2020 Giving Campaign
“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” — Winston Churchill
At the academy, we have NEEDS. Since we have become a stand alone ministry we are raising 100 percent of our funding from scratch. We NEED financially committed families and businesses to come alongside us to provide for the needs of our students. Monthly at the Academy we believe God for a miracle and we NEED that miracle and are asking for you to step out in faith and act. If you can give 10, 20, 50, 100 dollars we NEED you. If you can give BIG we NEED you!!Your support is crucial to our efforts to help our students become working and contributing adults in our community.
