How to Donate

Help Support our Mission

Your contribution will not only help support our bilingual enrichment After-School Program but will support the Rafael Hernández school as well!

With your donation, you will help us continue partnerships such as Karate, African Dance & Drumming, 3Point, 10Boys Initiative, and Nature Club in the After School Program, and will support class-led initiatives such as field trips to the State House, local museums, and workshops for families at the Hernández school.

Donate Through Network For Good

Financial contributions of any amount or gifts in kind are essential to support the Hernandez community. Contributions to our 501(c)3, Friends of the Hernandez, are tax-deductible.


We also accept in-kind donations such as board games, school supplies, and more! Contact for more information.
