Support Outstanding Learners...


Thank you for considering a donation to SCHOLAR. SCHOLAR is a 501(c)(3) organization which awards scholarships to high school graduates residing within the Birmingham School District for their pursuit of higher education. All donations are tax deductible to the extent allowable by the Internal Revenue Service guidelines.

By donating to the SCHOLAR Fund you will help ensure that we can continue in our mission of Supporting Outstanding Learners advance their college careers, and when you donate you can target your giving to several specialized awards; read about some of these awards here. Our organization is supported by volunteer staff and board members. This ensures that nearly 100% of your donations go directly towards the support of our student scholars.

We are actively working to expand our network and capabilities to ensure a wider range of giving options. These include bequests, charitable gift annuities, charitable lead trusts and charitable remainder trusts. SCHOLAR accepts gifts that are consistent with its mission, operations, and guidelines. Donors are always encouraged to seek their own legal and financial counsel before making any planned gifts that fall outside of our annual fund drive.
