The local chapter of Hudson Dollars for Scholars
was established in the Fall of 2009. It is a nonprofit
501(c(3) organization formed to assist graduation
students within the Hudson City School district.
Dollars for Scholars History
In 1958, an Optometrist in Fall River, Ma, had
a simple but profound idea—if everyone in
his community gave just a dollar to an
education fund, it would be enough to help nearly
every student in the community who wanted to
attend college. Dr. Irving Fradkin called his
plan “Dollars for Scholars”, and it has expanded
into what today, is the nations’ largest
non-profit, private-sector scholarship and
educational support organization.
