The Finley River Community Foundation hosted a successful first-time reception for its local scholarship recipients at the Ozark High School library earlier this week.
The dessert reception gave donors the opportunity to meet the scholarship recipients in a more informal atmosphere. The Finley River Community Foundation granted $13,800 in scholarships to Ozark High School students this year.

We were so happy to celebrate the success of our 2018 Endowment Match Challenge yesterday evening! Ten nonprofits, from Joplin to Cape Girardeau, raised a total of $174,388.14. With the CFO’s match of $5,000 each, that makes a total of $224,388.14 for endowed funds that will help these nonprofits in perpetuity. As our President Brian Fogle said at our party last night: “That’s a better return than Bitcoin.”
