The Dollars for Scholars Telethon

Sunday, April 7, 2019

The telethon is the Dollars for Scholars main fundraiser, and again this year we are looking for a success.  It's success is due to commitment from many.  Senior students and their parents are the volunteer workforce, the backbone of this fundraiser. Their dedication to education provides DFS with a well staffed telethon.  However, we also need the involvement of  businesses, people, and organizations to continue our scholarship program.   Alliant Energy will again be allowing Dollars for Scholars to use their building as command center.  The generosity of so many contribute to the educational scholarships that will be awarded to  graduating Oelwein students at Awards Night in May 2019.

With many household having only cell phones or unlisted numbers, we might miss community members who want to support us.  If we are unable to call you, send your donation to Oelwein Dollars for Scholars, %Oelwein Community Schools, 307 8th Ave. SE, Oelwein, IA 50662.  Or, you may easily donate on the "Donate Now" page of this website.


Thanks to the generosity of individuals, businesses, clubs and organizations the 2018 Telethon raised over $11,000. We need your help to continue raising funds for the class of 2019.
Please be generous when you receive a call or business letter.
