WHO WE ARE
Founded in 2000 as LaCrosse Dollars for Scholars, we are now called LaCrosse Scholarship Foundation. Since our inception, we have awarded LaCrosse high school students $188,580 in scholarships (as of August 2016). We also manage four additional scholarships that also benefit local students: The Clemente Barber Scholarship, the Mason’s Scholarship, the Gayle Startin Memorial Scholarship, and the Jack Ferris Memorial Scholarship. We award these scholarships each year at LaCrosse High School’s graduation ceremony.OUR MISSION
