RIHS '56

Dear Classmates,

Through the generosity of many alumni, we have been able to award a scholarship to a deserving RIHS graduate each year since 2003. Funds are sent to the school the award recipient will attend, not to the individual. Each applicant is required to meet several criteria and to write an essay on what an education from RIHS has meant to them. You will be pleased to know that RIHS offers a quality education and produces outstanding students.

Please consider making a gift. No amount is too small. You have many options for your giving: you can use your required IRA distribution; you can donate stocks with a capital gain, thus avoiding taxes; you can also include the Foundation in your will.


Send a check to:

RIHS Class of 56 Foundation

C/O Paul Soyke

9 Timber Ridge Dr.

Coal Valley, IL 61240

Or send directly to:

Community Foundation of the Great River Bend
