The Swanville Dollars for Scholars is an affiliate of Scholarship America, a national, non-profit student and service organization.  Their tax-exempt status insures that all contributions are tax-deductible.

The Swanville Dollars for Scholars program also benefits from Collegiate Partners. Thirty schools in Minnesota and many nationwide are Collegiate Partners, including State Universities and Private Colleges. 

Collegiate Partners agree that an award up to $2,500 that a student receives from a local Dollars for Scholars program will not reduce the student's financial aid package.  Some Collegiate Partners make an additional commitment as "matching partners" by matching scholarship awards coming to them from Dollars for Scholars chapters.
