Western Washington University Huxley College of the Environment
We are so close to completing our goal. Please consider donating to the scholarship fund to benefit a student at Huxley College of the Environment at WWU. The Chuckanut District of the Washington State Federation of Garden Clubs started this fund in 1971. We need your help to bring the balance to $25,000 and become an enduring legacy. The fund is currently approaching $21,000. Will you please help?
When Chuckanut District became inactive, the remaining funds in the treasury created the beginning of a scholarship fund at WWU. The club committed to bring the fund balance to $25,000 within five years to make the scholarship an enduring legacy. The scholarship was previously called the Mary Ruggles Scholarship. This scholarship was the first created to benefit a student in the newly established Huxley College of the Environment many years ago.
