    Spice Fund

    Bainbridge Self Storage presents SPICE (Saving Pets in Crisis Everywhere) and The Fergus Fund. We are a small group of people who are taking action to be of some assistance in the event of a natural disaster. The supplies that we gather will not save the world but they will save and help some community. The monies we raise are not staggering amounts but those monies will allow us to purchase animal food and medical supplies when we need to. We are one small group of people but we hope that we can spread out into other communities to form SPICE groups in Poulsbo, Suquamish, Sklallam, Silverdale, Bremerton, Port Orchard. Our aim is simple. To assist with Saving Pets In Crisis Everywhere.

    Scholarship
    Bremerton High School Pay it Forward Scholarship

    A scholarship specifically for an underrepresented segment of Bremerton High School grads--those with 2.5 - 3.5 GPAs, who are low-income and among the first in their family to seek further education at college/trade school. We believe these students are viable and have great potential, yet they often are overlooked by other scholarship associations.

    BHS PIF scholarship is unique: We give $14K awards. We require each recipient to Pay It Forward by giving 15 hours of community service each year. Character/ motivation are more important to us than perfect GPAs.

    Nicole (Lyle) Tranilla Memorial Scholarship Need-based scholarship of $500 or more for Central Kitsap female graduating senior pursuing degree in electronics, electrical engineering, computer science, or a related field.
