"The work that we do creates positive disturbances or positive movement in our students’ lives and in our communities. We seek change in our society; the status quo is not acceptable. We seek to be agents of beneficial change for our children and the communities we serve. Most importantly, we strive to instill in our children the awareness that they are gifted and have a responsibility to share their gifts and thereby make a difference in their lives and the lives of others."
Providing The Educational Opportunities That Change Lives
Every dollar counts. No donation is too small.
Making Waves currently serves nearly 1,000 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. 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.
