Innovate Fund

Giving to Innovate
Academy & Preparatory School

Innovate Academy is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit.

At Innovate, we are extremely fortunate to have many people who volunteer their time and resources to help our school.

We also are grateful for the generous group of donors whose financial contributions help bridge the gap between tuition and the actual cost to educate our students. Thanks to our generous donors, we raised $200,000 for the Innovate Fund last year! This money has been utilized for facility improvements, playground equipment, to give students a safe learning environment, and to have the best materials for our students to utilize during their educational growth.

2023/2024 School Year Starting Off Strong

At Innovate, we pride ourselves in having an elite academic program, with focus on two core pillars: hiring and maintaining highly qualified staff, and selective enrollment of students. 

What is Innovate Fund?

The Innovate Fund helps bridge the gap in the operating budget between tuition revenues and the actual cost of providing an education at Innovate Academy & Preparatory School. The Innovate Fund sets up our school with the tradition of giving. Thus enriching each student’s mindfulness, financial literacy, life skills, service and community, and personal responsibility to equip students with the tools necessary to become successful, well-rounded adults. 

For the current 2023/2024 school year, our goal is to raise $450,000 in donations to help us reach a healthy financial standing.

Donation Matching 

We’re thrilled to announce we have a head start on fundraising, and an opportunity for you to double your donation! A generous anonymous donor agreed to match any donations made to the Innovate Fund up to $100,000 from now — March to September 1st

Help Us Reach Our Goal: When you donate to the Innovate Fund, you are directly helping us maintain our high standard of education, and continue to grow our offerings. 

Please consider making a tax deductible donation of any amount, to help us continue to thrive and grow. With this additional donation matching incentive, your donation goes further. For example, a donation of $250 becomes $500, and a donation of $5,000 becomes $10,000. Grandparents are welcome to donate too.

Gifts to the Innovate Fund affect everything — teacher and staff salaries, classroom supplies, professional development for faculty, facility improvements, and much more. These gifts allow us to meet our annual budget to fund everything from keeping the lights on to ensuring the best finance and business education for our students.

We sincerely thank everyone for your support in the form of volunteering, tuition, donations to the Innovate Fund, and trusting us to educate your children. And, we deeply appreciate your consideration of any donations through the end of the calendar year that will be matched up to $100,000 in total.
