Matching Grant Campaign

December 1, 2023

A letter from Principal O’Neil


Dear Families of Christian Life Academy:

We are excited and very grateful to announce that once again, a small group of generous donors have offered to match any donations given to CLA for the month of December!

As you know, prices are skyrocketing and requests for financial aid are higher than ever. Your donations help the school offer financial aid to families who otherwise may not be able to attend. In addition, your donations help offset the ever-rising costs of running the school.

Your faithful giving in the past has helped Christian Life Academy to:

  • Work with a marketing company to increase our enrollment
  • Provide professional development for our staff
  • Complete necessary security updates
  • Extend financial aid and scholarship opportunities to families who otherwise would not be able to send their child(ren) to CLA
  • Install a new playground
  • One parent wrote…

“My son started attending CLA in 3rd grade after struggling academically and socially in the public schools. The teachers and staff at CLA built him up with academics, the Bible and God’s love while nurturing him through some difficult times.   This year our son will be graduating from CLA with honors and is very well prepared for high school.  He has been equipped with strong academic and social skills and with a desire to learn.  He has also learned the value in choosing his friends wisely and keeping close to his Savior.  We will be forever grateful to everyone at CLA.  I pray that CLA goes through 12th grade someday – I would be the first in line to sign up.  We hit a home run with CLA, and you will too!” 

That’s why we’re asking for your support today.  ALSO, a group of generous donors is matching every dollar we receive now through December 31st! Your gift will have twice the impact!

Your tax-deductible gift helps Christian Life Academy fulfill its mission of equipping this generation to become fully devoted and developed followers of Christ. You can give online HERE or you can text GIVE to our “text-to-give” number, 888-521-5528, or you can mail in a check!

Please give now. Every dollar you contribute will be matched (up to $10,000), doubling your impact.

We appreciate you and your continued support of Christian Life Academy. May God bless you and your family for your gift and prayers for our school!
