While Giving Tuesday has come and gone, we wanted all of you to learn of a $500,000 challenge grant ($382,545 still to be matched) taking place at Jackson Hole Classical Academy (JHCA) to provide tuition assistance for students.
Key supporters at the school are quadrupling every dollar from $1 to $100. Donations over $100 are doubled.
Jackson is perceived as a wealthy community, but the student body reflects families who live here year ’round: construction workers, teachers, nurses…More than half of the families need some help with the tuition.
A classical education inspires a life-long pursuit of Truth, Beauty and Goodness. The Christian tradition of love for God and neighbor is held high, and other traditions are kept: the Pledge of Allegiance, the Lord’s Prayer, the Golden Rule.
Throughout the challenging curriculum that includes Latin and Great Books are embedded important aspirational values of a virtuous life such as courage, kindness, wisdom, citizenship, and perseverance.
We encourage you to visit the JHCA website, a 501(c)(3), to donate. Or, you can send a check to P. O. Box 7466, Jackson, WY 83002 made out to Jackson Hole Classical Academy.
Your donation is tax-deductible, but the greater reward is knowing you are both helping a child get a fabulous education and also blessing the hard working parents who sacrifice significantly to contribute their share of the tuition.
