Fork Union Military Academy can only exist because people like you care enough to support the school with your time, talents, and treasure. As a non-profit organization, we must rely on our donors to provide the financial support needed to carry out our mission.
The strength and stability of any non-profit organization like Fork Union Military Academy rest on the bedrock of its endowment. An endowment is money that has been invested so that it generates income from interest or other earnings. This income can then be used to fund scholarships and programs while leaving the principal amount untouched to continue earning income.
An endowment is like a fruit tree orchard. The seeds of your donations are planted and trees added, which are carefully tended and preserved. As those trees increase and grow, they will produce more and more fruit each year that will sustain future generations for many decades into the future, in perpetuity.
While annual giving produces an immediate impact and benefit during a year, gifts to the endowment have a permanent and lasting impact, ensuring that the mission of Fork Union Military Academy can continue long into the future.
Fork Union Military Academy's endowment currently totals just over $20 million, and within the next few years, our goal is to grow our endowment to at least $50 million.
Many companies offer matching gift programs, some even matching dollar for dollar. You can perhaps double the impact of your donation just by asking your company to match your contribution. The guidelines and requirements for matching gifts can vary from company to company, but it is often an easy way to increase the impact of your gift.
It is quick, simple, and secure to make a gift online to Fork Union Military Academy, and designate your gift to the purpose you wish, or make it as an unrestricted gift to be used where it is needed most.
