DCP News

(1) Thanks to Sandy & Michael Hermanoff and Hermelin Family Support Foundation,  three of our "Believers", for their very generous contribution to our annual drive.  This year we are hoping to raise $100,000 for scholarships, so we can expand our award. We list all contributors, unless they want to be anonymous, on our Donors page.

The Detroit College Promise Annual Drive

We will begin our annual drive via mail within the next few weeks to raise funds for our scholarships. You can also click here to donate $5 or whatever you can afford so we can accomplish our organization's goal.  Contributions to our 501(c)(3) nonprofit are tax deductible as allowed by law, and are paid directly to Michigan public colleges and universities for tuition expenses for our scholarship recipients.

We appreciate your donation!
