Annual Giving

Our Annual Fund giving has increased this year, but we still haven’t met our goal.  In order to cover the needs of our school, we continue to need annual funds.  This year annual funds are being directed to Security upgrades, Staff Professional Development, and facility improvements to name just a few.  As we continue to look ahead, we have a few projects on the horizon.  Our goal is to replace the metal doors at the entrances to our main building and Activities Center.  These new doors would include a automated locking system and card swipe entrances.  This comes at a cost over $200,000.  We would also like to add additional parking to the front of campus, which will require major dirt work and a retaining wall.  This would add approximately 20-30 much-needed parking spaces and come at a cost of $25,000.    If you are interested in supporting either of these projects or would like to contribute to annual giving, please contact Sally Allen at sallen@clarksvilleacademy.com.
