How Can You Help?

First, you can help by supporting and donating to the Dothan Education Foundation and its programs of Yes We Can! Dothan and Adopt-A-School! Dothan.  We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and depend on community support to continue. Donations may be tax deductible and donation envelopes are available.  Also, teachers, may donate by payroll deduction.  Contact us or the DCS accounting department for payroll deduction forms.

Also, you can help by contacting the Adopt-A-School! Dothan program.  They are seeking volunteers to help with projects several times a year, including processing items donated from local businesses and other miscellaneous tasks and projects.

Each school has conveyed to the Adopt-A-School! Dothan program a wish list of needs including guest speakers for career day events, reading programs, tutoring, campus clean-up days, small school repairs, painting and much more – perhaps your skills could help fulfill them! Ask us how.

Business & Industry

Businesses can and do play a gigantic part in improving public education in our city. Local companies can get involved by “adopting” a class, school, club, or special project to enrich our children’s education and provide the much needed resources still needed due to budget shortfalls. Learn more about Adopt-a-School Dothan! to see how you can begin improving our education system.


The role of religious and civic groups in the success of D.E..F is to attend events, volunteer, become an adopter in the Adopt-A- School! Dothan program, and find ways to promote a love of lifelong learning among your congregation or members. You can truly add to the quality of life in your community with your support of the Dothan Education Foundation and its partnering organizations.


Citizens of Dothan can also support the D.E.F. and its programs even if they do not have a child in Dothan City Schools.  You are still a member of the Dothan community, and your input and support is essential to ensure our students receive the best public education available.
