SUPPORT A STUDENT OR PROGRAM
We have multiple ways you can support our students and programs, including “General Giving” which will allow us to use your support
where the need may be greatest, or you can choose to join our “Support a Student” or “Support a Program” initiative, whichever option
is closest to your heart. Regardless of your choice, rest assured you’ll be making a tremendous impact on our youth!
Please contact our Director of Development, Alex Choperena, at firstname.lastname@example.org
with any questions about our giving.
Rest assured any and all donations will go towards our “greatest needs,” which can vary from time to time, but will always ultimately support our students and/or programs, helping to ensure our youth have the resources they need to thrive.

Events are important to our school culture and provide our students with a well-rounded experience. Fundraising is crucial as our goal is to provide access to these events at a low cost, or no cost to our students, many of whom would otherwise struggle to afford attending.
