Unlock the Potential of
South Carolina Students

Because every child deserves a promising future.

Light the way for students across South Carolina.

Light a luminary in celebration of American Education Week and honor a CIS student for just $10. Our goal is to honor all 24,500 students we serve at 39 schools, and raise funds to expand into even more Title I public schools across the state.

Luminaries will be lit at community events across the state on Sunday, November 13th from 6-8pm.
