Summit Christian Academy (SCA) has announced that the Goppert Foundation has made a $525,000 pledge to the SCA Legacy of Faith Capital Campaign. The announcement was made at an end-of-year staff and faculty meeting.
The donation is the largest foundation grant SCA has received in its 27-year history.
“For the past six years, SCA has seen tremendous growth, that included a doubling of the secondary enrollment,” shared SCA Head of School Linda Harrelson. “In order to physically accommodate new students and increase course offerings, it is imperative that we build additional classrooms and a new gymnasium. The funds from the generous Goppert Foundation grant will be used for this purpose and help us serve additional students for years to come.”
The SCA Legacy of Faith Capital Campaign will provide students with additional music and general purpose classrooms and one-on-one performing arts practice rooms. In addition, a large gymnasium with locker rooms and weight room facilities will be added to support the growing athletic program.
“The Goppert Foundation is excited to support a campaign that will reach so many children in the Kansas City community,” shared Goppert Foundation Vice President Autumn Markley. “We take pride in financially supporting projects that make a sustainable difference in our community and we feel that supporting the SCA Capital Campaign is a worthy investment in the youth and future of our community.”
