Washburn Area Dollars for Scholars was organized in 1993 by a committee of nine dedicated volunteers.  In that first year, three scholarships were awarded.  Since then, Washburn Area Dollars for Scholars has awarded a total of 459 senior scholarships totaling $362,750 and 103 alumni scholarships totaling $96,000.

Securing funds for scholarships is a year-round commitment that we take very seriously.  We strive to maintain a presence at all school and community events and include various fundraisers throughout the year:

Fall means a phone call!  With the help of student volunteers, residents and alumni are contacted updating them on the Dollars for Scholars giving opportunities. 

Winter brings forth a large fundraising effort. For 20 years it was the dinner dance, and this year Dollars for Scholars is hosting "A Magical Medora Christmas" show.

Spring brings GRADUATION!  The culmination of our fundraising efforts with the awarding of scholarships to graduating seniors and alumni. 

Instrumental in the inception of our chapter was the initiative, encouragement and financial support of the community, business partners and the dedication of many volunteers. Without the ongoing support of them, we would not exist.
