How can I donate to Student Sponsor Partners?

There are a number of ways to donate to SSP®:

• Individual One-Time Donations through the SSP Donate Now Page: All donations through our Donate Now page contribute directly to helping SSP students receive a quality education and graduate from high school. Each donation provides additional funding either for specific programs or Student Sponsor Partners’ general operating expense. You may also mail a check to SSP at 424 Madison Avenue, Suite 1002, New York, NY 10017.
