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 2022, we awarded just over $100,000 to 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 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, fundraising, tax-deductible recipient and administrator of gifts from parties who want to contribute toward the educational needs and opportunities of BWHS graduates through the Foundation.
