You have reached an important place- a place where you can help someone's dreams happen.  Please consider sending a donation to Ballard Community Dollars for Scholars to help this year's graduating seniors reach their dreams for a brighter future.  We offer a scholarship to all graduating seniors who plan to attend post-secondary education or training and submit a complete application by the deadline.  The student can use their scholarship for college, junior college or trade school/apprenticeships.

WE HAVE SEVERAL WAYS YOU CAN HELP PROVIDE SCHOLARSHIPS FOR BALLARD SENIORS:

Donation amounts: 

One annual scholarship  = $400 donation

To start an endowment that perpetually provides one scholarship each year = $8500

However, we take donations of ANY size to put towards enriching the size of all of our scholarships above the minimum $400.

All donations are appreciated and recognized in our program at Scholarship Awards Night in late Spring.  Donors providing $400 for a scholarship are invited to attend the award ceremony to present their scholarship to the recipient.
