BOAZ & LEGACY GIVING
Boaz Partners commit to help keep our High School affordable for urban students by providing a sacrificial gift between $50,000-$150,000. Each year we trust the Lord for between $600-$800K in Boaz giving.
Inspired by the extreme generosity shown by Boaz in the book of Ruth, Boaz giving allows us to not increase tuition costs for our low-income families as their students enter our High School program — even though our High School is more costly.
If you’d like to review a copy of our Boaz Partner Packet, or would like to learn more about making a Boaz gift, please contact Jim Stigman, Head of Institutional Advancement, at 612-540-2000 ext. 106 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Having sent our children to Christian schools, we count it a great privilege to help make this same sort of education possible for the youth of the inner-city. The addition of a high school at Hope Academy is an exciting step and so important for the development of godly young men and women for the future. We are excited to see what the next six years bring!”
—Doug & Linda Linder have been Partners to two students at Hope Academy since 2007. Doug is a retired Cargill executive, former board member of Pan American Christian Academy (SPO, Brasil) and Minnehaha Academy (Minneapolis), and member of Hope Academy’s Partnership Council. Linda is a regular Women’s Bible Study teacher and former Board member at University of Northwestern – St. Paul.
“Hope Academy has proven to us that whole life discipleship in Christ–and the hope it holds for the future–simply cannot be successful without the strong foundation they are providing with a Christian education. Hope makes a real difference.”

Our Legacy Partner Society is composed of those who have committed to leave a legacy to inner city youth, either through a gift in their will or trust, or through other planned giving vehicles.
Legacy Partners often make gifts to our Legacy Partner Endowment Fund and endow inner city student scholarships to ensure the long-term affordability of God-centered education for inner city youth. Our prayer is that 100 of our students would one day be sponsored through legacy partner gifts. A legacy gift of $100,000 sponsors a student.
