A donation to Communities In Schools is an investment in the future of our country. For less than $200 per child per year, we are able to keep 99% of the young people we serve in school and on track to graduation.
Communities In Schools serves 1.25 million young people in 27 states and the District of Columbia, but many more need our help. Your tax deductible gift, large or small, will go to work immediately.
