Northwest Dollars for Scholars
Dollars for Scholars is a network of grassroots, volunteer-driven chapters raising money within local communities to provide scholarships for local students. Local chapters also encourage students to go to college and provide information about higher education options.
Northwest Dollars for Scholars helps create and support chapters in the states of Oregon and Washington. We are a nonprofit resource center that provides ideas, training, technical assistance, and marketing support.
The Northwest is the home of over 159 Dollars for Scholars chapters. Each Dollars for Scholars chapter or affiliate raises funds to provide scholarships and college planning assistance for students in their local community. With over 1,100 volunteers working in more than 160 communities, Dollars for Scholars is a true grassroots movement.
Last year, Dollars for Scholars chapters in the Northwest raised over $4 million and awarded scholarships to over 2,500 students.
