August 25, 2017 – Washington Co., WI – For over half a century, Doug and Sharon Ziegler worked to make our community a better place through volunteerism and philanthropy. Their legacy of compassion, dedication and purpose will continue to inspire future generations of non-profit leaders.
The Ziegler Leadership Scholarship (up to $5,000 annually) will be awarded to a nonprofit executive or an emerging leader to expand and enhance their leadership development through continuing education, training, and/or certification.
United Way of Washington County believes agency success starts with strong and capable leadership. As we expect more measurable and impactful community program outcomes and evaluations, we recognize the need to further equip local nonprofits for excellence.
This scholarship is an opportunity to build talent development and nonprofit capacity in an ever-changing environment.
“Doug and I have always believed the United Way agencies were key in keeping our community vital, strong, and moving forward to meet the needs of our growing community,” said Sharon Ziegler. “In order to achieve that goal, we need strong leadership in all our non-profit organizations. We are honored to have this Leadership Scholarship named after us.”
