Helping Students Succeed Through Scholarships

Across the nation, Scholarship America's programs -- including Dollars for Scholars -- have distributed more than $2.5 billion to nearly 2 million students since its founding 50 years ago.

Since 1999, Eastern York Dollars for Scholars has been working to raise funds to provide financial support to graduating seniors from the Eastern York School District going on to higher education.   As part of Scholarship America's national network of locally based, volunteer-driven Dollars for Scholars chapters, our mission as a non-profit foundation is to mobilize our community on behalf of postsecondary education success for our students.

Eastern York Dollars for Scholars is a tax-exempt charitable organization under IRS ruling 501(c)(3) and is a publicly supported charity under IRS ruling 170(b)(1)(A)(vi).  Eastern York School District faculty, staff, administration, PTOs, and graduates, as well as community members and businesses have personally invested in the future of those students awarded scholarships supported by our program through various fund drives, activities, and the United Way.

Dollars for Scholars chapters help 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.
