Dynamic Community Charter School is a middle and high school for children with developmental and intellectual disabilities opening in Wake County in August 2014. Dynamic Community Charter School’s Education Plan teams project-based learning with collaborative problem-solving in an effort to better educate our students, prepare them for more productive lives, and help them reach their true potential.

DCCS urgently requires additional funds to open. Governmental funding does not cover many of the start-up costs essential for equipping and furnishing a charter school and is not adequate to provide the necessary specialized support for our exceptional students.

Dynamic Community Charter School has launched our Building a Dynamic Community fundraising campaign to raise $100,000 by July 30th. The DCCS Board is contributing $20,000 in donations to kick-off our campaign, and our committed DCCS families are stepping up to this challenge. The reality is that most DCCS families are burdened with the additional costs of raising children with developmental and intellectual disabilities, so our DCCS families cannot raise these funds alone.

Please join our Building a Dynamic Community campaign.  With our community’s support, DCCS will revolutionize the approach to educating children with developmental and intellectual disabilities. Thank you for your investment in our school and these amazing students!

If the idea of raising money feels a little outside your comfort zone, don’t worry.  You’re not alone. As a community, we will share our collective awkwardness and pool our resources and creative ideas.  We will do what we do and think outside the box.  Our students are worth it, and they deserve an excellent education.  Consider just a few small ideas…

  • a 10 for 10 fundraising chain.  You donate $10 and ask 10 friends to do the same.  Ask each one of your 10 friends to repeat the chain…10 for $10.  If just your initial 10 get $10 donations from 10 more people each, your family will have raised $1110 for DCCS!  But of course, it might not just stop there.:)
  • start a free ETSY shop and sell handmade crafts, donating a portion or all of the proceeds to DCCS
  • decide to buy one less coffee or restaurant meal per week and donate the money to DCCS instead
  • do the decluttering you’ve been meaning to do and host a garage sale; donate the profits to DCCS

What are your creative ideas?  We need your hands and your help.  Please consider carefully how much (not just money but enthusiasm, dedication, resources, and yes, money too) your family, business, civic or religious group can contribute right now toward this effort!
