Our scholarship funds help women in our community reach their educational and life goals by attending Southern Oregon University (SOU) or Rogue Community College (RCC). Contributions can be made to our Annual Fund or our Endowment Fund for each institution. Gifts to the Annual Fund are distributed within a given year and Gifts to the Endowment Fund are added to a managed fund that grows in perpetuity – only the interest earned is dispersed annually.

Our Named Scholarship Program honors a contribution or bequest of $50,000 or more. We invite you to make a donation to honor or memorialize someone influential in your life. We currently have two SOU Scholarships that have been named in perpetuity by the Axelrod/Shih Family Trust.
