How to Support Us

The Foundation seeks financial support annually through requests for contributions by a mailing to all businesses in November and another in the spring to all residences.

The Foundation welcomes support in the form of tax-deductible gifts, bequests and contributions of any size.

We also accept gifts of appreciated assets (stocks, bonds, mutual funds).  A non-cash gift, or gift via your estate, can bring meaningful financial and tax benefits to you and the Walpole Scholarship Foundation.  Please consult your financial advisor as the Walpole Scholarship Foundation cannot provide tax or legal advice.

As a tax exempt, non-profit organization, individual contributions made to the Walpole Scholarship Foundation may be eligible for a matching gift through your employer. The Walpole Scholarship foundation is a tax-exempt organization under the Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3).
