The Bill Wallis Charitable Foundation was created on March 15, 2001 when our Company’s Founder, Bill Wallis, died of melanoma. The initial funds for the foundation were generated from donations from over 400 employees, business associates, family and friends upon Bill’s death. On-going funds are generated from many of those same individuals as well as many more who contribute to and participate in the Bill Wallis Annual Golf Tournament, as well as contributions given in honor, in celebration or in memory of someone. The funds are used to award scholarships to Wallis Companies’ employees, their children, Wallis Companies’ dealers or their children or a Wallis Companies vendor.
Scholarship applications are due by March 15th each year. For more information about the Foundation or the scholarship, please contact Laura Wallace at (636) 549-1601.Scholarship Application
