SSDP will not sell, rent, trade or transfer your personal information to outside organizations. Use of donor information will be limited to the internal purposes of SSDP and only to further the mission of SSDP.

Restricted Donations

Unrestricted gifts support SSDP’s day-to-day operating expenses and cover the cost of staff support for our growing network of students. Gifts greater than $5,000 are eligible to be restricted to a special project or geographical area, pending a conversation with SSDP staff. If you would like to make a restricted gift, please contact Lauren Padgett at or 202-393-5280x14
