The Lee Dodge Scholarship Fund

Mr. Lee Dodge possessed three great loves: his family, the United States Marine Corp, and music. He was known for bursting into song and making up lyrics to fit the situation. His generosity of spirit and love of music live on through by funding a performing arts scholarship that helps local high school students pursue of their love of music. 

The Marilyn Dodge Scholarship Fund

Mrs. Marilyn Dodge was a go-getter who spent countless hours giving back to her community of Mount Dora through her involvement with Artisans on Fifth. The Marilyn Dodge Scholarship Fund continues her legacy of involvement and caring for her local community. Mrs. Dodge’s love of life and passion for creating and self-expression through art endures through the Marilyn Dodge visual art scholarship winners, past and present.

The Charles & Mary McLin Foundation

The Charles & Mary McLin Foundation is a private foundation established in 1999 by Charles B. and Mary M. McLin. Mr. & Mrs. McLin strongly believed in supporting the local community and in the power of education to better this community. Their passion was furthering youth education. Their passion lives on through their generous grant which will help the WCFA scholarship winners continue their education in the visual and performing arts.
