The Legacy Foundation is our school’s 501c(3) and serves as our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). Each school year parents volunteer their talents and time to support our school’s vision and mission and serve alongside our faculty through various internal and external projects.
The purpose of The Legacy Foundation is to be the outreach of our school and broaden our students understanding of the needs of others while encouraging and growing a heart of selflessness and generosity.
Each school year, our goals for The Legacy Foundation are to fulfill two needs. One locally and one globally to leaving a lasting legacy of love for those in need.
1). Locally each April, we will support an elementary school in the Moore or Oklahoma City Public School District by serving in an area they need. This could be done through beautification, repairs, teacher/student meals, filling backpacks etc. This project is referred to as The Legacy Project.
2). Globally each March, we will fund the installation of a new water well through Water for Life for an African Village in need. The cost of one water well is $2500.00. Think of the lifesaving and future building impact this one well has the potential to make!
3). Continue sponsorship of three children through World Vision. These three children have grown with us over the years and are from Brazil, Haiti and Malawi. We participate in the celebration of their birthdays, academic success and family success. These three children are a part of our classrooms just as much as your children are a part of ours. We pray for them. We discuss what life and school looks like for them. What needs do they have and how can we meet them. By sponsoring and including these children in our daily life we are teaching our students how to look outwardly rather than inwardly. To identify areas of need and create solutions to help those in need.
Funding for these projects is obtained through one annual fundraiser over the course of the Fall semester. Families are only responsible for sharing the name and contact information of small business and corporate donors who are interested in making a tax deductible donation to The Legacy Foundation. Donations received will directly support the local and global outreach initiatives each year and any remaining funds will be used for school improvements and needed capital to raise funds for our next school site. The Legacy Foundation will not participate in any product related fundraising. Our families already support us in such amazing ways and we are so very grateful for all of their support over the years.
