At Surge, we realize we cannot be our best without help from you.

By donating to Surge, you’re investing in the development, connection and empowerment of the next generation of senior education leaders of color, who will transform the systematic experience for our children and our communities.

The Surge Institute is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, therefore all monetary donations to the Surge Institute are tax deductible.

“Surge doesn’t end in development; it ends in metamorphosis. I entered conflicted and, honestly, confused regarding my work, my connection to our city, and my future in education. I exit confident in myself, my impact, and my mission. I exit connected to an amazing network of Surge siblings and family. I “exit” consciously knowing there is no “exit” from family and I’m a better educator for having been welcomed into this community.”

~D. Nigel Green, Assistant Principal, Muchin College Prep

“As a first generation college graduate cultivating a career, Surge closes the gap – providing me with a support network, skills and critical access that I did not realize I was missing.”
