E.A.R.N. relies on individual, community and partnership support to aid the life-challenged students we serve. To ensure we are providing the most services to the highest number of recipients, here are several ways you can help.
Every dollar helps E.A.R.N. to serve those most in need. We thank you in advance for your support!
Our online donation form below allows you to select the option that works best for you.
General donations will allocate funds to the highest & best use inside E.A.R.N. which may include our administration costs, fundraising efforts or program initiatives. Another option is to designate your support towards a specific initiative. If you, your friends, church or company would be willing to participate as a group, there is also an option for a micro-donation campaign. This requires only a “mico-daily” commitment of 10 participants as a “team or group” for a period of 90 days to fully fund an E.A.R.N. recipient*. For more information, complete the Contact Form and select Donations. One of our staff members will reach out to you to begin. *dependent on which pathway to completion is selected-1 year high school diploma or GED option. May be able to fund more than 1 based on option.
