Ways to Give to Excel

Excel Academy offers multiple ways to make a gift that will support our efforts and vision of ensuring all students who come through our door, regardless of background or educational level, graduate prepared for college and beyond. 

To make a multi-year pledge, a gift through your donor-advised fund, if you have questions, or would like to meet to discuss giving to Excel Academy, please contact Diane Cohen, Director of Development and Communications at dcohen@excelacademy.org.

Shop at Amazon, Support Excel

The next time you shop on Amazon, please consider supporting Excel along the way.

Amazon recently introduced Amazon Smile, a program in which Amazon donates 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible purchases to nonprofits – at no additional charge or cost to the consumer!

The next time you shop on Amazon, use this special link (http://smile.amazon.com/ch/30-0211613) and you won’t notice any difference in your shopping experience – but Excel will benefit along the way. (Please make sure the chosen charity is “Friends of Excel Academy.”)

Donate Books

Excel Academy is always in need of age-appropriate books that we can provide in the classroom and loan to students over the summer. We have set up an Amazon Wish List that makes it easy to purchase books for Excel.

To purchase a book or books, please visit our Wish List by clicking here. (Please note that if possible, three copies of each book is preferred as we have three different middle schools. But all donations are appreciated!)

Friends of Excel Academy is proud to be a GuideStar Exchange Gold Participant.
