What is the Foundation?

The James K. and Arlene L. Adams Foundation offers college tuition assistance to students graduating from specific high schools in eastern and central Cumberland County and Perry County, Pennsylvania.

The Foundation supports and encourages students who also value giving back to their community, take an active role in their faith, and take personal responsibility for becoming productive citizens.

Success for the James K. Adams and Arlene L. Adams Foundation is found in the way our students "pay it forward."    When tuition loans are repaid to the Adams Foundation every dollar is used to provide new tuition loans for eligible students. The successful careers and ability of the students to give similar assistance to new students increases the ability of the James K. Adams and Arlene L. Adams Foundation to achieve the goals of our founders.
