At HVCCDE, we are committed to
investing in our communities and the people who call them home.
We're committed to our future, for it is the next generation
that will call the cars on today's dealership lots "classics."
The uniquely American passion that we all share for the
automobile will be passed to our children to be passed again to
theirs. Along the way, many of those children will grow to
find rewarding and challenging careers in the automotive
The Historical Vintage Car Club of Delaware has
made it a part of their mission to help today's young adults
realize that goal.
As a non-profit 501(c)(7)
organization, HVCCDE looks to raise funds through members of our
community and local businesses, along with a portion of revenue
from membership dues to offer a scholarship for a local high
school student (must be a resident of Delaware) to attend
college in the field of automotive education. Our goal is
to raise enough money to offer that student $5,000.
HVCCDE has partnered with Del-One Federal Credit Union to make
this a reality. But that only gets us part of the way
there. In addition to providing the tuition for our
student, we want to raise enough money to give a Tool Grant to
them as well in order to help them in the purchase of their
first set of specialized tools that will be required to take the
course. As many of you know, these tools can be very
expensive, so every little bit helps!
NEED YOUR HELP to get there. You can invest in this future
as well. One hundred percent of your gift will be placed
in the HVCCDE scholarship fund, which means 100% of your gift
will be given to that student.* Because we are a 501(c)(7)
organization, your gift is tax deductible. For a copy of

We are also committed to being a careful
steward of your gift. The board of directors will require
students to apply for the scholarship, present their plan to the
board, provide ongoing proof of their academic progress and
maintain a high GPA while attending the program. Funds
will be disbursed upon the student satisfactorily meeting these
benchmarks. This not only ensures that our investments are
being responsibly paid, but it also allows the organization to
keep an open and ongoing relationship with our scholarship
recipients, which allows us to positively support their goals.
This scholarship is not currently open for applications, as
HVCCDE is still looking to raise the startup funds. It is
our goal to raise an initial $10,000 for two years of
scholarship money ($5,000 given annually), while allowing $5,000
to continuously accrue interest in the scholarship account.
All funds donated to the scholarship will be kept in an
account designated solely for that purpose, apart from the
general operating fund of the club. Upon reaching that
goal, HVCCDE will work with local high schools throughout the
state to make the fund available to students.
We wish to
sincerely thank you for taking the time to consider giving to
this very worthy cause.
Together we can help inspire the next generation of automotive
technicians, parts professionals, and even Detroit CEO's. We can
help them to ensure that today's cars live to become tomorrow's
classics. Let's make a difference together!
