How You Can Help

There's multiple ways to lend a hand.

Because of the generosity of donors, families supported by Today and Tomorrow Educational Foundation have a choice of schools and a chance for the future. Through many generous partnerships and scores of major gifts, the future will be different. Because of the dedicated families, the continual efforts of community leaders and the commitment of so many teachers, principals and parents, children are studying and succeeding in academically challenging, safe and nurturing, faith-based environments.

From one-time gifts to ongoing support, the involvement of donors is transforming the lives of children. Their generosity is a vote of confidence in the Today and Tomorrow Educational Foundation’s efforts to provide the very best educational opportunities to underserved elementary school students.

There are four principal ways to make a tax-deductible gift to support students through the Today and Tomorrow Educational Foundation. Donors are encouraged to find a program that fits their personal interests, whether it’s a particular school, particular program, a scholarship or an event.

“One hundred years from now, it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove, but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.”
