarry Road Dodgeville WI 53533 Friendship Center is recognized as a Charitable Organization by the State of Wisconsin, License #780, and the Internal Revenue EIN 23-7112657 as described in section 501(c)(3). Your donation is greatly appreciated and is also tax deductible. Thank you to all who have contributed to this fund.

Thanks to all the volunteers who have made Friendship Center more user friendly, clean and efficient.
