Family establishes scholarship for Frederick organization

April 28, 2008

FREDERICK, Md. - Lifelong Frederick residents Dick and Sue Basford have established the Basford Family Fund at the Community Foundation of Frederick County.

"We want to help people interested in pursuing a career in the trades or technical arena who need financial help in accomplishing their goals through education," said the Basfords.

"We are pleased to be able to do so in a way that will impact the future of Frederick County residents each and every day."

The first scholarships from the Basford Family Fund will be awarded in June.

Dick and Sue Basford are among the many generous citizens seeking to create positive and lasting change through philanthropy by working with the Community Foundation to create funds that provide scholarships to deserving students and grants to area nonprofits serving people in need. Because of the trust donors have placed in the Community Foundation, more than $17 million has been returned to the Frederick County community since 1986.
