Since 1947, The Massillon Educational Loan Foundation has existed to provide financial aid to qualified high school or college students in Western Stark County who have a desire for higher education. Western Stark County includes students who reside in Massillon, Perry, Tuslaw, Fairless, Jackson and Northwest school districts and attend those schools or accredited private schools in those areas.
The Foundation is an Ohio non-profit corporation. The Board of Trustees serves as a totally volunteer group. All monies are used to fund loans. The major sources of support have been provided by the repayment of student loans, memorials, estate, and special gifts, as well as, the wise investments of those monies.
