Why Donate?

For over 20 years, the Intergens have trailblazed providing high-quality, personalized education in Cleveland. Our nationally recognized education model has empowered thousands of students to reach their full potential and achieve academic success. In our schools, equitable education means embracing the uniqueness of each student and providing opportunities to learn beyond the walls of the buildings. Our success as a tuition-free, public charter school network depends on the generous support of donors and partners. A gift to the Intergens is an investment in the strong educational foundation needed to develop the next generation of leaders.

Books for Boundless Learning

Our fundraising goal this year is $37,100, which helps us:

• Provide each student with 3-5 books that will support our remote literacy curriculum
• Connect students to community groups through our One Book, One School Event
• Host Virtual Intergenerational Books Clubs with older adults

Due to COVID-19, students are no longer able to access the shared books in our schools' libraries and classrooms. This initiative will provide students with a personal set of books that will be used in class instruction and enjoyed for years to come!
