Fund Name   Description
Featured Funds offer a special opportunity to donate to a fund or the WCCF to support an event, initiative or project.
Margaret Farrow Scholarship Fund Donate The Margaret Farrow Scholarship Fund has been created to honor the life and legacy of former Lieutenant Governor Margaret Farrow. The Margaret Farrow Scholarship Fund was created by WisconsinEye and will be awarded annually to a graduating senior with high integrity interested in journalism, communication studies, civics or political science who lives in Waukesha County. While these majors are given first consideration, other fields of study will be considered if the committee feels they are a viable candidate for public service either in their personal life or their career.
Organization Endowment Funds are established by the named charitable organization as a way for them to plan for a more stable financial future. Contributions of any amount are welcome to help these organizations secure long-term stability.

Knights of Waukesha Scholarship Donate The Knights of Waukesha was founded in 2010 by five former Waukesha High School students. These life-long friends recognized how privileged they were and how important Waukesha was to their growth. In an effort to give back to the city that helped mold their youth, the Knights of Waukesha Scholarship was created. Every year, the five friends choose the most worthy candidate for the one-time $500 scholarship. The Scholarship has evolved over the years. Instead of merely being a scholarship given to the most academically accomplished student, the Knights of Waukesha weigh many different factors, in search of a diamond in the rough. The recipient of the Knights of Waukesha should demonstrate traits of humility, passion, perseverance, strength, and kindness. To apply for the Knights of Waukesha Scholarship, please visit:
