$100 Covers one afternoon of hands-on homework help for dozens of students in 826michigan’s popular after-school tutoring program.

$10,000 Funds our annual signature book project in an under-resourced public school, including everything from training the volunteers to enter the classrooms to copyediting, designing, and printing a hardcover book of the students’ original writing, released to the public at the end of the school year.
