Scholarship Dinner 2021

Join Us for Our 35th Annual (Virtual) Bounty of the Valley Scholarship Dinner!

Heritage University has been changing lives and building communities for 39 years. You can help ensure that college degrees remain accessible for all with the talent and drive to succeed by supporting the university’s largest fundraising event, the Bounty of the Valley Scholarship Dinner and Paddle Raise. 

This Yakima Valley premier event is dedicated to raising scholarship funds for Heritage University students. It is a celebration of the many talented men and women who are transforming their lives and our communities, and of the generous individuals whose contributions make it possible for them to earn their degrees. Since its inception 35 years ago, more than $8 million has been raised, with every dollar going directly to student scholarships!

Meet One of Our Scholarship Recipients

It is the people who are the true Bounty of the Valley- our generous donors, our faculty and staff, and of course, our students.

Maria Soto is one of our talented and deserving students who earned her degree (Bachelor of Social Work, 2020) at Heritage University. For those of you who watched last year, you’ll recognize Maria as our student speaker.

At Heritage University, we believe that a college education should be accessible to anyone with the talent and drive to pursue a degree — regardless of economics, culture or geographic locations. Maria is one the of many incredible minds who have proven that access to opportunity can make a lifetime of difference.
