2022 Annual Fund
The Annual Fund provides a better education for New Life Academy students as we work together toward shared goals and build a stronger community for all of us.
From October 3 to November 11, 2022, NLA will focus on building our community through improving the educational experience and focusing on projects that will grow students to become Faith-filled and Future-ready leaders. It also includes fun community events, regular updates, and information on NLA’s strategic goals.

Projects to be Funded by This Year’s Annual Giving Campaign:
Why are we having the Annual Fund?
The purpose of an annual giving campaign is to work together as a community on specific projects that will propel NLA forward to achieve our goals for our students and families. It’s a definite period that builds excitement and encourages involvement from everyone, students included.
What is different this year?
This year, funds will be used for the Annual Fund projects as soon as we reach our goal in mid-November and will be implemented in 2023, making an immediate impact on students’ education and our community. There will not be a matching gift challenge.
What is the same this year?
Giving that positively impacts our community hasn’t changed.
What should I give?
Parents, staff, students, grandparents, alumni, and alumni parents are encouraged to give generously to meet the goal of raising $200,000 by November 11 to fund all the projects. A general guide is that each NLA family consider a gift of $1,000. It makes it meaningful when everyone gives according to their ability. If you can give more to improve our school, please contribute more. If you cannot give $1,000, joyfully provide what you can. Every gift makes a difference!
What happens when we exceed the goal?
We can do more! For all funds raised over $200,000, 50% of the overage will be used to make an NLA education accessible to families through Variable Tuition, and 50% will be used for general classroom and facility improvements.
Will monthly giving and pledges all count toward the goal?
Yes. You can pledge during the campaign and fulfill the gift by the end of 2022. Or you can choose a monthly commitment option to spread your giving over a 12-month period.
Can I designate my gift?
No. Our goal is to fund all the projects. If we work together, we can fund all these priorities!
Is my gift tax deductible?
Yes, your gift is tax deductible, and a charitable receipt will be issued by the NLA Educational Foundation.
How will my gift be recognized?
Every parent, grandparent, staff, trustee, alumni, and alumni parent will be listed together alphabetically by last name in an annual report. No giving amounts will be listed. Students will not be listed. You can choose to remain anonymous if you wish.
