The Ricky J. Parisian Memorial Scholarship Foundation presents an annual scholarship to a graduating senior from Oneonta High School. Financial assistance is then provided each college semester, through the completion of the initial college degree. Additionally, when possible, grants are provided to support opportunities/programs for children in the Oneonta area.
Since its inception in early 1995, this not-for-profit foundation prides itself as being an avenue that allows the Oneonta community to strengthen itself. This is possible primarily due to the support of and participation in activities of this foundation so the monies collected can be allocated directly back to the community. We have also been blessed through the years in receiving numerous private donations.
2014- Special mention goes out to the following Foundations for acknowledging our important mission with significant financial contributions:
*The Jacob and Eugenie Bucky Memorial Foundation*
**The Miles Hodsdon Vernon Foundation**
***The Dewar Foundation***
