The WASC Donald C. Larsen Foundation is committed to supporting and enhancing leadership opportunities for students by attracting charitable gifts from alumni, community members, corporations, foundations, and other friends of the WASC.
The WASC Governing Board established the WASC Foundation in 1997, when Neenah High School Student council donated $707 to the WASC. They stipulated that the money be used to establish a foundation, with interest from the fund used to achieve two goals.
The first goal is to give more leadership opportunities to students and schools within the WASC. The second goal is to expand our leadership programs to reach those who are not presently being served by the WASC.
In August of 2000, the WASC Foundation was renamed the WASC Donald C. Larsen Foundation in Don’s honor. Don retired as WASC Executive Director after 27 years of service to the Association.
