The Inskeep Scholarship Fund was established by the generous donations made by the late Jerry Inskeep who deeply appreciated the helping hand that he received enabling him to attend college.  Jerry wanted to ‘pay his gift forward’ to the youth of our community.  He left a legacy through the San Juan Island Community Foundation that will provide a permanent source of funds for the education of our island’s children.

The John Volk Memorial Scholarship remembers one of our finest citizens who served us all through his tireless volunteer service, both on the ground and in the air.

The Community Foundation serves as a nonprofit philanthropic umbrella organization helping donors, nonprofits and public organizations to achieve their goals through direct grants, organizational assistance and philanthropic resource management.  For further information please contact us at PO Box 1352, Friday Harbor, WA 98250.   The office is located in the Technology Center, Mullis St. Friday Harbor; Phone 378-1001.
