Make a Gift

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



Your gift to the COVID-19 Response Fund will help provide direct assistance to students for basic needs such as food and rent, new distance learning programs to keep them moving forward, connection to reliable information and community resources, and uninterrupted services to help students navigate this new environment.

Our community of immigrant families counts on Downtown Languages as a place for connection, opportunity, and learning. Your contribution gives real, immediate help and keeps that vision alive.

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