Your support enables us to continue empowering marginalized and vulnerable members of the community through education. Donations pay for student scholarships, manipulatives for hands-on learning, classroom accommodations and modifications, professional development for staff, and educational technology such as digital subscriptions and computer software

We accept gifts of

  • cash and memorials;

  • property, securities, and other appreciated assets;

  • bequests or testamentary trusts;

  • charitable gift annuities with a return for the remainder of the donor's life;

  • unitrusts, charitable remainder trusts; and

  • life insurance designations.
