Our Mission

The mission of Jefferson Dollars for Scholars® is to expand access to educational opportunities for Jefferson Parish Schools students

through scholarships and academic support.

Jefferson Dollars for Scholars is a chapter of Scholarship America®, the largest privately funded scholarship organization in the world.

There are 500 chapters nation-wide.

Founded in 1993, Jefferson Dollars for Scholars has awarded more than $27 million in scholarships to over 5,000 students.

Like all other chapters, Jefferson Dollars for Scholars is a local, grassroots organization that gets ALL of our funding from grants,

private businesses and corporates, as well as parents, friends and supporters of our cause.



We are the ONLY chapter to be nationally recognized 3 times for our outstanding work and commitment to our recipients! It is our national claim to fame and one of the highlights of Jefferson Parish itself!

You did it! You helped us blow the roof off of our goal for GiveNOLA Day 2022. Because of you and others like you, Jefferson Dollars for Scholars raised over $5,500! Thank you to everyone who donated.

Please continue to support us by spreading the word about Jefferson Dollars for Scholars. Every dollar donated goes toward providing financial assistance to any Jefferson Parish public school student that wants to attend college. We need your help to continue reaching that goal.
