Supporting students in every way

There's never been a better time to give to Da Vinci RISE High! Contributions from families, alumni, staff and friends are critical to fulfilling Da Vinci's vision and bridging the gap between what the state provides and the actual cost of a Da Vinci RISE High education. This year, Da Vinci RISE has a funding gap of approximately $10,000 per student. We strive to fill this gap through major grants and gifts and through smaller donations from generous donors like you.

Every dollar donated goes directly to the provision of personalized, project-based learning and comprehensive wraparound services such as counseling and case management. This powerful, integrative approach ensures RISE students graduate with a strong sense of self and value of community, that they possess the skills and passion to create change, and that they feel empowered and prepared to do so.

Founded in 2017, Da Vinci RISE High is a safe haven for youth experiencing the foster care system, housing instability and/or the juvenile justice system. RISE incorporates project-based learning, onsite mental health services, flexible scheduling, trauma-informed care, and a co-location model for wraparound services and extracurricular programming to provide educational equity for youth who are most frequently written out of the larger educational narrative.

Your donation has been received by Da Vinci Schools Fund, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, Tax ID# 82-4350823, and directed to Da Vinci RISE High. All donations are voluntary and tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
