THE KINGDOM ATHLETE

The Kingdom Athlete is

...a child of God daily surrendered to His will and for His service,
...an athlete who seeks to glorify God through his actions,
...an athlete who adopts the “Win the Day” philosophy in all areas of life,
...an athlete who is humble and grateful for his gifts and opportunities,
...an athlete who is submissive to authority,
...an athlete who has a teachable spirit,
...an athlete who leads by serving others,
...an athlete who strives for victory, gives perfect effort and never quits.
...an athlete who understands he represents more than himself.
...an athlete who is not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ and seeks opportunities to share the good news with teammates, parents, officials, opponents and to the multitude of children that will look to them as they model Christ-like leadership.

Eagle's Landing Christian Academy relies on charitable gifts above tuition and fees to fund our mission of Empowering Students to Impact the World for Christ. It is important that each of our families, who have entrusted their beloved children to us, demonstrate their heart for our ministry by participating in the ALL IN ELCA Fund Campaign.  Your participation, at any amount, has the potential to bless our school exponentially by attracting outside organizations who wish to support Christian education.

ALL-IN is defined as being enthusiastically supportive or fully committed.

That is exactly how we want you to feel as part of the ELCA family!  The 2022-2023 ELCA Fund Blitz has ended, but the campaign continues all year (through June 30, 2023).  We are asking each of our families to commit to partner with us by being ALL IN and in giving to the  ELCA Fund in some way.  We strive to reach 100% participation from our families in donating to the ELCA Fund because it is instrumental in providing “the little extras” that set our school apart.  These include lower student/teacher ratios, superb academic  rigor, and championship level fine arts and athletic programs.  Tuition alone does not afford us the means to provide this level of excellence in every area, and unlike tuition, because ELCA is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, and gifts are tax-deductible as allowed by law.

Secondly, increased parent participation helps us to leverage support from outside foundations. In the recent past, we have been blessed to receive two grants totaling $575,000.  These grants were awarded, in large part, because of a steady increase in the giving percentage from our families.

 

This means that your gift, no matter the amount, has the prospect of making an exponential difference in the lives of our students.

 

As we continue to seek out grants, it is imperative that our parent giving percentage increases even further…with the ultimate goal being 100%.

 

We cannot achieve this without YOU.

 

So don't delay, give or pledge today!

How Does This Help Our School?

You are already paying income taxes to the state. Why not redirect some of those taxes to provide Georgia children with Greater Opportunities for Access to Learning (GOAL)? When you redirect your Georgia income taxes to GOAL, you can designate that the contribution be used to provide financial aid at Eagle's Landing Christian Academy. Our school is then able to:

 

     • Increase the amount of financial aid that can be offered to new students

     • Preserve more of our existing financial aid to assist families already enrolled

     • Increase the funds available to improve educational and extracurricular offerings

     • Further our mission by reaching more families desiring Christian education

SIMPLE WAYS

TO SUPPORT ELCA

The ELCA Fund is a yearly fundraising appeal to bridge the gap between the total cost of operating our school and tuition revenue.  Contrary to popular belief, tuition does not cover the full cost of educating each student.  It takes tuition and charitable donations to provide the distinctive qualities that ELCA offers including smaller classes, exemplary teachers, exceptional academics, fine arts, and athletic programs, more personal attention, and an unapologetically Christian foundation for our students.  Also, gifts to the ELCA Fund are tax-deductible where tuition is not.

  

 

WHERE DO THE DOLLARS GO?

 

Gifts to the ELCA Fund - Excellence supplements our operating budget and provides unrestricted resources for the school's immediate needs.  These needs include faculty/staff development, technology, program support for all levels of the school, and facility maintenance.   

 

Gifts to the Families Helping Families Fund provides needs-based tuition assistance to current and new families who desire Kingdom Education for their children.   

 

HOW CAN MY DONATION MAKE A DIFFERENCE?

 

Every gift makes a difference, regardless of the amount.  For some families, the gift could be as small as $5 - $10.  For others, it could be hundreds or thousands of dollars.  Giving comes from the heart.  We encourage you to pray and give according to your means to support our ministry.  Also, increased participation in giving by the ELCA community, including our ministry team, faculty/staff, parents, and alumni helps pave the way for potential future support from outside organizations and charitable foundations.

 

 

WAYS TO GIVE TO ELCA

ELCA accepts gifts in a number of different ways including cash, credit cards, appreciated stock, and matching gifts.  ELCA is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, therefore gifts to the school are tax-deductible as provided by law (please consult your accounting professional for additional information).

Please help us reach our goal of 100% family participation by being ALL IN and return your donation or pledge during this 10-day “Blitz.”

 

Families who contribute to the ELCA Fund Campaign receive the following:

  • For a donation of any amount, each ELCA student in your family will receive a homework pass and the family will receive 2 specially designed 2022-2023 ELCA Fund Investor car magnets.
