Make A Difference. Support A Dream.

 

Contribute to our two scholarship funds and support the leaders of tomorrow. By helping them reach their educational goals, we empower them to succeed. Anyone wishing to make a contribution is encouraged to do so!

In 2015, WASDA began offering two scholarships through the WASDA Scholarship Fund. The WASDA Scholarship is available to the children of all WASDA member companies (both Distributor and Associate). 
The Matt Stager Memorial Scholarship (for children of Distributor members only) was established in honor of former WASDA President Matt Stager, who served from 1985-1986 and passed away on November 8, 1994, after a courageous battle with cancer. More information about this scholarship and the application are available here. Applications are now available and the deadline to apply is March 31st.
Contributions can be made to either one or both of the scholarships: the WASDA Scholarship and/or the Matt Stager Memorial Scholarship. Contributions can be made using this contribution form. All donations are fully tax deductible.
Download the contribution form here. Companies and individuals who donate $500 or more will be recognized at the 3rd Annual WASDA Scholarship Fund 5k Run/Walk at the Annual Meeting in February!
Children of distributor member employees are encouraged to apply to both scholarship funds, but can only be awarded one. If you have any questions, call (215) 320-3882.
