About Skagit County Scholarships

In 1991, a little group of civic leaders in Anacortes foresaw a community foundation that could fulfill their hopes and dreams for a performing arts hub. A concert fundraiser featuring Burl Ives and friends made the funds to establish the first endowment for a performing arts center that would become McIntyre Hall.

Supporters also established endowments for libraries, parks, museums, scholarships, and their favored nonprofit organizations.
