Al McWilliams Memorial Scholarship Fund

Our Mission

While Mayor of Plainfield from 1997 to 2005, Al McWilliams displayed his commitment to leadership by strengthening his community, and serving its residents.


In light of the former mayor’s untimely death in 2007, the McWilliams family aims to celebrate his legacy by offering financial support to a college-bound Plainfield High School graduate.


The Al McWilliams Memorial Scholarship Fund seeks to identify and support Plainfield High School graduates who exemplify dedication to leadership, public service, and community building.


This monetary award will help alleviate the recipient of any financial burden incurred by the college or university he or she attends.


College is expensive, but it can be the most important and life-changing investment you ever make.  The AMMSF aims to alleviate financial pressure for future leaders.

Special Thanks: 2012 Fundraising

Last year, you contributed to the first annual Mayor Al McWilliams Memorial Scholarship Fund drive. As a result of your commitment to supporting Plainfield’s youth, $2000 was raised in a matter of weeks.


Without your contribution, the AMMSF’s first scholarship recipient would not have the additional support she needs and deserves. Thank you!

Goal:  Raise $5000 by June 1, 2013!
