Purpose and Activities

To provide education for students of Polish ancestry. This is done through endowed scholarship programs at specific private colleges and universities in Minnesota. The Wasie family also had a strong desire to help people living with schizophrenia, arthritis, and cancer as well as to help children living with chronic illness, disabling conditions, or terminal illness. Serving these populations is done by providing grant support to non-profit organizations that work with these particular conditions.
