Ways to Get Involved

Your GIFT creates a brighter future for South Carolina’s students. Thanks to you, we can connect over 16,000 at-risk students across the state with one of our 32 seasoned Site Coordinators. We deliver the evidenced-based CIS program inside the school building five days a week, eight hours a day throughout the school year.  Our staff provide powerful direct services like peer and one-on-counseling to students while providing “lift” to their families through wraparound services provided by over 200+ non-profit partners, Social-Emotional Learning skills, and basic needs supports.  Make a gift today and help us achieve our mission to “surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.”  Many thanks for your generosity!   

There are several ways you can create a brighter future for a student.
