Make a Permanent Impact with an Endowed Scholarship

You don’t have to be a millionaire to create a lasting legacy for students at Washington State Community College. For a minimum of $10,000 you can create an endowed scholarship which will provide a self-sustaining, perpetual source of funding to provide permanent impact on our students and the College.

An endowed scholarship can be created with a lump-sum donation of $10,000 or more, or you may establish the scholarship initially as a cash scholarship and pledge to contribute a designated amount over a specific number of years until the principle reaches the endowment level, at which time the scholarship will be self-sustaining.

Contact the Foundation at 740.885.5706 or foundation@wscc.edu for more information on how you can create this lasting legacy.
