Ways of Giving

Donors have the option of directing their contributions toward tuition assistance, sponsorship of a student, classroom or school of their choice, grants to schools or the endowment. Donors may sponsor a student, a school or a classroom.


Sponsorship of a school or classroom provides the tools to keep education on the cutting edge through curriculum enrichment, technology advances, equipment purchases and facility updates. Our Sponsorship and Patron Programs have been designed to give donors the opportunity to see their contributions at work. The sponsor may choose the amount of interaction with the receiving school, classroom and students.
