      Why Donate Today ?

 

    Because the United Nations, the

    Organization of American States

    and the Organization for Economic

    Development and Cooperation all

    concur that education is the key to

  sustainable development everywhere

  in the world. 

 

they further state that an education is the cornerstone to ending poverty within families!

 

Regionally, the Southern Education Foundation confirms that the only way to improve our local economies is through education.

 

In Jefferson Parish--a region where roughly 10% of high school students achieve a college education and 78% of public school students are affected by poverty--the need to educate our population becomes that much more significant!

 

locally, our work at Jefferson Dollars for Scholars is focused on ending the Cycle of Poverty within Families and thereby contributing to an educated population, and a thriving, vibrant and sustainable community.

   In 1958, Eleanor Roosevelt did it.

 

    Just recently, Katie Couric did it too        350,000 times~[click here to learn how]

 

  will you do it too?  Right now?

 

   Donate to jefferson Dollars for Scholars,

                that is !

 

our overarching vision honors the founding principle of our organization: if each resident in the community gives at least one dollar, our academically and financially deserving young people can afford to go to college.   To change the potential of our community and break the cycle of poverty within families, we ask each resident of Jefferson parish to donate at least one dollar!

 

 Can you imagine a community with a diverse workforce? An increase in outside investment? Safer neighborhoods?

 

A community with the ability to sustainably meet its own needs and achieve a better overall quality of life ?

 

Well we can!  

 

 

like Dr. Fradkin, eleanor roosevelt and Katie Couric, we believe in the power of believe in the power of a dollar. Our campaign invites our community to believe as well!
