The Brothertown Scholarship Fund assists students of the Waterville Central School with academic scholarships. Our mission is to raise money which is used to assist WCS seniors with their college expenses. We began in 1991 by awarding fourteen seniors $52.80 each. Since the program's inception, we have been able to award over $300,000 in scholarships. Some of this money came from individual memorial scholarships which we manage, and the remainder was the interest income generated from the annual endowment fund drive. Any amount of money you can donate is greatly appreciated.
Please consider contributing to the Endowment Fund (no amount is too small) or starting an individual scholarship (minimum $250). A third option is contributing to an existing scholarship (list below).
To establish a scholarship, donate to the Endowment Fund or a Designated Scholarship, please print out the online form, complete and mail to: Brothertown Scholarship Fund, PO Box 454, Waterville, NY 13480. Thank you for your support of the students at WCS.

- Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) – If you are age 70.5 or older, you can make a QCD, or a charitable contribution directly from a pre-tax retirement account to our organization. This will lower your taxable income, providing a tax benefit for making a charitable contribution; something no longer available to individuals who cannot itemize their taxes.
