WAHHI Grant Recipients & Youth Award Winners

Founded in 1961, The Women’s Association of Hilton Head Island is an influential group of 750+ women who are active in civic, cultural and philanthropic activities in the Bluffton and Hilton Head community.  

In May 2018, WAHHI awarded six grants to local nonprofits including:

The Children’s Center,

Volunteers in Medicine,

Family Promise,

Special Olympics South Carolina,

The Literacy Center,

 The Children’s Relief Fund.


Additionally, WAHHI recognized outstanding community service of five local high school seniors with financial awards. 

In over 30 years of Youth Awards, the program has morphed to recognize local outstanding graduating high school seniors who excel at community service. The number and amount of awards presented each year depend on the amount of money available in the WAHHI treasury at the end of the fiscal year.

Well over 100 students have been recognized since the program’s inception in 1980, and thousands of dollars have been awarded.

The Youth Community Service Awards were presented to:

Kalaylah Chisolm – Hilton Head Island High School,

Meredith Inglis – Hilton Head Christian Academy,

Elizabeth Rhoads – Bluffton High School,

Audrey Robinson – Hilton Head Christian Academy 

Madeline Wallin – Bluffton High School.
