Create a Smile: Ways to Donate

Donate Your Time and Talents

Specialty Tutoring is eternally grateful for all of the individuals, families, philanthropic organizations, and businesses who have donated their money, goods, services, or time to us over the years. Contributions of time, talent, and hard-earned dollars from supporters in our community allow Specialty Tutoring to keep overhead costs down and ensure that our services remain accessible and affordable to everyone who is committed to getting help for their child.

Monetary Donations:

Your monetary sponsorship of a tutoring program for a child can make a life-changing difference! We routinely see children in our area schools functioning at multiple grade-levels below their current grade placement in reading, math or writing. Please contact us if you are willing to subsidize the cost of tutoring sessions for one of these children by making a donation to our financial assistance fund.

We also welcome donations of educational materials, laptops or tablets, office supplies and student incentives.

Mail your check, payable to Specialty Tutoring. Please contact us if you would like a tax receipt mailed to you.
