Giving-More than Turkey and Stuffing

The Academy is joining the ranks of other well-known nonprofits like PBS and NPR to solicit your help now through Dec. 31.

Dear Academy Members: To protect our independence, we’ll never run ads, sell our mailing list, or pay our wonderful course leaders and speakers who volunteer more than 100 hours of time per course. We’re a small non-profit with big business costs: rent, staff, insurance, equipment/computer maintenance, and coffee (okay, that last part isn’t that big business). And we love to offer our scholarships to those who need them!  Because we are committed to keeping tuition costs low, we survive on donations averaging all together about $7,845 a year, which doesn’t even cover the cost of the coffee we drink.

The Academy is something special–An athletic club for the mind where we can all go to connect, think, and learn. If The Academy is a place that enriches your life, please consider this request.

Now is the time we ask. If everyone reading this right now gave $100 (or whatever amount is comfortable to you), our fundraiser would be over within an hour.  If we can reach our goal of  $20,000, we can meet our needs not covered by tuition and membership fees.

Thank you for your consideration and patronage. Please bring checks payable to The Academy in any amount next week or mail them to The Academy, PO Box 3893, Greenwood Village, CO 80155

Corporate and anonymous donations are fine, too.

The Academy for Lifelong Learning wishes to confirm that no goods or services will be provided in exchange for your contribution. The Academy for Lifelong Learning is recognized as tax-exempt by the IRS. Letters will be sent by year end.

Please contact the Academy Directors at info@academyLL.org for questions or concerns.
