Support Crispus Attucks in the ExtraOrdinary Give!

Since last year’s ExtraOrdinary Give, Crispus Attucks has experienced a lot of excitement!
  • Marquis Lupton was brought on-board as Crispus Attucks coordinator and oversaw program expansion and extensive renovations to the Center.
  • We presented another thought-provoking MLK Breakfast, and an impactful Juneteenth celebration.
  • The Infamous Unstoppables drill team is engaging nearly 50 youth per season in confidence-building arts programming, including dance, drill and drumming.
  • The Jackson, Polite, Ford Leadership Institute is back and growing a second cohort of future leaders.
  • And we continue feeding our community through nutritious lunches and a supplemental food pantry.

With your donation, we could do the following…

  • $10 – New programming (Such as JPF, and First Friday Soul)
  • $25 – Sponsors a kid in Drill Team
  • $50 – Helps Fund the Food Pantry Program
  • $100 – Sponsors a kid in the Media literacy Camp
