GIVE is Second Community’s direct donation program, which typically raises over half of our budget for each school year. We aim for 100% participation in the GIVE program – any amount is welcome! As an example, if you choose to budget a $1,000 donation over the 9-month academic year, your monthly GIVE contribution will be about $111. That’s a bargain compared to private school tuition – and it’s tax deductible!


We know that many of us cannot afford to give that much – there is no expectation that families will be able to make donations of this size. But we really hope you will work Second Community into your family’s budget in some way. Any contribution you make to GIVE will help Second Community reach its ambitious fundraising goal. You can get creative and encourage employers, friends, or relatives to contribute on your child’s behalf.


Here’s how you can GIVE:


  • Credit Cards: You can make a recurring or one-time donation with any major credit card on the GIVE site.

  • Venmo & Paypal: Donations may also be sent electronically via Venmo (SCPA-Treasurer; four digit code = 5788) or Paypal (

  • Checks or Cash: Put your cash or check made out to “SCPA” in an envelope, indicating the initiative or classroom it’s meant to support. Then either give it to Dana in the front office, or drop it off in the safe in Room 6, right inside the door on the left.

  • Corporate Matching: Did you know many companies will match your gift to Clarendon Second Community? Ask your employer if they will match your donation, or look them up on Charity Navigator.
