Background Information

Pella Dollars for Scholars helps provide financial support for graduates of Pella High School, Pella Christian High School, and homeschool students who continue their education. We are only able to do this through the help and support of friends of education like you. Even a small donation can make a big difference in the life of a graduating high school student who might not otherwise be able to attend college.

Pella Dollars for Scholars is an IRS qualified 501(c)(3) organization. This means that your contribution qualifies as a tax deductible gift. Donors should also check with their employer to inquire if contributions might qualify for employer matching funds to maximize the benefit of your contributions.
