CORPORATE MEMBERSHIP PROGRAM
The Yoder Brothers, Joshua & Tyler,
Memorial Scholarship Foundation
The Yoder Brothers Memorial Scholarship program has become an integral part of the community. It has enriched the community by helping the young men and women of the community pursue a higher education. It is a true collaborative effort and ideal experience for the community. We bring together family, volunteers, sponsors and patrons, corporate and business entities and our understanding of how to produce charity fund-raising events. Working side-by-side, these partnerships have produced some extraordinary results cultivated by the pride and generosity of every partner.
The corporate sponsorship program of the Yoder Brothers Foundation is the business connection of the communitiesí involvement in the scholarship program. A Corporate Member contributes $1,000 annually to the scholarship fund. Their name is added to the Memorial Scholarship Foundationís letterhead. All printed matter and publicity relative to the scholarship fundís activities carries the Corporate Memberís name. This includes the three fund-raising events Ė the Baseball Championships, the Memorial Invitational Golf Tournament, the Celebrity Dinner & Auction and the scholarship presentations at the three high schools.
The monies contributed by the Corporate Members are used for the expenses of conducting the fund-raising events. Any excess monies over the expenses are put into the investment account for the continuance and growth of the scholarship fund. The $1,000 annual contribution is requested each year in the month of April.
The Corporate Memberís involvement, generosity and compassion are at the heart of this endeavor. Consider this for a moment: Using this yearís scholarship awards as an example, the Corporate Memberís annual contribution would have become synonymous with the giving of $72,000 in college scholarship grants to 30 young men and women from Berkshire, Cardinal and Newbury High Schools. Additionally, the Corporate Member becomes associated with the $3,500 given to the kids of the Southeast Geauga Baseball League involving the seven communities of Burton, Claridon, Huntsburg, Middlefield, Newbury, Parkman and Troy. One would agree that the Corporate Memberís $1,000 annual contribution is a worthwhile expense and a most economical and effortless community involvement with a BIG RETURN ON INVESTMENT Ė an investment in our youth and the knowledge that you and your company make a big difference in their lives.
