MSP Reseda Woman's Club Community Scholarship Endowment

The Reseda Woman’s Club Community Scholarship Endowment was created to provide two annual scholarships to be awarded to graduates of Reseda High School and Cleveland High School.

About the Donor:
The Reseda Women’s Club was founded in 1918 and joined the California Federation of Women’s Clubs in 1922. The ladies found an unused 80-by-80-foot building on a poultry farm and had it cut in half and transported to Reseda. It was the beginning of a real estate investment that is still paying dividends in the community. The sale of the club’s building allowed the Reseda Woman’s Club to arrange two $50,000 donations to endow scholarships: one to the Foundation for Pierce College for students of “hands-on” agriculture and veterinary science, and one to the University for its National Center on Deafness. The club also sponsors high school robotics students. This gift perpetuates the Club’s mission to give back and enhance the Reseda Community.
