RAISING EDUCATION DOLLARS (RED)
FOR DCG STUDENTS
College today is expensive. Tuition and the cost of living have increased so much so that college has become an unaffordable option for some students.
The DCG Education Foundation was created to provide scholarship opportunities to students of the DCG school district. We are an independent 501(c)3 organization that cares about the post-secondary options available for our students. While independent from the DCG Community School District, we work together to educate our students, staff, and parents to bring our vision and mission to the Dallas Center and Grimes communities.
THE RED DINNER & AUCTION
The RED event is our largest fundraiser each year. By bringing the district communities together, we are able to raise money to provide RED scholarships - 4-year renewable scholarships that help make a solid dent in the costs of college.
It's simple - the more we raise the more we can give.
