Maquoketa Valley Dollars for Scholars is a non-profit organization founded in 1999 with a goal of encouraging students to continue their education, by providing financial support in the form of local scholarships.  We are operated locally by volunteers and are affiliated nationally with Scholarship America.   Since establishment in 1999, $695,283 in scholarships have been awarded to 865 graduating seniors to assist them with post-secondary education expenses.  Our program garnered national recognition as Iowa Dollars for Scholars Chapter of the Year in 2011.

Funding for scholarships is entirely dependent upon donations from area businesses, community organizations, alumni,  families, and individuals who desire a local channel for giving and also believe in supporting the educational opportunities of local youth. There are many choices for charitable giving and we are pleased that Maquoketa Valley Dollars for Scholars provides a local option where monies directly impact those it serves.  Many in the this community and beyond have already chosen to support their community and students through Maquoketa Valley Dollars for Scholars.  Won't you consider offering your support today?  Learn More Here!
