Ticket revenue does not cover the whole cost of Project Graduation.  We need your support.  Here's why:

  • Help keep the kids safe.  In 1983 when we began Project Graduation, Amherst lost a number of kids to drunken driving.  You can help the kids stay safe on graduation night.
  • Every kid should be able to celebrate their ARHS graduation, even if they can't afford it. 

Individual Donations: Every senior should come to the party even if their family cannot afford to contribute, but every family should try to contribute what they can. We hope every family that is able will donate . You can donate online or by check. We are grateful to the senior parents who have donated already. If you have not, you can make an donation as part of your registration process, or else donate by credit card by clicking the button below. You can also mail a check to:

ARHS Project Graduation, c/o Lynn Hayes, 3 Bayberry Lane, Amherst MA  01002
