We Help Our Community's Students Succeed Through Scholarships

Our Dollars For Scholars chapter is a nonprofit foundation that supports academic success in our community. As part of the Scholarship America's national network of locally based, volunteer-driven Dollars for Scholars chapters, our mission is to mobilize our community on behalf of post-secondary 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.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please contact us at
YelmDollarsForScholars@gmail.com.  We meet the second Tuesday of each month with additional meetings closer to our auction in March which is the biggest fundraiser of the year. In 2021 we will continue to meet virtually until it is safe to  meet in person.
