In 2020-21, we distributed $50,000 from the Wildflower Fund (Wildflower Run registrations, corporate sponsorships, and individual donations) in support of education and equity for women and girls. Due to the Covid-19 virus, some of our programming (such as Tech Trek and the National Conference for Women College Leaders (NCCWSL) were turned into virtual programs. The reduced expense associated with these virtual events enabled us to redirect $5,000 of or funds to the Student Emergency Fund at Gavilan College. Funds raised were directed to the following:
Provide scholarships to high school girls graduating from Morgan Hill Unified School District (MHUSD) schools.
NEW: Provide a “Fritts Family STEM Scholarship” to college women from Morgan Hill or Gilroy who are already in college and planning to graduate from a 4-year school with a STEM (science, technology, engineering or math) degree.
This is an endowed scholarship providing a $1000 scholarship each year for 10 years.
