How to Donate


DEF launched in the spring of 1989 with the goal of benefiting the community by funding innovative educational programs.  Since we operate entirely by a dedicated group of volunteers, nearly all of the money we raise is funneled back into the community, where educators and learners are eager to put your contributions to work.


DEF is a tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, EIN #04-3069483.  Thank you for your donation.
