We need your support
When students learn the value of kindness, service and empathy, they don’t just walk out of school being competent at math and science. They walk away being capable, compassionate people—the future leaders of our community and our businesses. They understand that to lead is to serve.
Fully integrating Character Lives into our schools over the next three years will require community and corporate support. Please invest in our schools and students to create kinder communities and stronger leaders for tomorrow.
Supporting Character Lives will help ensure a future workforce that is driven to serve, lead and improve the world around them.
Character Lives is a locally based nonprofit organization; when you invest in it, you’re investing in our community and future leaders.
The return on investment for Character Lives will be immeasurable. How does one measure life satisfaction and intangible contributions to the community? What we can measure, however, is extraordinary. A recent study from Columbia University indicates that for every $1 invested in social-emotional learning, schools and communities will see a return of $11.

Character Lives would not be able to transform the lives of our students, the culture of our classrooms or the quality of our school, community and workplaces without our generous donors who make the character curriculum and training available for our teachers. Thank you for your support.
