The most common way to award money to students for their education is through a scholarship program.
Programs vary in size, number or awards, and award recurrance. Small programs can be local and have 1-10 winners,
with awards ranging from $100-$1,000. Larger national programs range on average from $1,000-$10,000 per award.
Many companies offer scholarships to their employees and their children.
Company employee incentives vary based on the customized program. This is a great employee incentive
and a tax deduction for the company. Infinity Giving Works enables this process to be objective and
increases the credibility of the selection process. This also removes the burden of a company having to manage the administrative workload
associated with this incentive. We offer a full-service scholarship program management.
