Strive always accepts private donations of any amount to help support our programming. Donating to Strive is a great way to honor a loved one, commemorate a birthday, or just get involved in your community. Since Strive is a 501(c)3 organization, all donations to Strive are tax-deductible.

We are always open to adding new talent to our team of volunteers. We have a consistent wait-list of eager students who may be waiting for someone like you.

Let’s Stay in Touch!

Our program is made possible by the continued support of our community—generous donors, local business partners, volunteers past and present, friends, family, and YOU. We are so grateful that you are a part of the Strive Family, and we want to keep you up-to-date throughout the year.

From student work to volunteer outreach opportunities, from events to student stories, we hope to share Strive Tutoring’s work with you like never before. Our website has been redesigned, allowing us to accept volunteer applications online, and to provide our students with online registration. Through our Facebook Page, you can see photos from our program, learn about upcoming events, and hear the latest news. Sign up at the right for occasional Strive news and updates!
