The Community Endowment for the Arts fund was established in 2016 through matching funding from the McKenna Foundation and from money raised during Fall into Art Month activities in October. The long-term goal of the fund is to establish a recurring funding source for the arts, providing a sustainable, culturally rich environment and arts education in the community.
The New Braunfels Community Foundation scholarship program helps local youth or adults pursue their dreams of furthering their education.
NBCF matches caring donors with deserving students who want to continue their studies at colleges, universities, trade or technical schools. The scholarship program is created for individual donors who set up specific criteria for the administration of their funds.
NBCF fields all applicants, filters those applicants based on criteria set up by the donor, and administers and monitors scholarship grants. This is a much easier, less expensive way for donors to make a difference in a student’s life.
