“The Clover Foundation of Santa Clara County is extremely pleased to give 12 graduating 4-H and FFA high school seniors academic scholarships to support their educational goals. The 12 received scholarships because of their contributions to the community, to their own development, and to the development of others. Nearly $14,000 in scholarships were presented with the help of a generous $5000 grant from the East Bay Community Foundation, and through the generosity of business and individual donations to the Clover Foundation.

The East Bay Community Foundation (www.eastbaycf.org) transforms lives by harnessing financial capital, leadership and philanthropic expertise through the power of many: partnerships with individual donors, business, government, and private foundations.  The Foundation is especially dedicated to advancing economic opportunity for those in need and the education that leads to it.  As a leading resource on charitable giving and community needs, the Foundation manages more than 500 charitable funds and endowments.

More than twice the number of scholarships were presented to a deserving group of FFA and 4-H members at the August 2, 2014, Santa Clara County Fair ceremony.  To be eligible for the Scholarships, applicants must be:

•           Active members of a Santa Clara County youth agriculture organization

•           Residents of Santa Clara County

•           Seniors graduating from high school during the award year

Preference is given to youth in an agriculturally focused youth programs, or pursuing a career in agriculture.

Congratulations to each of the FFA and 4-H scholarship winners for their dedication, leadership, and community involvement. The Clover Foundation of Santa Clara County wishes each recipient the best in the pursuit of their academic, career, and life goals.

Donate now to help the Clover Foundation give outstanding FFA and 4-H youth scholarships in 2015 to support youth pursuing a college degree. Thank you to everyone, including the East Bay Community Foundation for making this scholarship program a reality.”
