Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and with it, we kick off the holiday season! The Detroit Public Schools Foundation is celebrating the spirit of the holidays this year by creating a Holiday Giving Guide. Each of these opportunities will allow you to support Detroit Public Schools Community District (DPSCD) students in a meaningful way. Giving back is fun and easy, and it has a huge impact!

Give back while you travel with Lyft

The holiday season means parties, family gatherings and general festivities to get us in the holiday spirit. Wherever you’re traveling this winter, opt into Lyft’s Round Up & Donate program and choose DPS Foundation as your charity to support DPSCD students!

Shop Amazon Smile on Cyber Monday (and all season long!)

Give back while you shop on Amazon this holiday season! When you choose the Detroit Public Schools Foundation as your charity of choice on Amazon Smile, the Foundation receives .5% back on every purchase, which allows us to support more programming for DPSCD students!

Support student education this holiday season

On Tuesday, December 3, and throughout the giving season, we hope you’ll join us in reflecting on all of the school experiences that we’re thankful for–from the arts and field trips to sports and favorite teachers. Ensure all DPSCD students have these same opportunities by making a tax-deductible donation to the DPS Foundation before December 31!
