HEARTS FOR COMMUNITY SERVICE SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION

Warrick Dunn Charities, Inc. (WDC) is committed to improving lives, instilling hope, and inspiring communities. Over the span of 21 years, our organization has grown from our flagship program, Homes for the Holidays, a program that assists single parent families with their transition into first time homeownership, to an organization that also provides additional resources to help families thrive financially, educationally and socially.

WDC’s Hearts for Community Service Scholarship is a financial, need-based award, which supports students who are active volunteers in their local communities and are attending a post-secondary institution.
