Sarah Krause’s Science Fund
In memory of their 16-year old daughter, Betsey and John Krause established the Sarah Krause Memorial Fund at the Foundation in 2004 to support Westerville middle and high school science projects and experiences. Approximately $30,000 later, that fund is coming to a close, but the impact will be realized for years to come. Over the years, money was given directly to students for college and program scholarships, in-classroom enrichment activities, equipment to enrich the science curricula, support of Science Olympiad and Robotics Teams, and staff training for STEM education. When first established, the Krause family said, “We want to promote a love of science in Sarah’s memory. She would have liked that.” Mission accomplished–in partnership with the Columbus Jewish Foundation.
