"Nine-tenths of education is encouragement."
- Anatole France

We are honored to support donors leaving a legacy through a Scholarship Fund.
Because of our community's generosity, Skagit students are assisted and encouraged to pursue their dreams and higher educational goals.

You can seed a customized Scholarship Fund for as little as $10,000. Give me a call today to learn how to establish your Fund at SCF.

"Overall, I have hope for the future and I know that I will go on to do great things for myself, my family, and my community. Not only can I see myself shaping and improving my life into one that I am passionate about, but I can also see myself helping shape others' lives into ones that they are passionate about too."
- Allen Lowe Memorial Scholarship recipient, Mount Vernon High School Class of 2022, future University of Washington student

"I learned that I will always have people around me that love me and support me, which is something I'm grateful for because I know some people don't have that. I'm grateful for my family and all the support they give me."
- Roger & Lea Rae Reep Scholarship recipient, Mount Vernon High School Class of 2022, future Washington State University student

"Although my family has had to overcome many disadvantages, I still feel I have a lot to accomplish in my life. I have always been someone that likes to fix things and help people the best I can. I want to be someone that can affect the world in a greater way and help in any way possible, this is one of the biggest factors that has influenced my choices."
- Otto Walberg Memorial Scholarship recipient, Sedro-Woolley High School Class of 2022, future University of Washington student 
The Anacortes Women's Giving Circle is a dynamic, passionate group of women who care deeply about improving lives in our community.
In the fall of 2021, they gathered for the third year to pool their donations and individual generosity into a collective grantmaking fund, totaling $26,700.

In early May, each donor voted for her favorite project proposal - one vote per donor. Based on this voting, the 2021-2022 Anacortes Women's Giving Circle grants were awarded to eight local nonprofits.

"We are delighted that this grassroots collective has been able to support so many special projects in our community while the generosity has grown each year. It has been fun to come together as friends and make new friends all bound by a common goal; women desiring to enhance our community. All are welcome!"
- Jeannette, Member of the AWGC Leadership Team

The Skagit Community Foundation is proud to support and administrate this meaningful philanthropic effort each year.
