Only $5,000 from its $50,000 goal, Seaside Scholarships has extended its fundraising campaign to the end of January.

To donate or for up-to-date information, visit seasidescholarships.com or the group’s Facebook page.

An anonymous local donor gave $50,000, raising awareness about the drive and challenging Seaside Scholarships to match. In less than two months of fundraising, Seaside Scholarships has raised $45,000 toward the match. Donations ranging from $5 to $20,000 have been received from 89 donors.

The goal of the nonprofit organization is to make a variety of postsecondary options more affordable for Seaside High School students. Through scholarships, the group wants to invest in meritorious, needy, passionate and promising graduates.
