The Milton-Freewater Area Foundation was founded in 1962 for the purpose of creating a trust for charitable and educational uses in our community. The Foundations Distribution Committee consists of 6 local members and the trust is managed by Baker Boyer Bank.

It is through the generous donations of local families to the MFAF that the Foundation has been able to give out over a million dollars in scholarships and grants to recipients in the Walla Walla Valley.

The Foundation is responsible for at least 9 different scholarship funds for high school seniors heading to college.
