There are many ways to support student success. Scholarship America works with partners across the country to help make the biggest impact possible — in the way that works best for you. In addition to online gifts, sponsorships or estate gifts, we invite you to consider these options.
Interest For Others
It’s a simple yet powerful idea. What if many people combined their earned interest and donated it to charity?
Interest For Others allows you to do just that — pledge to donate the earned interest from your bank account to charities including Scholarship America. If just 9% of American bank account holders donate their earned interest, we can raise $2.3 billion per year for nonprofits. Visit interestforothers.org to learn more and to donate to Scholarship America.
A sustaining monthly gift means continued support for students all year long — and it’s easy to set up! Just visit our online giving form and select “Monthly” as your gift type. With one click, you can ensure consistent impact.
Corporate Matching and Workplace Campaigns
More than 400 companies will match their employees’ gifts to Scholarship America and our programs. To find out if your employer is among them, download the full list. If yours is on the list, contact your HR department directly to receive the appropriate forms.
Many companies as well as federal (civilian and military) and state employees have the opportunity to designate specific charities for contributions through payroll deduction. Please check with your local United Way as well as campaigns involving Educate America! and Independent Charities of America to find out how to make Dollars for Scholars, a program of Scholarship America, your contribution choice.
The transfer of appreciated securities to a nonprofit has tax-saving advantages for you and makes a big impact for students. Call 1-800-537-4180 for information on how to transfer stock directly from your account to Scholarship America.
Memorials and Honorariums
Your online gift or gift by check can be designated In Memory or In Honor of family, colleagues or loved ones. Simply enter their name in the online giving form, or write “In Memory of …” or “In Honor of …” on your check memo.
