Pine Lake Employee Scholarship Foundation

Pine Lake Employee Scholarship Foundation

Background and History of Our Foundation

The Pine Lake Country Club Employee Scholarship Foundation was created in 2011 as a way to reward and retain our excellent employees.  It is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and operates as a separate legal entity from the Club.  Our employee scholarship program is in keeping with similar programs at other private country clubs in our area.  The Foundation has no employees.  Our Board Members serve on a voluntary basis.  All of the Foundation’s funding comes from donations by our PLCC members.  100% of the donations (net of modest operating expenses) go to the Foundation.  All donations are tax deductible.

Because of generous donations in the past, the Foundation has awarded 193 scholarships totaling over $235K.  Please consider supporting our employees’ educational opportunities through a tax-deductible donation to the PLCC Employee Scholarship Foundation. Carli Tower, a 2022 recipient writes, “Having the ability to obtain my degree and being able to experience education at a higher level are some of the most important opportunities I have been presented with in my life. I believe that this scholarship financially helps me towards my goal of completing my education. I would like to thank all the members for this amazing opportunity as well as their kindness and efforts towards this foundation to provide funds for students.”
