The Dollars for Scholars Telethon for 2020
has been cancelled due to the Coronavirus pandemic


The telethon is the Dollars for Scholars main fundraiser, but in the interest of our students and community's safety, it has been cancelled this year. Instead, Dollars for Scholars is conducting a Letter-thon donation event.  We are asking business & community members to contribute what they can in this difficult time to help our 2020 graduates.  This time is uncertain for all, and that includes our  graduating seniors who are hopeful of continuing their education and also need our help.
If we are able and willing to help in this cause, 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.
Together we can make it through this difficult time and show our high school graduates that we support them. Thank you in advance for your support.

Update:  Thanks to the generous help from the the community, our Letter-thon was a big success.  Oelwein Dollars for Scholars raised over $10,000 despite having to change plans at the last minute and not being able to make personal contact with our supporters. The Class of 2020 greatly appreciates the support which helped raise funds to grant each senior who applied, a scholarship to further their education.
