Pete Isaksen Endowments Established

The TUMC Endowment Committee is honored to announce the establishment of two new endowment funds in memory of Pete Isaksen. Pete made a generous financial donation to TUMC upon his passing. His gift was used to create the Pete Isaksen General Fund and Pete Isaksen Scholarship Fund. The General Fund will be applied to  Church needs, as determined by the Board of Trustees. The Scholarship Fund will be put into immediate action with scholarship awards for the upcoming 2017/2018 academic year. This generous scholarship of up to 3 scholarships per year, each valued at up to $10,000 per year, and renewable for up to 3 additional years, will go far towards reducing the financial burden of students pursuing degrees in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering or Math) fields of study. TUMC is truly blessed by this gift and grateful to Pete and the Isaksen family for making these endowments possible.New Scholarship Formed at Trinity UMC!
