Support Our School

Doing a Lot with a Little

As a charter school, Founders Classical Academy operates with a smaller budget and fewer resources than the other public schools in our neighborhood. We are proud to provide our students with an excellent education on a small budget, and we are grateful to the supporters who contribute their volunteer time and generous donations to help us bridge the funding gap.

Donations are tax deductible and go directly to the school.

How to Support Founders Classical Academy

Make a Gift

Just like public schools, charter schools receive state funds based on the average daily attendance of students.

But, they do not receive funds from local tax revenue, or, in most cases, state facilities funding.

Charter schools like ours work to make up the difference with fundraising.

As a public charter school, we do a lot with a little. The support of parents and generous members of the community is essential for our continued success.

Volunteer Your Time

Parent and community volunteers play an essential role at Founders Classical Academy. Whether you volunteer for just one hour or over a hundred hours, your help is essential in supporting the education of our students. Some volunteers may assist in the classroom with instructional or clerical tasks. Others may help shelve books in the library, assist during lunch, or work with the PTO on fundraisers. Your volunteer efforts teach our children the importance of spending time in the service of a worthy cause.
