Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

Our goal is to raise enough funds to fund this scholarship in perpetuity and to expand the Scholarship to additional schools in our area and eventually expand to all 50 states.

Continue fundraising events with the support of our local community and contact schools in our area to inform the staff of the Scholarship's goals to expand to include them.

In just a few short years we have received over $50,000 in contributions. Our hard working volunteers along with our growing assets will help us do a great deal of good in our community and beyond.

The 5th Annual Run Fast Winged 5k will be held on August 17, 2019. For more information please visit our website: http://dustinhuffmanmemorialscholarship.org/RunFast%205K.htm or our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/RunFast5K/
