Stamford Dollars for Scholars fills a void in our community by providing scholarship assistance to high school graduates who live or attend high school in Stamford, and who want to pursue education beyond high school. We share a passionate belief that education changes the lives of individuals and communities for the better.
We were conceived around a simple idea: together we can step in and help local students achieve their educational goals. There's no greater gift we can give our student neighbors-in-need than access to the tools to create a brighter future. Doing so tells them that we take pride in their determination and share their dreams.

Fairfield County Giving Day Huge Success
Thank you to everyone who participated in our 2015 Giving Day event hosted by Fairfield County's Community Foundation. Through your generosity and dedication we were able to raise $2,010 from your contributions and an additional $1,000 Launch Prize from the Fairfield County's Community Foundation.
As a result we reached our goal to fund the
SD4S Giving Day Scholarship
which will be offered this year.
We Could Not Have Done It Without You!
