The South Montgomery Community Schools Dollars for Scholars (SMCSDFS) is an independent philanthropic organization that serves as a resource for educational advancement in the South Montgomery community. This non-profit, 501 c(3) educational foundation was initiated to serve as an alternative funding source for educational activities in our community as tax dollars are stretched. The SMCSDFS offers opportunities for parents, businesses, and other community members to help advance and enhance the academic development of our community’s children. The current goals of the organization are to provide student scholarships and teacher awards to promote educational advancement.
