Tony and Vi Golding Award


The Tony and Vi Golding Award is available to IGNITE DAVIE students who are willing to work hard and go the extra mile to give themselves a better future. The $5,000 award will be applied to tuition, fees and books for two semesters through IGNITE DAVIE. All remaining funds from the award may be used to pay for the student’s food, gas or other necessary expenses each semester.

The spirit of the award is to recognize students who demonstrate the qualities of honesty, integrity and hard work; all qualities Tony and Vi’s parents instilled in them. Students who apply should be thoughtful and innovative; always looking for a better way to do things.

Although IGNITE DAVIE students receive money for tuition, fees and books, Tony and Vi Golding Award recipients will enjoy some additional funds for personal expenses to help them stay in school and be successful; an extra award for those who have made an extra effort toward a successful future!


Students may apply by submitting a letter describing their qualities and goals for their future to the Davie Community Foundation by June 1st annually. Applicant letters will be reviewed by the Goldings and candidates selected for an in-person interview with the Goldings.

Submit application letters to:
Davie Community Foundation
PO Box 546
Mocksville, NC 27028

Deadline: June 1st
