10.30.23 – Donor Appreciation Event at the Historic Sea Gull Cottage

The Women’s Red Apple Foundation of Palm Beach County recently hosted a Donor Appreciation Event at the Historic Sea Gull Cottage in Palm Beach. The Foundation seeks to uplift and inspire women in the community who are seeking higher education by providing scholarships and mentoring. This special evening was to recognize and honor individuals and organizations who have supported us and sponsored scholarships in the past.

In addition to the donors, several scholarship recipients were in attendance to demonstrate their gratitude and to share how the awards have assisted them. Their testimonies helped donors to truly understand the impact of their contributions.

The Foundation raises funds throughout the year through various events, culminating in the Annual Scholarship Luncheon in June. Funds also come from donations, endowment, businesses, and individuals that support recipients over multiple years.

The Foundation provides scholarships for both graduating high seniors and those seeking education later in life – over the past 19 years, 74% of scholarship recipients are between 18-22 years of age and 26% are 23-40+. This year a record number of scholarships in the amount of $60,000 were awarded to 27 women who reside in Palm Beach County. The Foundation has set a goal of $75,000 for 2024.
