#GivingTuesday with Dearborn Academy

Thank you for supporting Dearborn Academy, a program of Schools for Children, as you celebrated #GivingTuesday 2019.

Whether you donated, shared information on social media, or asked your friends and family to support us, we appreciate all that you did to make #givingTuesday a success for Dearborn -- and all you do everyday to help us help students. 


On the heels of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday reminds people what the holiday season is all about -- building community. Whether made on December 3rd or any time during our Dearborn Season of Giving, your donation of what ever amount you choose -- $5, $25, $100 or more -- makes a significant difference in the learning and life of a student with special needs.

Many of our students had nearly given up on school, but through hard work and with caring support they found real joy in learning at Dearborn Academy.

With funding for educational enrichment, technology, and community-building traditions like prom and rowing club, we will help many more students succeed.
