Please Donate Now and Support our Initiatives


Our pride in nurturing Leadership & Public Service High School grows each year. Founded in 1993, it is now home to well over 700 disadvantaged students from the five boroughs of New York City.

Please add your own support to the High School by making a tax- deductible donation to The Friends of Leadership & Public Service High School (or The Friends of HSLAPS, Inc., or The Friends of LPSHS). We are a New York State not-for-profit foundation, formed pursuant to Section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Our EID number (also referred to as a Taxpayer’s ID) is 13-3861112. (You will sometimes need this number when making a donation, for example, in a corporate giving campaign.) Also, please check if you or your spouse’s employer matches contributions, which helps so much. Thank You!!
