She is most excited to learn about the growing packaging industry. Ashly’s hope is to make connections with local businesses and help make her community more creative.

Kaleigh Betz is a second year student enrolled at Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology in their Graphic Communications and Printing Technology program. She has always loved everything art related including drawing and painting, reading, music, photography, etc. When Kaleigh was 16, she found out she could actually pursue a career in graphic design that would let me use her love of art and creativity, professionally. She has pursued this goal ever since, and even created a new goal of possibly having her own graphic design company one day. Kaleigh is trying to focus on one goal at a time, and the litho club scholarship has helped her get a few steps closer to her overall career goal.

The Susquehanna Litho Foundation

The Susquehanna Litho Foundation (SLF) was formed during the 1997-1998 year to increase the Litho Club’s ability to award additional educational opportunities in the graphic arts field. As many people are aware, the Susquehanna Litho Club has awarded up to two scholarships per year for many years. These scholarships were awarded from the funds raised by the club at its monthly dinner meetings, half day seminars and its membership dues. However, as the Susquehanna Litho Club was not a tax exempt foundation, any donations made directly to the club could not be deducted from one’s personal income taxes. This prevented the club from substantially increasing its ability to award additional scholarships.
The Susquehanna Litho Foundation was formed with the sole purpose to establish and maintain a scholarship fund and to award scholarships to students wishing to further their education in the field of graphic arts. The SLF was chartered as a Nonprofit, Private Foundation under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Donations made directly to the Susquehanna Litho Foundation may be partially or totally deductible from an individual’s personal income tax based on their tax status. Please consult your tax advisor for further information concerning your individual tax status.
Please keep the Susquehanna Litho Foundation in your thoughts as you consider the donations you may make throughout this year and the many years to come. Donations may be made in many different ways, a few of which include:

  • A one time donation.
  • A monthly or annual commitment.
  • A one time bequest in one’s will.
  • A designated gift.*
  • A donation of services or goods that the SLF can utilize to further their ability to
    educate individuals in the Graphic Arts field.

Donations should be addressed to:
The Susquehanna Litho Foundation
152 Countryside Lane
Marietta, PA 17547

* A designated gift must be approved by the SLF Board of Governors and is suggested that it be for a minimum of $10,000. The Board is empowered to reject any gifts which it deems inappropriate.
