Bounty of the Valley Sponsorships

38th Annual Bounty of the Valley!

Education is powerful! It opens doors of opportunity, lifts families out of poverty, and builds economic stability and quality of life for entire communities. Heritage University has been breaking down barriers that keep bright, hardworking individuals from earning their college degrees for over 40 years. When you sponsor the university’s largest fundraising event, the Bounty of the Valley Scholarship Dinner and Paddle Raise, you join us in ensuring that a college education remains accessible to all with the talent and drive to succeed.

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 38 years ago, more than $9 million has been raised, with every dollar going directly to student scholarships!

Thank you to everyone who made our 2023 Scholarship Dinner & Paddle Raise an incredible success!
