High School Mini Grants Program

Reaching out to help local schools is a natural step for Central Willamette--giving back is part of our culture and our community involvement reflects how much we love the communities we live in.

In 2010, Central Willamette created a fund specifically designed to help pay for select scholastic activities, called the Scholastic Activities Grants Program. Each year, we select local high schools in our service area to participate in the grant application process. 

School activity groups from the selected schools can contact their activities directors or Central Willamette to obtain an application.

For more information, get in touch with Marketing Manager Erik Fedler at (541) 917-6896 or via email.
