The Council 75 scholarship fund, named for Oregon Health Sciences University Local 328 member, organizer, and activist, Donna Danner, was established in 2001. The Danner Scholarships are awarded annually in the amount of two $1,000 scholarships to a Council 75 member, and five $750 scholarships awarded to Council 75 members in good standing (active, laid off, retired, or disabled), or spouses (including life partners and their children), children, stepchildren, or grandchildren. The $750 scholarships are renewable up to five years provided recipients meet the qualifying requirements.

In 2008, a scholarship was established in the name of our late sister, Cornelia Valentine Murphy, by her brother Paul Murphy. Cornelia was employed as a Political Organizer for Council 75. There will be one $500 scholarship awarded annually to a Council 75 member in good standing (active, laid off, retired, or disabled), or spouses (including life partners and their children), children, stepchildren, or grandchildren.
