Groups We Help
It is part of our mission and a big part of our joy to support local organizations. All of our WDCC members are volunteers. In addition, many members serve on multiple boards, committees, and projects.
If your non-profit organization is in need of funds for a specific project, please use the form link below and follow the instructions given. These donations are funded by the events we hold throughout the year. Our fundraisers have been very successful thanks to great community support!
Scholarship Fund (MMSF)
The WDCC Member Memorial Scholarship Fund (MMSF) is designed to honor our deceased members. Scholarships will be awarded through the WDCC MMSF in $1,000 increments. The scholarship will be given in the names of those members who are deceased and are being honored through donations. Recipients are deserving students attending Muskegon Community College, Baker College, or a Technical School in Muskegon.
WDCC awards multiple $1000 scholarships annually to Muskegon County students who wish to attend Muskegon Community College, Baker College, or a technical school in Muskegon County. These scholarships are open to high school seniors or students going into their second year at Muskegon Community College or Baker College. Applications are available on this website beginning in mid October with the deadline in mid March.
For applications, please visit our Home Page, Scholarship Forms and download all three (3) forms. (These forms will not be available once recipients have been chosen for a given year.)
Our Item-of-the-Month Program is on a strictly volunteer basis. Several times a year our members generously donate small items that are requested by local charities. They may be school supplies, snacks for after school programs, or even pet supplies. December is always our Adopt-a-Senior Program and August is always our Member Memorial Fund.

What's the difference between the WDCC Scholarships and the Member Memorial Scholarships?
- The WDCC Scholarships are given to young people in our community who will be attending Baker College, Muskegon Community College or a technical/trade school in the county.
- The prestigious Member Memorial Scholarships (MMS) are awarded to top candidates who demonstrated a desire to improve our community by giving back through community service.
