Ways to Give
Pray for Hope
There is no greater way to give to Hope Academy than to pray for our school: the students, families, teachers, and for our continued faithfulness to the mission that God has given to us.
We greatly benefit from regular volunteers who are interested
in offering weekly reading assistance, supervision, or other volunteer
opportunities. Volunteer needs are updated regularly on our volunteer

Donating to Hope
(If you've never visited Hope, we invite you to attend an upcoming event to learn about our mission.)
Become a Supporter - Supporters provide one-time and/or recurring gifts to help provide inner-city youth with a Christ-centered education. Small recurring monthly gifts of $10, $25, of $100 go a long way.
Become a Day Sponsor - Day Sponsors partner with 20 kindergarteners who don't yet have a Partner. Through a gift of $540 you can sponsor a day for all 20 of these students to receive a remarkable, Christ-centered education.
Become a Partner (Sponsor a Student)- Nearly two-thirds of our school's funding comes through generous individuals, churches, and foundations that partner with an individual student.. Read more about our Partner Sponsorship Program here.
Be a Boaz Partner - As we continue to double the size of our Middle School and High School, we pray for 7-9 Boaz Partners each year who can commit to provide a gift of $50,000-$150,000. Learn more here.
