We thank our generous donors for believing in what we do. Their support allows us to live out our mission of inspiring students – not telling them who they are or what they should do, but gently nurturing their own self-understanding and life direction. We know it makes a difference. We know each gift makes a difference. Thank you for helping kids’ dreams come true.

The list below recognizes those corporations, foundations, organizations, schools, and individuals who made in-kind donations between July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2017.
