For over the last dozen years, the work of Jane Foundation & Bari Hoskins (JF&BH) Scholarship Fund (formerly the Jane Foundation Scholarship Fund) has assisted low income youth of the Greater Des Moines area in accomplishing their higher education goals through scholarship awards. Scholarship recipients receive $1,000 for an academic year and must maintain at least a 2.5 grade point average.
This is where you come in…With your sponsorship, you can help us ensure that more low-income students can and will pursue their academic dreams in preparation for the careers of tomorrow. Your sponsorship will help to make our efforts go even further! With the support of people like you, we were able to offer four awards for the 2019-20 school year!
If you’re able, we’d love it if you could make a gift of $100 or more to help us achieve our mission and see more low-income residents of the greater Des Moines area realize their educational dreams. We recognize that some donors can only afford to send less, while others would like to donate a whole lot more; we accept and welcome those gifts as well. Your financial gift will go toward making higher education a reality for all of Des Moines!
