about davis memorial foundation
The Davis Memorial Foundation operates under the auspices of the Western States Roofing Contractors Association (WSRCA). Giving back to the community has always been a key value of the WSRCA. Over the years it donated more than $30,000 to the Ronald McDonald House.
In 1995 WSRCA formalized its charitable endeavors by establishing the Davis Memorial Foundation in memory of Larry and Mary Davis. Committed to promoting education, particularly as it relates to the construction industry, the Davis Memorial Foundation operates under the auspices of the Western States Roofing Contractors Association. A Board of Trustees, whose members serve three-year terms, oversees the Foundation's operations.
How do we get our funding?
The foundation is funded through individual and corporate contributions and by three annual fundraising events held during the WSRCA convention each year.
Who is eligible for scholarships?
Anyone who is interested in furthering his or her education is eligible for a Davis Memorial Foundation scholarship. However priority is given to family and employees of roofing industry members and to applicants who seek a degree or training related to the construction profession.
