Jonathan Club Scholarship Fund

The Jonathan Club Scholarship Fund is beginning its seventh year of scholarship awards since the first awards in fall 2013. In that time, 30 JCSF scholarships have been awarded, with contributions totaling $2.9 million. Recipients have used the scholarships towards tuition, books, and for post-high school education including trade schools, community college, universities. Qualifying recipients include: employees, spouses, children, and grandchildren.

Currently, 13 JCSF scholars have graduated and are now pursuing careers in teaching, pharmacy, engineering, business, and other areas. We track their education and post-education pursuits and provide spotlights on graduates in articles throughout the year. The JCSF is managed by volunteers—members and some nonmembers; JCSF incurs expenses only for legal and tax services, mailings, and supplies. With the ongoing success of the scholars and the generous support of Jonathans, the JCSF is another example of why our Club stands out as one of the most distinctive clubs in the world. Additionally, several other social and golf clubs are now looking to Jonathan Club for information and assistance in developing their own scholarship programs.
