Our Inspiration

The Lillie J. Walton Foundation was founded in 2003.  We set forth to honor the memory and legacy of our dear mother.  She was a lady of great integrity, wisdom, and a strong advocate of education. Her greatest legacy was the love and support she gave to her children, grandchildren, and community. The foundation will support and promote the success of single parents and the education of underserved students through scholarships and other resources.

The Lillie J. Walton Foundation will make available an undergraduate scholarship to one eligible graduating Senior from Hamilton, Manassas, or Booker T. Washington High Schools.  The recipient will receive a scholarship for his/her first academic year as a full-time student at an accredited institution. Other financial, community, and educational resources will be offered annually.
