The Eagle Gala is our largest fundraiser that directly benefits the LCA Annual Fund. We are so thankful for everyone who attended the fun-filled evening or donated to the event.
At most independent Christian schools, tuition alone does not cover the full cost of education each year, and LCA is no exception. Supporting the Annual Fund provides the school with the essential operating dollars that bridge the gap between our tuition revenue and the full cost of providing a quality Christian education for our students. Also, high participation in the Annual Fund campaign reflects a strong school commitment from family, friends, and alumni!
For more than three decades, Lexington Christian Academy has been equipping students to be extraordinary thinkers and decision makers who honor Christ. We are grateful to you, our loyal supporters, for recognizing the value of Christian education in the lives of our children. Every gift, regardless of the amount, and every donor makes a positive difference. It's not too late to donate! Use the DONATE HERE button on the right to make a donation.
LCA is recognized by the IRS as a Tax-Exempt Nonprofit Organization.
2023 Eagle Gala Thank You
As I write this letter, I am reminded of all the amazing things God has done for our school during the 2022-23 school year! Being part of our LCA family is truly a blessing, and we see God's promises come to life daily, both on and off our campuses. As we are closing out the 2022-23 school year and preparing for the next school year, I wanted to take a moment to update you on our spring Eagle Gala.
On behalf of our Board of Directors and Executive Leadership Team, thank you to everyone who participated in our 4th Annual 2023 Eagle Gala. Whether you attended the evening, bid on an item, and/or donated to the event, the evening was a huge success! Because of you, we were able to have a net profit from the Gala of $184,250. We had 354 attendees at the event, and we had 715 Gala supporters who served as Gala sponsors or donors. I also want to thank our Gala Committee under the direction of Jennie Hurst, Annual Fund and Alumni Manager, for the weeks of work involved in planning such a comprehensive gathering.
As you have heard us emphasize earlier, tuition alone does not cover the full cost of education each year at many Christ-centered independent schools. LCA is no exception. Financial support through our Eagle Gala and other philanthropic endeavors provides our school with the essential operating dollars that bridge the gap between our tuition revenue and the full cost of providing a quality Christian education for all our students. Because of your generosity, after covering our gap, funds raised from the Gala will be used for specific needs identified by our principals including upgraded classroom furnishings, academic subscriptions, science equipment, and supports to cover the additional expenses of our annual Spiritual Emphasis Week on both campuses. In addition, some of the proceeds from the Gala will be used to support our intervention programs on both campuses with standing desks, student planners, and other student "hands-on" manipulatives.
Looking ahead to next year, our 5th Annual Gala is scheduled for Friday night, April 19, 2024, at the Central Bank Center. I encourage you save the date now for this exciting evening.
Again, thank you for your faithful support and consistent prayers for our school. God bless you richly as you enjoy the remaining weeks of summer. We look forward to seeing you soon!
