Our chapter was established in June of 1999 by the Village of Matteson Housing and Human Relations Commission to provide scholarships to deserving high school graduates with aspirations of achieving a college education.  Our chapter is operated strictly by community volunteers who generate scholarship funds from donations and community supported fundraisers.  To date, our volunteers have raised and proudly awarded over $90K to 100 college bound applicants from our very own community.  Our scholarships have aided students in attending post-secondary institutions throughout the United States.  Dollars for Scholars is a national network of grassroots community-based, volunteer-driven scholarship foundations in cities, towns and neighborhoods throughout the United States.
