Participants at scholarship event

Moraine Park scholarship recipients had the opportunity to meet donors who are helping make their education more affordable.  Scholarship luncheons held in Beaver Dam and West Bend, allowed donors to connect with students who are benefiting from their generous gifts and hear how the scholarships are making a difference in their lives.

The Moraine Park Foundation partners with individuals and businesses to help make education accessible and affordable for Moraine Park students through scholarship assistance. Students in turn bring their education and skills to the workplace and strengthen our local economy.

This year the Foundation awarded more than $169,000 to 180 deserving students.

A gift to the Moraine Park Foundation impacts students, their families, businesses, and our communities. A named scholarship can be created with a gift of $500 and an endowed scholarship with a gift of $10,000.
