How to support?

Every gift to the Don Bosco Center has an impact! 

During the Illuminate Appeal, we are focusing on providing access to children to quality resources to bridge the desperate need for educational support! 

The most immediate and impactful way to give access to quality educational resources is by funding a Sponsorship or a Scholarship for one of our under-resourced students at the Afterschool and Enrichment Program. 

We are a PayPal verified charity. Online donations are processed through our new secure payment system powered by PayPal.

Student Sponsorship

Student Scholarship


Sponsor a student’s enrollment in the Afterschool Enrichment Program for the academic year.
