Why donate to Lancaster Dollars for Higher Learning?

Every dollar you give to Lancaster Dollars for Higher Learning helps generations of students fund their college educations. Unlike scholarship programs that offer money to students a single time, our interest-free loans are recycled back into the program and reallocated to other students. This has helped us meet the educational needs of entire families for more than 50 years.
