WEST ORANGE SCHOLARSHIP FUND (WOSF)
In 1923, a group of dedicated West Orange citizens organized the West Orange Scholarship Fund. They recognized the need to provide financial assistance to deserving West Orange graduates who might otherwise be deprived of the opportunity of continuing their education. The organization and the need have continued uninterrupted through the ensuing years and both are very much in evidence today. The West Orange Scholarship Fund has three sources of income: earnings from its permanent endowment, generous contributions from the community in connection with our Trustees Annual Appeal and receipts from funds raised by the West Orange Council of PTAs including the sales of Tribute Cards by the PTAs at every school in town.
The first scholarship was awarded in 1925, and since then, through periods of prosperity, depression or recession, the Fund has never missed a year of awarding aid to deserving students. The Fund awarded a record $136,650 to 118 deserving West Orange High School graduates on Senior Awards Night last year. This year's award ceremony will be held on June 2nd, 2022. To date, the Fund has awarded over $1,600,000 in cumulative scholarships.
The Fund is a qualified 501(c)(3) organization (tax ID #22-6033022).
