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!  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.

You may designate your gift for ELCA EXCELLENCE or FAMILIES HELPING FAMILIES. Gifts to ELCA Excellence allow administrators to have the ability to direct funds to where the need is the greatest. Unrestricted gifts allow us to meet unforeseen needs as they arise and to capitalize on opportunities as they emerge. Gifts designated for Families Helping Families are set aside to be used in our needs-based financial aid program.

What is the

ELCA Fund?




Welcome to the GOAL Program! We are thrilled to have you as part of our vibrant school community, where we utilize every opportunity to make a difference. 


At the heart of the GOAL Program is the incredible opportunity for Georgia taxpayers to play an invaluable role in supporting private K-12 education.

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

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.





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.   


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.


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).
