One of the ancient admonitions of our Order is to “educate the orphan”. In accordance with that worthy goal, the family of Triffle P. and Annie G. Ivancovich have made a generous donation to establish Davis Odd Fellows Charities, Inc. (a 501(c)(3) corporation) to operate a scholarship fund for the benefit of orphans and young men and women who grew up in the foster care system. This fund can provide scholarships of between $5,000 to $10,000 for recipients. There are stringent requirements to qualify, but the fund is available for applicants from throughout the USA. The eligibility requirements are listed on the forms.
There are two forms to fill out to apply for a scholarship. There is a nomination form – any Odd Fellow or Rebekah may nominate a worthy candidate. And there is a simple application form, to be completed by the young man or woman applying for the funds. The deadline for receipt of submissions is March 1, 2014. All nomination and application forms should be mailed or delivered to:
Davis Odd Fellows Charities, Inc.
Attn: David Rosenberg, President
Odd Fellows Hall
415 Second Street
Davis CA 95616
The forms are available on this website under Lodge Programs and may be downloaded.
