The Rhode Island Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals is offering a $2,500 college scholarship to a student graduating from a Rhode Island high school in June 2013 who has demonstrated a history of philanthropy and volunteerism. The Herbert E. Kaplan Youth in Philanthropy Scholarship will be presented to a Rhode Island high school student at the National Philanthropy Day Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, Nov. 20, 2012. It is the hope that the award winner's chosen education area will nurture a continued interest in community service.
The award is named in memory of Herb Kaplan, a Rhode Islander well noted for his service to the community. The scholarship is jointly funded by the Association of Fundraising Professionals – Rhode Island Chapter and Herb’s wife, Christine Townsend.
