“Train up a child in the way he should go…” Proverbs 22:6
WASFO was created to assist in furthering the development of our high school graduates through the obtaining and distribution of scholarship funds for college education. Since its creation in the academic year 1995-1996, WASFO has distributed over 200 scholarships to qualified applicants that are active members of West Angeles. Our youth are some of the brightest in the country and for this reason we want to help them succeed in their pursuit of higher learning as we help to alleviate some of their financial pressures.
How do we fulfill our mission?
Each year we hold a Scholarship Drive and various other events to raise funds for our recipients. However, tax-deductible donations are accepted on a continuous basis. Please make checks payable to West Angeles Church (in the memo write: WASFO). Feel free to mail your donations to West Angeles Church, 3045 Crenshaw Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90016, Attn: WASFO. If you have any questions please contact Deacon John Wilson at (323) 733-8300 x2628. Thank you in advance for your contribution.
