As a Quaker Continuing Care Retirement Community, Pennswood Village often celebrates stewardship, generosity, and giving back. The Employee Scholarship Fund is just one example of this culture in practice.
Every year, Pennswood Village residents contribute donations to the Employee Scholarship Fund, a fund dedicated to investing in the education of current Pennswood employees.
“The scholarship means that I am supported by the community,” says Nicole Folston, scholarship recipient and fitness trainer at Pennswood. “The support and encouragement I have received from the residents and my peers has been the most valuable to me through my back to school process.”
Donating to this fund is a special way for residents to thank employees for their hard work and to invest in their futures. Currently, the Scholarship Fund has benefitted almost 100 employees, with over half a million dollars donated.
