"On behalf of Scholarship America, I would like to personally offer you my warm congratulations on your selection as the Regional Chapter of the Year.  Your tireless energy, dedication and passion for volunteering with Dollars for Scholars have literally created life changing opportunities for students-not just in your community, but throughout the country! Your chapter should be incredibly proud of your achievements, as we are certainly thrilled with your selection."

GDFS is a collection of people who want to see students go to college and get the recognition and assistance they need to do so. Members include parents of past and present high school students, as well as alumni who would like to "give back" to their community. There are also faculty and staff members who are part of our group. We welcome anyone in the community who would like to contribute their expertise to Gananda Dollars for Scholars! Gananda Dollars for Scholars is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, which means your donation is tax deductible.
