NEW! WDSRA Scholarship Endowment
Everyone needs to have access to programs regardless of their financial challenges.
The ability to pay should never limit someone’s access to special recreation.
ANNOUNCING… the WDSRA Scholarship Endowment with a fund balance goal of $750,000.
Once in place, that figure and the earnings it produces, will fulfill our typical annual scholarship need and more in perpetuity. The goal is to be fully funded by 2026, which coincides with WDSRA’s 50th anniversary.
Yes, it is an ambitious long-range, but worthy, goal. It is a sustainable way to meet the needs of current and future families and participants.
We will be working diligently to cultivate partners who share in our vision. In fact, we already have several commitments. One of our amazing partners – the Wintrust group of banks represented by the local Wheaton Bank & Trust charter – has already committed to a donation of $25,000. Additionally, more than $55,000 was raised at our 2023 Bash.
We are off to a great start! But we still need your help!
