Make a Charitable Donation to CIS

Helping a child graduate on time, meeting a student’s needs academically and socially, or providing mentoring and family support are just some of the ways Communities In Schools and our volunteers put your donations to work. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, CIS is surrounding students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.

Join a proud network of CIS supporters and give of your time, money, and/or in-kind services. We thank you for your gifts and the privilege of putting your compassion into action to make positive changes in the lives of our nearly 12,000 students in Charleston and Berkeley Counties.

Please consider being a sponsor or purchasing tickets to one or more of our fundraising events. Donations in any amount are also encouraged. You may purchase tickets/sponsorships or donate online with a credit card or check. Thank you for your support!
