Our chapter is part of a national organization called Scholarship America which is the nation's largest scholarship organization in the U.S.. Scholarship American has ranked as the top education charity for five consecutive years by Smart Money magazine.

History of the DGF Dollars for Scholars

Last year, $18,100 was given out to 26 students ranging from $500-$1,000. Through the gifts of individuals, businesses and service clubs, our endowment fund has now grown to over $300,000. It is through earnings and growth of this endowment fund, that we are able to fund the scholarships provided.
