Dedicated to Make a Change, L3C is in need of funds. I am asking you for help. Your partnership will help Dedicated to Make a Change, DTMAC, to continue to reach and support teens.
Our goal is for each teen, which participants in programming at the clubhouse, to receive a diploma and to earn an average or above score on the SAT, 1000.
We are asking for you to help teens receive academic support partnering with DTMAC.

Here are a few options: Be an Angle Investor, give DTMAC a micro loan with no or low interest, or run a Crowd fund on behalf of DTMAC, purchase Handmade Jewelry, and products from Syracuse Cultural Workers. As the saying goes, "any old amount will do."
