Annual Fund FAQs:
Q: What is the Annual Fund?
A: The Annual Fund covers the gap between tuition and the actual cost of educating a student at L.E.A.D. Tuition covers only a percentage of our expenses.
Q. Why doesn’t tuition cover the full cost of educating each student?
A: To cover the actual cost of educating a student would require a significant tuition increase. Such an increase would violate L.E.A.D. Academy’s core desire to keep tuition costs low. Our hope and prayer is to enroll as many children as God allows. We believe every child deserves a Kingdom Education. Our funding sources include tuition, fundraising, and donations from community members and businesses. Tax-deductible donations to L.E.A.D. Academy’s Annual Fund directly offset the current year’s operating expenses, thus reducing the annual tuition cost.
Q: How much am I expected to give?
A: As often and as much as you are able. If everyone gives as they are able, we can meet the needs of our students! "Let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or out of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver." 2 Corinthians 9:7
Q: Will a small gift make a difference?
A: Yes! L.E.A.D. Academy needs your participation. All donations count; small contributions grow to large investments!
Q: How do I make my gift?
A: You can make your gift by returning the envelope that was mailed to you with a check, or you can make your payment by bill-pay or e-funds through Sycamore, or through our website, leadacademylions.com.
Q. Will my gift be tax-deductible?
A. Yes! L.E.A.D. Academy is a 501(c)-3 not-for-profit organization, and all gifts are tax-deductible. Our tax identification number is 463044025.
Q: When should I give?
A: While the L.E.A.D. Academy Annual Fund accepts gifts throughout the year, your early gift or pledge reduces the cost of mailings and helps the school with its budgeting and cash flow.
