"I am writing to express my deep gratitude for the Pasadena Methodist Foundation Scholarship. It has helped relieve the financial burden of getting a college education and allows me to focus primarily on learning."
"The Foundation provided me with the money to develop an ongoing service project for young adults: Skid Row Saturdays. Approximately once a quarter, a group of 4-12 young adults gather to pack sack lunches, toiletries, socks and other useful items for delivery to residents, predominately the homeless, of Skid Row in downtown Los Angeles."
"Thank you all for your generous gift. I will use your donation as a way of paying for my books. As you all know books are very expensive so your gift is very helpful. FUMC has always been a safe place for me growing up and I hope that someday I can give back to the community and Foundation that has been so supportive."
"Thank you for supporting my educational pursuits once again. I am excited to begin my third year at UC Davis in Berlin, studying German and International economics and political science. College has been an eye opening adventure and I want you to know that the scholarship fund has helped me excel these past two years."
"Thank you so much for the grant you have graciously given me. Your continued support of my education means not only the world to me but my family as well. We are deeply grateful for all the support you have given us these past few years and we cannot thank you enough for your generosity."
"Each summer, the FUMC Drama Committee puts on a Broadway musical involving as many as 35 middle and high school students. With productions such as the recent production of The Music Man that involved all ages, the cast can grow even larger."
"For as long as anyone can remember, the Sunday School children, supported by the Foundation, have led a Lenten mission project to raise money to send living animals throughout the world to families in need."
"In addition to tuition and room & board, college expenses include books, materials and class fees. Even though I was fortunate to have parent support for tuition and board, my annual FUMC college scholarship was an immense help in defraying the cost of books and materials needed for classes."
