Dear TFA Alumni and Alumni Families,
We are excited to introduce a special five-day project that has the potential to make an enormous impact at your or your children’s alma mater, The First Academy.
Before I tell you what the project is, let me tell you why it is important. This project is important because the next generation of students at TFA are important. As TFA alumni and alumni families, we have experienced first-hand the vital role The First Academy plays in the life of a student. Since the very beginning, TFA has been committed to training the next generation of Christian leaders who are prepared for college and life beyond college.
I am writing to boldly ask if you would join me in “giving back” and “giving for” the next generation of students.
The Project: A new Field House, which will include a brand new gymnasium (we still have the same one from when you and I were here) and a brand new weight room that will benefit every student. Currently, we are simply maxed out when it comes to space with almost 1,400 students at TFA.
Our Goal: Our goal is to have every single graduate and graduate family participate at some level, no matter the amount. This goal helps not only to build our alumni community, but is also a strong statement about why TFA is so important in the life of a student. There is no greater compliment to a school than when alumni or alumni families give back.
How You Can Help: A very special friend of The First Academy has offered to match every gift given by alumni up to $50,000. Your gift will be matched dollar for dollar, essentially doubling your gift. Would you help us reach our goal of 100% participation?
How to Participate: You can visit our website to find more details about the project, and also make a gift online at www.thefirstacademy.org/giving (you may also mail in a check if you choose).
Some highlights to look forward to in the next few days:
• Videos from Mr. Kavanagh and Dr. Scott Toenges
• Special contest with Mr. Kavanagh and Dr. Scott Toenges
• Videos from the Class of 1994, 2002, 2008
Thank you so much for your willingness to read this letter and watch these videos.
Matt McGee, Class of 2002
Assistant Head of School
