Ways to Give

Are you interested in sponsoring a Determined to Succeed student for the year? It costs approximately $6,000 to provide our high-touch, deeply impactful programming for each student annually.  A $6,000 gift ensures a student receives the support they need to achieve their goals of completing their college education and pursuing a meaningful life. Please contact Diana Monaco to become a Student Sponsor, or for more information.


Recurring monthly donations are a game-changer for small non-profits like DTS. They provide a consistent stream of revenue allowing us to provide the highest caliber of programming for our students, continuously, year-round. 

To make a monthly gift, please move the toggle to “monthly” in the Select Donation Frequency box on our donation page.
