Futures of Prairie du Chien was founded by Prairie du Chien graduates as a way to offer scholarships to promote success through excellence in continuing education.
The board gave it's first $500 scholarship in May of 1994 and has continued to raise funds from past graduates, friends, and businesses in the community. The number of scholarships offered and awarded has grown quite a bit since that first one over twenty-five years ago.
Any corporation, business, individual, family, foundation, or estate may give a scholarship in its own name or the name of another. A $10,000 gift or pledge is required to insure its perpetuity. Consider donating today!
