Jacoby and Stocklen Families Memorial Fund
The mission of the Jacoby and Stocklen Families Memorial Fund is to provide students the opportunity to serve the community in a lasting and meaningful way, and to structure, nurture, and nourish their leadership skills. Recipients of this scholarship are responsible for leading regular volunteer projects benefiting nonprofits in our campus communities in collaboration with the Center for Campus & Community Engagement, and support additional projects that promote volunteerism within the OHIO community.
The Center for Campus & Community Engagement is committed to the development of mutually beneficial academic, research, and service partnerships that foster resilient communities and life-long engaged citizens. As a high impact experiential learning practice, community engagement has the power to both transform our students and support sustainable social impact in our region, nation and world.
Charitable giving plays a critical role in providing opportunities to students such as community-engaged internships, professional development opportunities, and awards. Giving serves to improve equity in these opportunities by removing participation barriers such as travel costs or living stipends. Donors also enable us to reduce the burden on the community organizations who host these opportunities for our students, by allowing us to offset the costs that otherwise fall on local nonprofits.
