AKSARBEN Scholarship Fund


The AKSARBEN Foundation Scholarship Fund exclusively benefits Heartland youth in their pursuit of higher education.
Funded in 2000, the endowment ensured AKSARBEN scholarships would continue into perpetuity.
The original donors, known as the Crown Scholarship Donors, gifted $50,000-$75,000.

In 2007, AKSARBEN Foundation established cumulative levels of giving. These levels are diamond,
emerald, ruby, sapphire and jewel. Subsequent gifts by donors determine their Jewel Level of distinction, since 2000.

Jewel Levels are:

Diamond
Gifts over $100,000
Emerald
$50,000 to $99,999
Ruby
$25,000 to $49,999
Sapphire $10,000 to $24,999
Jewel $5,000 to $9,999

Contributions to the AKSARBEN Scholarship Fund are 100 percent tax-deductible.
