This fund awards scholarships each year to outstanding graduates of East Aurora and West Aurora High Schools.

The fund was created in 1968 and established as an endowment in 1989.

A lifelong Auroran, Mr. Deuchler (1889-1978) founded Walter E. Deuchler Associates, Inc., an engineering firm in Aurora.  He also was city engineer of Aurora for sixteen years.

Mr. Deuchler was a director of numerous civic organizations.  He served as a director of the Community Foundation for sixteen years and as a senior or emeritus director for three years prior to his death.

As the Foundation’s scholarship chairman, Mr. Deuchler developed a strong interest in recognizing academically talented students who do not necessarily have financial need.
