Frequently Asked Questions

What is Scholar Fund?

Scholar Fund is a national crowdfunding platform that enables anyone to donate as little as $5 to directly fund life-changing access to education for students across the nation. Scholar Fund is a program under Scholarship Junkies, an IRS pending U.S. 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Because we are pending, your current donations are not tax-deductible, but we will let you know as soon as this changes!

How does Scholar Fund fund its day to day operations?

Nearly 100% of every donation made on Scholar Fund directly funds education for the student you choose. We say nearly because we are charged a small credit card fee of 2.9% + $0.3 for every transaction. Our goal is to even pay the credit card processing fees so that students get everything they deserve. Our operating expenses are planned to be covered separately by foundations, philanthropists, and our parent organization Scholarship Junkies.
