4PeteSake offers financial assistance to residents from the River Valley School District who find themselves in circumstances, through no fault of their own, for which assistance is needed. To date, most recipients have had medically related needs and this has become a focus of the organization. 4PeteSake’s Mission: 4PeteSake is organized for the purpose of providing relief to distressed River Valley residents in the form of assistance to persons with extraordinary financial needs who are unable, through no fault of their own, to provide for themselves.
HOW TO APPLY

Applications can also be picked up at Arcadia Books in downtown Spring Green.
THE SELECTION PROCESS
All applications are reviewed by the 4PeteSake Committee. The 4PeteSake Committee reserves the right to determine the number of recipients to be funded and the amount that each recipient will receive. Each year’s allocation will vary depending on 4PeteSake’s financial position. Due to the limited financial resources of 4PeteSake, all eligible applicants may not receive funding. Priority will be given to those eligible applicants demonstrating the greatest need as determined by the 4PeteSake Committee with the information available at the time the decision is made.
4PeteSake does not release funds directly to recipients; rather, the organization allocates an amount of assistance that is available to be used for the recipient’s financial assistance. Payments are made directly to the recipient’s creditors.
Applicants who do not receive funding will remain anonymous. Recipients must authorize 4Petesake, Inc. to use their name, photo and circumstances for promotional purposes. Recipients will be asked to participate in press coverage and other promotional activities as their health and circumstances allow.
