Make a Gift

Immigrant families need your help NOW. Please make a generous gift to Downtown Languages’ COVID-19 Response Fund today.


You have the power to change lives. Every gift to Downtown Languages helps provide rent and utilities assistance to Latinx and immigrant families who are experiencing extreme hardship due to loss of employment and health issues related to the pandemic, distance learning programs to keep students moving forward in their English-language studies and their children engaged in school, and connections to reliable information, community resources and, importantly, each other.

As this crisis continues, so does the need. Immigrant families count on Downtown Languages as a place of learning, opportunity, and support. Your contribution gives real, immediate help to these families, brings hope, inspires confidence, and changes lives.  THANK YOU for making a difference.

Did you know? The 2020 CARES Act increased deduction allowances for charitable contributions. Consult your tax advisor for details.

MATCHING GIFTS—Your gift to Downtown Languages could be matched dollar for dollar by your employer.
