Model A Ford Youth Scholarship Fund
MAFCA is pleased to offer its financial support and encourages both members and chapters to also support this great program for our Model A youth, either through fundraisers, memorials or individual donations.
The Model A Ford Youth Scholarship Fund, Inc. was established as a 501 (c)(3) tax exempt organization to assist children and/or grandchildren of any MAFCA/MARC member in pursuing their undergraduate education, whether it be a state university, college or technical school. The scholarships awarded are for up to four years. The funds come from financial contributions and various fundraising efforts from MAFCA/MARC members and chapters.
The Model A Ford Youth Scholarship Fund is sponsored by the Victoria Association.
Some member families have made donations to the Fund out of respect for a death in their family. ALL of the funds that are contributed become part of the Scholarship Fund. The Fund administrators donate their time and receive no compensation for their time and efforts.
All scholarship winners receive $1,000 every year for up to four years upon submission of satisfactory grade requirements.
Since its inception in 2002, the scholarship has raised over $150,000 for MAFCA/MARC youth members. Unfortunately, we are unable to award a scholarship to each applicant, as we are limited to the funds we raise each year.
A very big THANK YOU to the MAFCA/MARC Chapters and members who have donated to the Model A Ford Youth Scholarship Fund., Inc. If you have not donated, you are urged to do so – the kids need your help. Remember, it is a non-profit organization and is, therefore, a tax deductible contribution.
We sincerely hope that all of the MAFCA Chapters and MARC regions become familiar with this program and get their youth members interested. The fund is there to help the youth. To carry on this program, it is necessary to help support the Fund and to keep this great youth Scholarship program going and growing.
