Providing the Educational Opportunities that Change Lives
Every dollar counts. No donation is too small.
Making Waves currently serves nearly 1,100 students from 5th grade through graduate school. It costs us $9,000 per student per school year above and beyond the meager state subsidy for education, and a comparable amount on average to ensure the college success of our students. But for every student we work with, there are 10,000 others who could benefit. We need your help to reach more students, start new schools, and continue to make positive changes in these young peoples’ lives and, ultimately, in their communities.
Please use our online donation form.
