Your Support Makes a Difference

We believe that every student deserves an excellent educational foundation that will prepare them for success in life, including colleges and careers of their choice, and informed civic engagement.

The cost of educating 820 Paul Cuffee students is funded in part by the State of Rhode Island and City of Providence, but the state’s funding formula for public charter schools does not include the cost of purchasing, renting, maintaining or improving our buildings. To expand our capacity, we rely upon mission-aligned community partnerships and philanthropic relationships to help sustain the exceptional instruction, resources and enrichment opportunities that distinguish our school.

Malcolm X wisely said that, “Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.” Please invest in the growth and development of today’s Paul Cuffee students with an online gift you can afford, a special program sponsorship, or one of our restricted gift opportunities. Your support matters.
