2021-22 Annual Fund Campaign
Our mission is to provide an educational experience that is second to none for every student at Longleaf School of the Arts. In order to be the BEST, we must offer qualified and talented staff, a location that can create unique opportunities, and an outstanding curriculum based on the Governor’s School teaching methodologies with an integrated arts focus. We have an amazing Board of Directors who supports the policies and procedures we have in place to make the school's vision and mission a reality. We are very fortunate to have a group of students who desire to learn and expect to be involved in a school community that will allow them to competitively surpass other students regionally and nationally. LSA staff has proven that they are capable of successfully preparing our students for college. We are ready to take our school to the next level, and we need your support!
This year's Annual Fund Fundraiser is based on pledges LSA will receive in honor of Giving Tuesday! Together, we have built a strong foundation during the past eight years. It took teamwork, volunteered time, and donations to get where we are today. We have not reached our fullest potential but desire to continue to work strategically to arrive at that point.
We continue to be extremely grateful for all of our parents and volunteers who recognize our needs and faithfully give to help support our school initiatives. Please know, it takes the support of the entire school community for our school to continue to thrive! We will never reach a point where your donations are not needed. In every school, funding is the greatest challenge to educational excellence, and Longleaf is no different in this regard. As a charter school, Longleaf receives approximately $1,000 less in per-student funding than traditional public schools. Longleaf relies on contributions to its Annual Fund to help make up for this gap in funding. Funds raised enable LSA to enhance the educational experiences provided on a daily basis that we could not otherwise offer.
We ask each Longleaf family to participate in the life and financial support of the school by making a contribution in any amount. Every dollar is greatly valued and appreciated. Our goals for the Annual Fund are to have 100% participation by Longleaf families and to raise $30,000. No amount is too small or too large! A high level of participation from the families Longleaf serves greatly enhances our school’s opportunities when we seek grants.
