Naomi is organising our first fundraiser in Nappanee, Indiana. There will be a whole hog roast and delicious side dishes and desserts prepared by friends and family from the community. The event will be donation-based and all the proceeds will be awarded as a scholarship to a student that grew up Amish.

Please be there to support our efforts and help spread the word to the community. We are looking for gifts to be donated for a raffle ticket give-away. If you would like to donate an item or can help us locate local businesses that are willing to donate, please email Naomi at You can also help out by donating a side dish or dessert for the event. Any help is greatly appreciated!
For those of you waiting to apply for the scholarship – we will start accepting applications on August 4th. By then we’ll be able to give you a solid estimate of how much the scholarship will be. The application period will end on September 4th and we should have the results announced later in the month. We will send out instructions on how to apply in the next week or so.
If you can’t make it to the fundraiser but wish to donate to the fund, you can now donate online here. Thank you to all of you who have already donated, we really appreciate your support!

    Emma, I just wanted to say I love this idea; I think there should be more information out there for Amish descendants who want to pursue a higher education. I was raised Amish in the Nappanee area and decided that I wanted more than the h grade education I had. I got my GED when I was 17, and then went on to receive my AS in Business Administration this past fall. It was a tough trail to blaze, and I had to figure out much of the enrollment processes, FAFSA, etc., by myself, since I did not have any other family members who had ever gone to college. I was fortunate enough to have the support of my family, however, and even though they would have rather seen me go back to the Amish way of life, they accepted my decisions and were supportive all through college. Again, I just wanted to give both you and Naomi a big thank you for what you’re doing, I’m planning on attending the fundraiser in Nappanee this Friday night. I hope to see a big turnout there!
