Contribuir 'con'

"La mayoría de los chicos no hace muchas tareas en casa y no contribuye con ningún dinero."

If I omit 'con', is the sentence still grammatically correct?

Many thanks.

No, you need a preposition after "contribuir".

- Todos en la comunidad contribuimos con trabajo y dinero para construir el hospital. ("Con" for the thing provided to help achieve a goal.)

- Todos en la comunidad contribuimos a reconstruir el hospital. ("A" for the goal the subject helped to achieve.)
- Los chicos no contribuyen a mantener la escuela.
