Welcome to Vashon Island sign.jpg

The Small Business Scholarship Fund

Will you join us? Small Business Sign-Up

Smaller businesses are coming together to participate in Vashon's decades-long scholarship tradition by pooling donations with others in their industry. The goal? To inspire Vashon grads who have shown a knack for all things hands-on and entrepreneurial as they plan their post-high-school path.

These anchor businesses invite you to join them. Not seeing your industry here? We might be working on it--send us your ideas.​

How much should I donate?

That’s up to you! A leadership donation of $500 is wonderful. If 4 businesses donate $250 each, that makes a nice-sized scholarship, and 8 businesses donating $125 each can do the same thing.

There is no annual commitment - though we think you'll love being able to inspire a new class of students every year.

Businesses who can commit to $1,000-2,000 each year can either participate with their fellow small businesses or create their own custom scholarship.
