Did American Woodworking Academy help you
become the woodworker, the employee, the
leader, the craftsman or the friend that
you are today? You can help give other students the same
opportunity. Here’s how:
1. Give a Lot … Not Necessarily All at Once
To establish a named scholarship, such as those featured in this
newsletter, you must give a minimum of $20,000. This can be given
all at once or pledged over time.
Contributions are placed in the school’s endowment portfolio. When
the endowment is fully funded at $20,000, the interest earned is
given as a $1,000 annual student scholarship.
You, the donor, establish the criteria for the award. The school
administration manages the scholarship.
2. Remember American Woodworking Academy
in Your Will
Scores of alumnae do this either in direct bequests or through
established trusts. All bequests or trusts at or above $20,000
qualify as named, endowed scholarship funds. Those gifts below
$20,000 are placed in the school’s general endowed funds.

When you contribute to American Woodworking
Academy in honor or memory of a family member or friend, the
money is placed in the school’s general endowment fund. After a
death, many families choose to make up the difference between what
family and friends give in memory and the $20,000 required for a
4. Give a Little
Individual contributions in any amount designated for the endowment
fund help American Woodworking Academy
accumulate interest within the overall endowment and ultimately
increase the awards of annual student scholarships.
