Providing holiday toys for children can be a struggle for many families. The 2019 Exploration Student Toy Drive is a charity event collecting toys and money to be distributed to families in need.  You can help a family by donating gifts today and bring warmth and happiness to a family this holiday season. Any gift such as a new toy is a simple way to make a big impact on the life of a child in need!

Fostering Opportunities

As you know, student learning is enriched by the support of a community. Please join us to provide Exploration's first students with an exceptional educational experience. We are building a world-class school offering a new approach and need support for state-of-the art spaces, technologies, and school-based supports. Your gift will directly underwrite learning opportunities for local students. Please contact Casandra Vargas to discuss your gift.

In-Kind Giving

We are seeking donations of technology and science-related items from companies and organizations who share our mission to bring a world-class science and technology education to Rochester elementary students. Please contact Casandra Vargas to discuss in-kind giving.

Sharing Expertise
