Scholarship donor equity is the value that the scholarship award will give students to develop over-time through improvement in knowledge and/or skilled based. The donor’s equity will mature when the said student becomes a knowledgeable employee, opinion leader or the innovator with the sector.
Scholarship donor equity comes from scholarship donations. This is the most effective low cost strategy to create and maintain a high awareness in the minds of customers and the wider population (for a brand). Some of the proven scholarship donor equity benefits are listed as follows:
- Tax deductible: when you donate scholarships or grants, the GOJ allows a charitable donation deduction on your tax returns within the same year;
- Donors help increase the expectations of young Jamaicans who are at high risk for dropping out of school due to lack of funding;
- You will give families (your customers and potential customers) hope and empowerment;
- All recipients and the schools they attend will be made aware that your company is responsible for their scholarships;
- Long-term advertisement and promotion when your company or a product name is associated with the scholarship;
- Major endorsements from opinion leaders in the finance and education system;
- Recognition as a corporate citizen and as a contributor to the increase literacy levels;
