Benson Polytechnic High School Alumni Association

Scholarship Fund

Donations are handled by The Oregon Community Foundation (OCF) who invests, administers and distributes the funds.

Each year, the interest income is available for scholarship awards to graduating seniors selected by a panel of Benson teachers.  The award monies go directly to their chosen school as tuition.

As the Reunion Scholarship Fund has grown in size, the awards have increased substantially.  While 1991 saw two scholarships awarded for $250 each, 2016 saw over $4,800 awarded to three recipients.

If you would like to donate by check:

Payable to: “The Oregon Community Foundation”

Send to:
The Oregon Community Foundation
1221 SW Yamhill St.
Suite 100

Please note that there is a $25 minimum for donations made online or by check.
