About the Foundation
The WEDC Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit located in Huntsville, Alabama, formed in 1998 by the 501(c) 6 non-profit, founder organization Women’s Economic Development Council (WEDC).
In its first year, the WEDC Foundation celebrated with one Scholar. As of August 2019 that number has risen to over 170 scholars benefiting from the WEDC Foundation program. The success of the WEDC Foundation is thanks to folks who help as Sponsors, Donors, Community Partners, Mentors and Volunteers. Our Scholars, Board of Directors and staff all play key roles.
WEDC Foundation’s Flexible Financial Assistance Program helped me afford and focus on my studies so I could become a Registered Nurse at Madison Hospital.
