A sponsor is an individual, group, family, or business who decides to support one or more students each year.
Benefits of becoming a sponsor:
- Opportunity for a personal and rewarding experience knowing that you are helping a child realize dreams.
- Semi-annual updates on your sponsored student or student class to include information on academic and enrichment programs in process and completion.
- Personal thank you card and photo from a student.
- Invitations to student picnics and other special events throughout the year.
- Benefits vary depending on the type of sponsorship.
Class Sponsorship- $80,000 for a class of boys or girls – You choose the grade!
Sponsors may choose to support a class of up to 20 students. Academy Prep will help to arrange a special gathering of the sponsored class and sponsoring person or group. Recognition signage is included with your sponsorship.
Leadership scholarship- $20,000 for four (4) years
Leadership sponsors make a 4-year commitment to support a specific student at $20,000 annually. These sponsors are billed annually and this sponsorship guarantees a four-year private school education for one student.
Champion Scholarship- $20,000 for one year
Champion sponsorships allow individuals, groups, families, or businesses to commit to supporting a child for one year at Academy Prep. Champion sponsorships are made as a one-year pledge and will not be renewed annually unless the sponsor requests to do so.
Co-champion scholarship- $10,000 for four (4) years
Co-champions may choose to support one student or pledge to support that student partially for the entire four years, donating money annually.
Supporting Scholarship- $9,999 and less
A supporting sponsorship is for any individual, group, or business that wishes to designate their gift directly to our scholarship program. Gifts are at least $1,000 or greater at this level.
How it works:
Most donors pay the full amount of their scholarship when they agree to participate in the program, but other payment options exist. For a multi-year pledge, you will be billed annually. You may make your gift of cash or securities. To learn more or to become a sponsor, please contact Rebecca Knowles (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Checks are made payable to Academy Prep Center of Lakeland and can be mailed directly to Academy Prep Center of Lakeland.
