One of the ways DWSOC seeks to promote lasting change in our community is by supporting, fostering and mentoring young Democrats. As Benjamin Disraeli wisely said, “The youth of a nation are the trustees of posterity”. We believe by encouraging and recognizing our local young Democrats we are promoting and protecting Democratic ideals in our country and in the world – now and into the future.
The DWSOC Scholarship fund was established through the generous donations of our founding scholarship fund patrons. Please help us continue our work in support of young Democrats by contributing to the DWSOC Scholarship Fund today. Your contributions go directly to local students who are awarded scholarships.
We are now accepting donations for the Class of 2019 DWSOC Scholarship fund.
