The Gift That Keeps Giving

SoutheastPolk DFSLogo CMYKSoutheast Polk Dollars for Scholars® is part of a nationwide network of community-based scholarship foundations, 87 of which are in Iowa. It is a program of Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest non-profit private-sector scholarship and educational assistance organization.

Southeast Polk High School graduates have been receiving scholarships under the Southeast Polk Dollars for Scholars program since 2001 — a total of almost $3.2 million has been awarded since then!

These scholarships are made possible by the contributions of the SEP community through the Black and Gold Gala in the fall, various golf tournaments, Southeast Polk Elementary Hat Day, Altoona HyVee 3% of receipts weekend, Southeast Polk Employees payroll deduction donations, and eatery fundraisers such as Pizza Ranch, Bianchi Boys, Culver’s, and Over the Top ice cream.
Thanks to all of you who supported these in an effort to contribute to the SEP Dollars for Scholars foundation!
