The Richard Wayne Pollard Education Foundation (RWPEF) is organized and operated to provide scholarships to the youth of Wood, Brazos, Burleson, Robertson, Grimes, Leon, Madison and Washington counties of Texas.
Since its founding in 2011, the RWPEF has been conducting local fundraising events in Bryan, Texas over the past three years to increase endowment funds. In both August of 2012 and 2013 the board of directors conducted a BBQ lunch fundraiser, and then in August 2014 the board of directors hosted a sit down dinner with live music and a silent auction. As of now, the RWPEF plans to continue similar fundraising events every August in the upcoming years in order to raise more money for scholarship distribution within the community.
In between fundraising events the RWPEF plans to promote scholarship availability and select two outstanding students at the start of each academic year to receive an educational scholarship.
