Our programs are made possible by the donations made by generous members of our community. Because of your help, we are able to do what we do best: teaching our youth to become productive members of society. 


We need your help. The COVID-19 pandemic has put a strain on the entire globe. Not one person has been excluded from it's effects, the Sanford Center and our programs included. Events and fundraisers vital to supporting the Sanford Center, our programs, and the children and families we support, were cancelled because of the pandemic. We are all struggling, but together, we can build a brighter future for us and our community.


We are asking 2000 individuals to donate just $20 to support the Sanford Center. If our goal is met, that would provide $40,000 in donations to the Sanford Center and our programs.


Your donation will help fund for
- essential technology updates to support the students at the Sanford Center in Virtual Learning


-programs like the Outreach Prevention program, providing students and families in need with counseling and mental health services


-facilities updates to provide our students with a space for them to thrive, learn, play and grow.


2000 people. $20. That is all it takes to make a difference

If you are unable to make a donation, you can still help make a difference by spreading the word and sharing this post. 


Thank you for  your continued support in The Sanford Center, our programs, and the children and families we support. 

Together we can build communities.
