The Big Walnut Education Foundation was founded in 1994 with a $20,000 donation.
From that, we awarded our first $6,000 in scholarships in 1995.
That first donation in 1994 initiated a giving movement in our community.
In 2020, we awarded $92,500 to 73 Big Walnut High School students and alumni.
The Big Walnut Education Foundation Board
We run on transparency and frugality, which means we are completely volunteer driven by a group of individuals who are passionate about Big Walnut youth, their futures, and the future of our community at large.
- To provide funding for special educational needs in the Big Walnut School District.
- To provide loans, grants or scholarships for students or graduates of Big Walnut.
- To act as custodian for current and future memorial funds within the Big Walnut School District.
- To be an ongoing, fund-raising, tax-deductible recipient and administrator of gifts from persons who would like to make a difference and a contribution toward the educational needs and opportunities through the Foundation.
