The Free & faithful legacy fund

Help secure 100 seats for youth at Hope Academy by 2032.

Why an endowment?

The Free & Faithful Legacy Fund will help us stay “free and faithful” in our mission and open doors of opportunity for future students at Hope Academy.

Hope Threatened

Our culture is shifting radically, in growing opposition to the values and beliefs of Christianity. Christ-centered organizations must swim harder than ever to remain faithful to the Gospel. Hope Academy is committed to remaining free from government and corporate intervention; and faithful to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 

Giving Shift

Younger donors less likely to support faith-based or educational endeavors.

Teacher Shortage

Fewer teachers and widening private/public pay gap.

Government Intervention

Surge in religious freedom challenges, mostly
related to marriage and sexuality beliefs.
