“We support FRA to ensure we’re able to carry on the legacy of kids getting to experience what we did—individually and as a family. We want to put our money toward a place we’re deeply committed to and care about supporting and ensuring future stability.”

– Larry and Bolin Stumb,
Legacy Family Parents and Grandparents

 

 

OUR GOAL
Grow our resource base through broad participation with a focus on building our endowment and funding our programmatic and campus priorities

STRATEGIC RATIONALE
As FRA nears optimal enrollment, the school must continue to enhance the educational experience for current and future students. Increasing philanthropic support for school initiatives ensures an exceptional education and provides access for families from a wide range of socioeconomic backgrounds. Endowing financial aid for students is critical to delivering our mission as an inclusive Christian community. Disciplined stewardship and a focus on expanding the school’s resources will help ensure a strong future for generations of FRA families.

ACTION STEPS

  • Grow the endowment to control tuition increases and support exceptional learning opportunities for students while ensuring access and opportunity for families
