Welcome to The Waypoint Foundation!

At The Waypoint Foundation, we believe strongly in giving back to our community. After all, we have been the recipients of the generosity of many individuals and organizations throughout our lives.

The development of The Waypoint Foundation activities have been based around the specific ways we, the trustees, have been beneficiaries of other people's generosity in our lives. Some of these activities include being recipients of academic scholarships, participating in scholastic chess tournaments, international travel as exchange students, and great experiences in youth scouting programs.

Hayden Malone of Ephrata took the 2024 championship prize having defeated Julian Ochoa Medina in the playoff round. Congratulations to Hayden and all of the other participants for their efforts during the tournament. Additionally, Ephrata, Moses Lake, and Lake Roosevelt High Schools qualified to send teams to the 2024 state high school team championships, and thirteen individual K-6 participants qualified to participate in the 2024 elementary championships.
