Dear Friends and Family,
This holiday season sadly marks two years since we said goodbye to our amazing Cody. His enthusiasm for life never shined brighter than during the holidays, his favorite season. As Cody lived, may he also be remembered as a promoter of positive change. The Cody Petzold Rainbow Endowed Scholarship will advance change by assisting other vibrant young leaders like Cody. It is our wish to commemorate the anniversary of his passing not with sorrow, but with hope of completing the final steps of his scholarship and creating a positive legacy. With your help, we CAN make the Cody Petzold Rainbow Endowed Scholarship a reality by Christmas. Together, we CAN give the ultimate gift of helping others!!!
Sincerely, David and Susan Petzold
This Christmas marks two years since we said goodbye to Cody. Please help us honor his memory by making The Cody Petzold Rainbow Endowment a reality!
The Cody Petzold Rainbow Endowed Scholarship was established to honor the memory of Cody Dylan Petzold, an outstanding scholar, student leader, mentor and proponent for equality. Cody embraced diversity and saw the rainbow as a symbol of acceptance. Through this scholarship that rainbow lights the way for other young leaders to make a positive difference and affect change.
The Cody Petzold Rainbow Scholarship and will be awarded to students with strong leadership skills who demonstrate LGBT+ promotion and awareness.
Your gift will help endow this scholarship so that it can be given in perpetuity to future scholars who also share Cody's passions and beliefs.
Through the help of friends and family, the Cody Petzold Rainbow Endowed Scholarship has raised over $23,000 towards the $26,000 needed. Your donation can help us reach our goal this December so we may begin awarding the scholarship to a worthy student next September.
