Gift of Gratitude
Firm Foundation Endowment Fund
Established in 2019, the Firm Foundation Endowment Fund provides financial aid to students who would otherwise not be able to attend a school like Cornerstone. The fund was established by a family who would like to remain anonymous. They were amazingly blessed by Cornerstone and their hope is that others could share in the same blessing. All unrestricted financial aid donations are placed in this fund and are shown in the Capital Campaign section of the Advancement Report.
Katie Trapani Scholarship Fund
Established in 2017, the Katie Trapani Scholarship Fund provides financial aid to children or grandchildren of Cornerstone employees that would otherwise not be able to afford a school like Cornerstone. This fund was established by countless individuals in memory of Katie Trapani, affectionately known as “Mama T.” Katie taught in a variety of capacities at Cornerstone, but is most remembered as a remarkable teacher who made history come alive through live simulations. She left an indelible mark on everyone she encountered. She loved others well and her memory will live on in the lives of her “muffins” and colleagues.
De Ann Crawford Scholarship Fund
Established in 2022, the De Ann Crawford Scholarship Fund provides financial aid to students who would otherwise not be able to attend a school like Cornerstone. This fund was established by individuals who were grateful for Mrs. Crawford’s service to Cornerstone (2003-2022) while serving as the Head of School and sole administrator and then transitioned to Director of Admissions to be more available for her family. Regardless of the title, Mrs. Crawford’s legacy runs deep and wide. Her love of Cornerstone is only dwarfed by her love for Christ, love of her family and love for others.
