Current Campaigns 

“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!!

Nest Builders

At The Nest Academy, we are actively filling in the educational and emotional gaps. We need your help to make our efforts go even further! You can help us educate and empower our students.

Lunch angels

Nutrition is one of the single most important factors when it comes to our students’ development. Proper nutrition is essential for success in school. We hope that we can count on your help.

kitchen angels

This kitchen renovation is important to us because it will help the Academy save thousands of dollars per year. In return, we will be able to use those resources to impact our students in a deeper way.
