Al Church Scholarship Application


PDF icon 2020-2021 Al Church Scholarship Application

Every year, we hold the Al Church Scholarship Raffle to help support the employees and families of AFSCME Council 65 in funding their education. Because of past support of this important annual fund-raising effort, the Scholarship Committee has been able to provide many valuable scholarships to Union Members. Last year, six (6) $500 scholarships were awarded and our goal this year is to be able to give back more.

 This year, we are trying a different approach. We would like to ask our members, along with each Local and Chapter to send a donation for the Al Church Scholarship fund. I have listed the suggested donation amounts below, however please feel free to contribute what you can. Please help us continue this long tradition of providing Scholarships to our Union Members’ children.

Please have all donations returned to the St. Cloud office by February 19th, 2021. All donors will be entered into a drawing. Each $25 donation will equal one entry. Those that contribute $100 or more will receive 5 entries per $100 donated. On March 16th, we will hold the drawing in which three (3) winners will win $250.00 each!  If you would like to donate please print off the donation form and send it, along with the donation to the St. Cloud office.
