Donate to the Scholarship

We are currently accepting donations for the 2024 FHN Journalism Scholarship.  Anyone donating now for the 2024 scholarship will be eligible to vote on this year’s winner.

The scholarship funds will currently be kept in an account with the Francis Howell School District. It makes the most sense at this point to house it there.

If you would like to donate to the fund, please make checks payable to:
FHN Journalism Scholarship

You can send checks to:
FHN Journalism Scholarship
c/o Aaron Manfull
Francis Howell North High School
2549 Hackmann Road
St. Charles, MO  63303

If you would like to donate to the fund using your credit card, we have that option. Using the FHSD Donation process the full amount of the donation goes into your team school account minus the credit card company’s fee. The credit card service fee that gets charged to businesses who accept credit cards is passed on to the credit card user as the district cannot absorb and pay for these types of fees. The transaction fee from credit card companies is 3.66%. So if someone donates $100, the recipient of the donation would receive $96.43. If they really want to make a $100 donation, they should enter $103.66 in the donation field. You can donate with a credit card by doing the following (you will likely need to make an account on the site if this is your first time donating through this system):

  1. Go to this link.
  2. If they are on the webstore homepage, they will do the following …
  3. Click on High Schools
  4. Francis Howell North
  5. Journalism
  6. Then choose Alumni Scholarship or Program Donation

After you donate, feel free to email Mr. Manfull to let him know to keep an eye out for the donation.

If you’d like to donate by Venmo, we have two former alumni of the program who have agreed to collect funds and then turn them over to the program on March 1. To use this option:

  • Feel free to Venmo Andrea Waner at @Andrea-Waner or Miranda Judd @mirandajudd9 at .
  • Please note in the transaction line that it’s for the FHN Journalism Alumni Scholarship and give your name if it’s not evident from your handle
  • Feel free to email Mr. Manfull and let him know you chose this option so he can add you to the list of donors and keep an eye out for the donation when it comes in.
  • Andrea and Miranda will be tracking everything that comes in and sending me their donation report and funds March 1.

All donations to the fund are tax deductible.

Our funding drive this year will go through Feb. 29, 2024. Contributions can be made at any time.

If you donate $50 or more…

If you donate $50 or more to the scholarship, you are eligible to get a gray Pub Hub t-shirt like the one all staffers have been given since 2001. You can have it as a backup on hand or replace one that has seen better days. If you make a donation of $50 or more and would like a t-shirt, please contact Aaron Manfull at with the size you’d like and he will send you one.
