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 gift to our Dollars for Scholars chapter helps ensure that students in our community are able to achieve their 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 gift to Scholarship Assistance Fund and help students in our community.

Contributions of all sizes are appreciated and gratefully accepted. Other gift considerations:

  • Charitable contributions can be made directly from your IRA. Click here for more Information on the advantages.
  • Scholarship Assistance Fund may also be named as a beneficiary in wills, insurance policies and memorials.
  • If you would like to give a scholarship, please contact us at: info@safdollarsforscholars.org
  • If you would like to send a gift in the form of a check, please send it to:

Gifts of every size will help generate scholarships!

We are very excited to be selected as a fundraising partner with Kilwins of Arlington Heights (16 W. Campbell Street). Kilwins will donate 20% of all Brittle sales in the month of March to help support our scholarship fund. Help support both a local business, and our scholarship fund by stopping by Kilwins and browsing their Brittle selection. SAF Dollars for Scholars offers scholarships every year to residents of Arlington Heights, Buffalo Grove, Mount Prospect, Prospect Heights and Wheeling.
