The cost of higher education is one of today’s most pressing needs. The Lawnside Scholarship Club has been providing scholarships since 1945. Joined by community organizations and individuals, the Club annually administers more than $15,000 to encourage intellectual growth. You can join with these groups and donors to help us reach our highest goals. Your contributions are tax-exempt.

The Club presented 34 awards to outstanding 2019 Lawnside graduates at the Salute to Seniors Awards and Jazz Brunch at Tavistock Country Club in June. The July 25, 2020 virtual Salute to Seniors was streamed on Facebook and hosted on Zoom. It was free and not a fundraiser but we did have some sponsors. More than $15,000 was awarded.

There are many ways to give to the Scholarship Club and the students it serves. The Club has set a goal of $5,000 to provide book awards to college students.

Here are just a few ways you can help the Club:
