Dallas ISD 2016 Goal "33 in 33"
33 schools to raise $33,000
It's once again time to give from the heart!  

Common Cents "Pennies from the Heart" is a student-driven educational program offered exclusively through Dallas ISD to teach philanthropy by enabling students to play an active role in raising money for their communities.

 This 19 year old program teaches awareness of community needs, involves students in community giving, and promotes community service.   Last year 24 Dallas ISD schools participated in this program and raised over $27,000 for non-profit organizations in the Dallas area.  
Please join us in our efforts to raise $33,000 for local non-profit organization.
