On Going Reminders

Heart of the Trojan Giving Campaign: Fife Scholarship Foundation

We are in the final seven weeks of 2020 and what a year it has been. All of us at the FHS Scholarship Foundation are grateful for our donors and volunteers, and for their generous investment in Fife High School and its graduating seniors. The holiday season is just around the corner and we invite you to kick it off with us on Giving Tuesday.


Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving back. On the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (December 1st), you will have a chance to join people around the world and support a cause close to your heart.


This Giving Tuesday and throughout the final weeks of 2020, help us give the gift of higher education to 200 graduating seniors at Fife High School. By joining this movement, you will be expanding access to trade schools, technical schools, colleges, and universities. We know that sometimes all it takes to make a difference is a little support. In this way, you give back and pay forward at the same time!


Gifts of all sizes are important to the Foundation’s ability to provide graduating Trojans the support they need to pursue the next level of education. Our goal for 2020 and the Heart of the Trojan campaign is $20,000. We have seven weeks left to reach that goal. See the attached slides for more information or go to www.fhssf.org to make a donation, establish a scholarship, or find out more about the Foundation.
