Since 2020, the Falconer Foundation has bestowed $20,000 in scholarships to local students.  Another $10,000 will be awarded in 2024.  If you are a High School senior enrolled in either an Iredell-Statesville school or the Mooresville Graded School district, and you would like to pursue the 2024 scholarship, applications are now being accepted!  Visit the Scholarships page for full details and the application link.

The Falconer Foundation was established in 2020 as a 40th birthday gift for Dennis Cowardin. Dennis’s commitment to arts and service is well-known throughout Mooresville, and his generosity knows no bounds. The foundation was thus started to continue his tradition of giving back to his community. The Falconer name was chosen to honor his mother, to whom he is devoted and credits for his personal ethic and drive to excel and serve.

A dedicated board of directors oversee and operate the Falconer Foundation.  Cortney Frasier, an artist and educator serves as the Director. Dennis Cowardin, is our chair. Stephen Alexander serves as Treasurer.

And Shane Perry rounds out the current board.  Find out more about us!
