Additional options for donating to Education Elevators

We are always in need of books, art and crafts supplies, games, costumes, computers, sports equipment, puzzles and other items that Elevators and students can use in their meetings.

How Will Your Donation Be Used? 

The Education Elevators Foundation has zero overhead expenses. Thus, we devote every donation we receive directly to the Education Elevators program rather than using donations to pay utilities or other costs that are “non-elevating” expenses. 

Your donation will:

  • Help fund our program coordinators. These are retired and current employees of the Kanawha and Berkeley County Schools who provide much-needed advice and counseling support to our Elevators as they build relationships with their students. 
  • Enable us to purchase books, games, arts & crafts, sports equipment, and project materials for Elevators and students to use.
  • Support background checks and the vetting process.
  • Support the critical initial and ongoing training that we provide to Elevators.

Special Donations

  • Let us know if you want your donation to meet a specific need. 
  • We welcome your in-kind donation of books, games, puzzles, sports equipment, and other items that Elevators and students can use in their meetings. To make an in-kind donation, contact:
