Ways to Give

Make a Donation

Working with 12,316 children, one child at a time, requires significant financial resources, which must be raised annually.  We have accomplished so much through the generosity of private donors, changing the odds for children and families throughout the Zone and becoming a national model to end generational poverty.  We hope you will consider a gift to support this important work.

Provide an Internship

HCZ currently has nearly 1,000 students enrolled in college.  Paid summer internships are singlehandedly the most valuable experience our students can have to ensure their preparation for the highly competitive job market.  As their first exposure to a professional environment, internships give them the opportunity to forge valuable relationships and build a much-needed networking base.  Plus, the income they earn helps cover the cost of college tuition and books, defraying their sometimes formidable college debt.  If your company offers internship opportunities, please let us know.  We have hundreds of bright college students eager to learn and gain experience.

Conduct a Book Drive

Building home libraries encourages our students to read regularly and is especially crucial for children at the beginning of our pipeline, where early vocabulary development is one of the most critical building blocks to a lifetime of learning.  Holding a book drive with your colleagues and neighbors would be a huge help for our kids.  New books only please!
