Your Gift Gives Us Twice the Lift!

When you donate between now and Giving Tuesday (December 1), your gift will be matched by a generous donor!

Our Giving Tuesday goal is to raise $15,000. With the match, your gift gives us twice the lift and could help us raise a total of $30,000. That means 30 scholarships that will help shape a child’s future. Every gift makes a priceless impact!
