Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to raise enough funds to fund this scholarship in perpetuity and to expand the Scholarship to additional schools in our area and eventually expand to all 50 states.

Continue fundraising events with the support of our local community and contact schools in our area to inform the staff of the Scholarship's goals to expand to include them.

In just a few short years we have received over $50,000 in contributions. Our hard working volunteers along with our growing assets will help us do a great deal of good in our community and beyond.

Through the efforts of our dedicated board members and volunteers from the community, the 5th annual Run Fast Winged 5K was held on August 16, 2019.

Online registration links and forms as well as sponsorship information can be found on our website:

Proceeds from our annual 5K support the Scholarship.

The 2020 award marks 10 years of giving to seniors who are making a difference in the world through their outstanding character and willingness to help others.
