We support our Community through Student Scholarships

Because rising costs have closed the door to higher education for many students in our community, we are asking for your generous support of our efforts.

50 years ago, Dr. Irving Fradkin, founder of the Dollars for Scholars program, asked members of his community to give anything they could -- even one dollar -- to support local students. Today, your donation to the Scholarship Assistance Fund/Dollars for Scholars chapter helps ensure that students in our communities are able to achieve their post-secondary educational goals. To donate to our chapter, click here or the button at the bottom of this page. You will be taken to our online store powered by Square to make your secure donation to Scholarship Assistance Fund and help students in our communities. 

Donations of any amount are appreciated and gratefully accepted
