Support Polaris with a Gift: Donate Today!

Polaris relies on gifts from friends like you to support our innovative hands-on Learning Expeditions and our transformative character-building education that inspire students to achieve more than we think possible. Your tax-deductible donation to Polaris directly impacts the 450 K–8th grade students we serve each day.

Your gift helps us fulfill our mission: educating students to be self-motivated, creative, critical thinkers, with the ultimate goal of shaping life-long learners and citizens with a strong sense of personal and civic responsibility. With your help we are empowering our students to become true Explorers and Active Citizens who engage the world with Integrity, Critical Thinking, and Compassion. 

Thank you for changing the lives of Polaris students today and creating a bright future for our kids.

We are grateful that you are part of the Polaris family. Thank you for joining us in this work.
