The Greater Pike Community Foundation is pleased to announce that it has received funding from The Dime Bank to offer its first Pre-K Scholarship opportunity.

The Scholarships will be based on financial need and will provide partial tuition to one or more families in the Greater Pike area with a preschool age child to attend a pre-K program at either the Center for Developmental Disabilities or Green Trees Early Learning Center, Inc., in the fall of 2018.

Scholarship applications will be made available later this spring and posted on www.greaterpike.org.

Families interested in applying for a Pre-K scholarship may contact Gail Shuttleworth, Scholarship Chair at scholarships@greaterpike.org for information.

"We are grateful to The Dime Bank for their generosity which allows us to provide needed support to families with young children,” Shuttleworth said.

The Dime’s support was made possible by the Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program offered by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, acting through the Department of Community and Economic Development.

The Greater Pike Community Foundation was created to enable generous individuals, families and local businesses to maximize their charitable support through organized, targeted, long-term community philanthropy.

The Foundation provides a permanent and personal way to give back to the region we love and have worked so hard to nurture and maintain.

For information about establishing a fund in memory of a loved one, or to discuss how to realize your charitable goals for the future, contact Jim Pedranti at info@greaterpike.org, 570- 296-6959 or visit www.greaterpike.org and Facebook.com/GreaterPike.
