A Journey Worth Celebrating!

In 1984, two visionaries, Marjorie Marugg-Wolfe and Ralph Nesson, set out on a mission to be the guiding light for single parents struggling to make ends meet. Armed with a humble sum of $3,450 in scholarships, the Single Parent Scholarship Funds of Benton County and Washington County breathed life into fifteen families during that inaugural semester.

Fast forward to the present day, and our journey has evolved into an awe-inspiring tale. By the year 2024, we’ve proudly bestowed a staggering $17.8 million upon 21,435 resilient single parents in the four-county area.

Our impact has grown exponentially over the last forty years, creating waves of positive change. Now, as we stand at this milestone, we want YOU to be a part of the celebration!

Come join us for a series of upcoming events that seamlessly weave together our four-decade legacy with the wonderful individuals who have graced our journey, both in the past and present.

We would love to hear your story of what SPSFNWA has meant to you over the years. Drop us a line at and let your voice become a part of our narrative.

Are you in the mood to celebrate? You can be a superhero to single parents by supporting them. Your contribution can make a world of difference!
