MIPIA Scholarship Fund

mipia-2016Michigan Association of Professional Insurance Agents Scholarship

A new scholarship fund has been created to promote the education of students who are pursuing careers in insurance related fields. This new fund has been established by the Michigan Association of Professional Insurance Agents (MIPIA). It is a permanent, endowed fund which will leave a legacy to assist students who are pursuing the insurance field as their career path.

MIPIA contains a membership of civic-minded, small businessmen and women who embody the spirit of entrepreneurial America and form the backbone of our society. They are leaders in their communities, providing personal attention to customers, one neighbor at a time.

The MIPIA has created the scholarship fund through Four County Community Foundation. The Foundation has 119 funds with a wide variety of charitable purposes. The MIPIA fund will be placed in 4CCF’s highly diversified pool with over $13,000,000 in assets. They provide best practices in administering scholarship funds and are certified in compliance with National Standards for U. S. Community Foundations.

Support of the MIPIA scholarship will assist future insurance related careers of youth for generations to come. Your gift will provide a permanent benefit to assist youth in their college education resulting from a legacy that your gift has inspired. Endowed scholarship funds invest gifts to the fund. Earnings from the gifts are used to make grants, helping with scholarships today and in the future. The power of an endowment is in its continuity.

Your gift may be given in cash, publicly traded stock, real estate, or as a bequest. You may make a gift at 4ccf.org by clicking on the “Give Now” button, and then scrolling to the Michigan Association of Professional Insurance Agents Scholarship in the fund list. Or send a check with “MIPIA Scholarship” in the note section to: Four County Community Foundation, PO Box 539, Almont, Michigan 48003.
