Donor Privacy

SSDP values your privacy. Your contact information is stored securely, and we do not sell nor share your personal information with any individuals, organizations, or companies.

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
