Employee Giving Campaign

An Employee Giving Campaign is an easy and efficient way to make tax-deductible donations to charities through payroll contributions. Your company and its employees have the power to change the life of a student in our community by providing a much-needed stream of donations to Stars Scholarship Fund.

In 2016, Stars Scholarship Fund awarded 1,051 scholarships to students from our community. All of the scholarship recipients are deserving students; however this cohort of scholarship recipients only represented 15.08% of our applicants. There were more than 5,916 students we were not able to help.

As students struggle to fill the gap in their financial need for college, our scholarships mean the difference in whether a student chooses to enroll in the next semester or not.


With that said, Stars Scholarship Fund realizes that we must work year-round and beyond our annual Extravaganzas to raise more funds. The number of scholarships we are able to award each year is directly related to the funds we are able to raise.


Every dollar counts! $50 per year will assist a student from our community attend college and $1,000 per year will pay for a scholarship for a full academic year for a full-time undergraduate or graduate student from our community.

OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU:

100% of your donation will be applied to scholarships for students in our community.
There are few non-profit charities that can say that.
Not one penny will go to our organization's overhead or operating expenses.


100% of your donation will be matched dollar for dollar by an institution of higher education.
Stars Scholarship Fund is fortunate to have partnerships with 22 colleges and universities from
across the State of Texas that serves students from our community.
