With your help, the Maryland Alliance of Public Charter Schools can continue to provide advocacy, support, and services for charter schools across the State. Whether we offer resources for new school developers working to turn a concept into reality or assist schools that have operated for a decade or more, your donation helps safeguard charter schools' autonomy, equal access to state/local funding, and adherence to high academic standards so that all public school options are quality options.

Online donations are quick and easy using our secure credit card and Paypal transactions. We welcome donations of all sizes. Thank you for your support!
