Supporting Whitefield Academy
The cost to educate a child is more than we charge for tuition. This difference is intentional because we believe every family who wants their children to have the Whitefield experience should be able to receive it.
There is a disparity of approximately 14% between required fixed costs and our discretionary income. We bridge this gap through the generous support of our Annual Fund, Benefit and other programs. We are able to fulfill our mission by partnering with people like you who believe in what we are doing.
Our Annual Fund is the foundation of all giving programs at Whitefield. It is the fund designated by Whitefield to bridge the gap between the total cost of educating a student and the amount paid in tuition.
Contributions to our Annual Fund provide a steady supply of unrestricted money that can be used for a variety of purposes including financial aid, scholarships, personnel costs, facility operations, equipment purchases and other needs to keep our school running smoothly and efficiently. Unrestricted gifts give us the flexibility to respond in a timely manner to opportunities and unexpected challenges.
On a broad scale, Whitefield desires to establish an endowment that will supplement the needs of the school on an annual basis. The earnings from our endowment will allow Whitefield to expand and grow. We are currently seeking five to ten seed gifts between $100,000 and $250,000 each to be given over the next five years.
PTF Fall Fundraiser
Our Parent-Teacher Fellowship sponsors a Serve Day fundraiser each fall. Students, parents, and teachers spread out across to Kansas City area to serve ministries and nonprofits. Whether it’s singing songs for grandmas and grandpas, doing yard work, or organizing food pantries, our students love to serve alongside their peers and teachers.
Trivia Night Spring Fundraiser
Every Spring we throw our huge annual Trivia Night Fundraiser. Over 250 Whitefield friends compete for the title of Trivia Champion while eating a great dinner, wearing fun costumes, and raising funds for specific projects around the school.
