Mighty Oaks from tiny acorns grow!
Centreville Academy has in the past chosen to operate from a budget that
was totally dependent on tuition, school fees and special fund raising events,
like field day and annual auction.
However, like most K-12 independent schools and colleges, as our operating expense increase due to expansion of our programs, we are initiating something new at CA. We are asking our parents, alumni, CA family and friends for their voluntary support through the "Annual Fund".
The Annual Fund will be the cornerstone of all annual fundraising programs at CA. It is critical to creating and strengthening a comprehensive Academic, Athletics and Arts school program for which CA wants to be known. With the leadership from our Board of Directors, Headmaster, administrative team, faculty and staff, we will be creating a much more comprehensive program. Our CA family wants all CA children, regardless of their grade, interests and abilities, to personally experience broader opportunity to explore, learn and grow the gifts which God has given them.
Simply put, your financial contribution provides direct funding for educational initiatives that current tuition alone cannot cover. A donation to the Annual Fund is the most important way to give because it directly supports CA students and our programs. We value and appreciate all gifts – regardless of size. Participation is the key. We are all blessed differently and for our CA inaugural annual fund, we are seeking 100% participation. We believe everyone can give something. Your participation encourages others to give and sends a message to the community that CA continues to make a difference in the lives of so many people.
Our first Annual Fund goal for the 2017-18 school year is $47,000. This number reflects $1000 for each year CA has been making an impact in this area. When CA meets its annual fund-raising goal, new programs can be undertaken, faculty salaries/benefits can be increased, and other new initiatives can be implemented. Annual Fund gifts are tax-deductible and are typically allocated within the fiscal year they are received. While we prefer that your gift be unrestricted, you may choose to designate your gift to the particular area of the school's operational budget which is most meaningful to you. You may also choose to make an unrestricted gift to be used wherever the need is greatest. Be assured, every penny of your donation will go to where you designated it!
