We Help Our Community's Students Succeed Through Scholarships
Clinton Dollars for Scholars® is a nonprofit foundation that supports academic success in our community. As part of the Scholarship America® national network of locally based, volunteer-driven Dollars for Scholars chapters, our mission is to mobilize our community on behalf of postsecondary education success for our students.
Dollars for Scholars chapters like ours help hometown students achieve their educational goals by raising scholarship funds, establishing endowments, providing assistance with college readiness and the financial aid process, and distributing scholarships each year.Our chapter has been awarding scholarships, since its founding in 1984. The initial scholarships were small, $50, funded by the sale of roses and donations. Over time our membership has grown and our fundraising efforts have successfully progressed, so that the chapter can now award scholarships from $250 to $1500.
Our largest fundraising event in each of the past five years has been our annual Ferris Lawnmower raffle held in conjuction with Clinton Tractor's open house. However, several of our smaller events, such as Alteri's Winter Pizza extravaganza and the Shoppers' Stroll raffle, each support the funding of scholarships.
We are always looking for new fundraising ideas, resources to aid our students as they apply for college, and sources of volunteers. Please consider offering your time and talents to this worthy organization.For more information, please click on the link below:
