Cars get us where we’re going, but it’s the work we do along the way that truly matters. The Walser Foundation is committed to supporting the next generation of risk-takers, innovators, and change-makers through grants and sponsorships for education and career training.
Walser’s mission is to increase access to high-quality education and career-training programs in the Minneapolis-St. Paul Metro and Wichita, KS communities. Walser commits 5 percent of all pre-tax earnings to the Walser Foundation, which funds hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants and sponsorships annually for our local communities.
From pre-kindergarten to post-secondary, every education program we sponsor is focused on creating a brighter future for all children. We believe every person should have the opportunity to reach their full potential and access to quality education makes this possible.
Through Walser grants, we’re proud to support programs like the Pathways Curriculum of District 191 and Burnsville High School. Within the school’s automotive program, students can gain hands-on automotive experience and find connections to jobs, internships and networking opportunities at various Walser dealerships.
In addition to grant making and sponsorships, the Walser Foundation awards high school scholarships to graduating seniors who make a difference in their community via civic engagement and volunteerism. We are proud to award these scholarships in each community where we operate a Walser business.
