Hellenic Times Scholarship Fund
The Hellenic Times Scholarship Fund is an award for students of Greek descent and has awarded over $2 million in scholarships to over 800 students from across the United States. The sole fundraiser for the organization is its annual Awards Gala in May. The funds for the Scholarships awarded are principally raised through our journal, raffle and the generosity of members of the community and corporations who purchase tables and make donations. Every cent raised after event expenses and operating expenses goes directly to scholarships for the education of our students. Only 6 cents out of every dollar raised goes towards HTSF operating expenses, which include: telephone, website maintenance, office supplies, tax preparation, and application processing. The Fund does not employ any full-time employees and relies principally on the generosity of its committee volunteers for all aspects of running the organization, including but not limited to event planning, scholarship evaluation, fundraising, type-setting and art design.
