GivingTuesday success

You are here

Because of your generosity, the McHenry County Historical Society will once again be able to offer a $1,000 scholarship in 2021.

Donors contributed $470 to the effort, which – backed by existing funds – will ensure that another $1,000 Nancy Fike Scholarship will be awarded to a local, high school graduate who plans on studying education, history or the social sciences in college. Education leads to civic engagement. Educated people are more likely to vote, more likely to run for office; more likely to make a positive difference. And history teaches us something particularly relevant at this time: How to avoid making the same mistakes.


You are helping prepare the next generation of leaders. Thank you!


Established in 2012, the same year as the McHenry County Historical Society's scholarship, GivingTuesday has grown into a global movement during the past nine years – inspiring hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate and celebrate generosity.
