As a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, the Sultana Education Foundation relies on contributions from the communities it serves to fulfill its mission.  More than 85% of students served by the Foundation attend Maryland Public Schools.  Approximately half of these schools receive Title I designation from the Maryland State Department of Education, indicating they have high rates of poverty among the student body.  Thanks to generous support from our 600+ members, Sultana is able to provide tuition support to 80% of the 12,000 students it serves each year.

We hope you will consider supporting the Sultana Education Foundation by becoming an annual member at one of the levels listed below..
