December is a joyful month at Hope Academy. And now that joy is doubled!
To help meet the very real needs of children and families in our community, anonymous donors have stepped up to provide a dollar-for-dollar match of any new or additional giving to Hope Academy this school year, up to $225,000.
So, if you’re looking for ways to be blessed and be a blessing this Christmas, here are 7 simple options:
1. Support a student
Almost every child at Hope Academy needs a financial Partner to be here — someone who will make a generous gift to help offset the cost per student.
28 students still need a Partner this school year ($3,650/half, $7,500/full).
2. Give a day
Each year, we trust the Lord to provide for the financial needs of our students — including someone to sponsor each day of Kindergarten!
$650 sponsors one day. 180 need sponsors!
3. Give a book
Help us give each child at Hope Academy a gift-wrapped set of books to take home and enjoy, to encourage literacy and foster a love of learning.
4. Join our Christmas Book Giveaway
Come to our Christmas Book Giveaway Tuesday, December 17th to enjoy a brief program, then deliver and read books with students. It’s one of the most joyful events of the year!
5. Pray for Hope
Please pray with us.
So often, we are reminded that only God can heal wounds, change hearts, unite families, strengthen the weary, heal the sick, open the floodgates of provision, and provide divine wisdom. We are daily in need of God’s grace.
6. Invite a friend
Spread the word!
7. Double Your Gift!
It’s hard not to mention it twice!
If you sponsor a book, day, or student for the first time this school year – or give beyond what you gave last year – your gift can be doubled.
May the Lord bless you with a double portion of joy this Christmas.
With great joy,
Co-Founder & Head of School
