​The Reason for Our Fundraising


The main purpose for our fund-raising efforts is to fund scholarships for deserving youth from the greater Hampstead Community. Children who have volunteered, or whose family members have volunteered for Civic Club programs and events are eligible. 


Typically the Civic Club awards 10-12 scholarships per year

Among these we have some special scholarships dedicated to some special past Civic Club participants.  

Perpetuating the concept of Community Involvement
