Michael Wassmer Foundation Scholarship

The Michael Wassmer Foundation is a nonprofit that was founded in September of 2022, shortly after Mike passed away from an undiagnosed heart condition. Mike was a beloved husband, father, son, brother, friend and community leader.

He is dearly missed, but his family is proud to continue his philanthropic legacy in Virginia by granting significant need-based scholarships to high school seniors in the City of Richmond, and the counties of Chesterfield, Hanover and Henrico. Wassmer Foundation Scholars will reflect Mike’s core values of resilience, integrity, compassion and determination.

Deadline extended to April 1, 2024.
