Lenape Valley Scholarhip Fund
About the LV Scholarship Fund
The Lenape Valley Basketball Scholarship Fund Tournament was founded in 1998. The founding purpose of this scholarship fund was to support children who have experienced the catastrophic loss of a parent and needed help in obtaining a college education. As the program has grown, scholarship eligibility has expanded to include students making significant achievements in academics and community service. As the children progress through college, we continue to contribute money each year to help them continue their college education.
For the first several years, the tournament was held at Unami Middle School and has seen continual growth in both the involvement of the local business community donating it’s time and resources and the continual expansion of the tournament itself, necessitating moving the Tournament to a larger venue.
We are now hosting the Tournament at the beautiful gyms of CB South. The tournament has grown to a level of participation; with the addition of a “Futures” Division a few years ago; we now have at least 300 – 400 children ages 6-18 playing each year. This tournament has turned into a “can’t miss” event for children of all grades throughout our community.
To date through the generousness of our supporters, sponsors, and players we have raised over $75,000 toward the college education of children within our community.
