Get involved

The Bridge Avenue School is primarily funded through donations from individuals. We are also supported in part by churches, businesses, and civic groups. Please consider donating to The Bridge Avenue School. Here are some ways in which you can donate:

1. Financial support

The Bridge Avenue School is a registered 501(c)3 organization and all financial donations are tax deductible. Please make checks out to:

The Bridge Avenue School
5412 Franklin Blvd
Cleveland, OH 44102

Or contribute via Paypal:


2. Contribute your time

The Bridge Avenue School utilizes a small army of volunteers in and out of the school building. If you would like to work with students at the school or work with school supplies or a computer at home, please visit our Volunteer page for more information.

3. Contribute stuff

Our students earn "school money" in a token economy that teaches financial literacy and other skills. We are always looking for cool stuff for the school store as well as school supplies, office store gift cards, books, art supplies, etc. Please consider donating some stuff. These donations are also tax deductible.

4. Provide a meal or be a lunch helper

The Lunch Provider Program is an opportunity for individuals and/or small groups to support the students of The Bridge Avenue School by providing a healthy lunch each day school is in session. For some students, this lunch may be the only nutritious meal they may eat that day. For more information see the lunch calendar page.

I donate because I know that everything I give makes an impact in the life of a child right here in Cleveland.
