Giving Opportunities

 
We are incredibly grateful for your interest in supporting the mission of Franklin Road Academy.


Your philanthropic support plays an important role in our ability to continue to advance our mission to provide a challenging academic experience in an inclusive Christian community with an unwavering commitment to develop leaders of integrity and purpose. However you choose to give, we hope you will make FRA one of your top philanthropic priorities.


Annual Fund

Thanks to the participation of our parents, alumni, faculty and staff, board of trustees, grandparents, parents of alumni, and friends, we have widespread support for the school's top giving priority, the Annual Fund, which benefits every student, in every classroom, every day. It's fundamental to the school's operating budget, and your support of the Annual Fund represents your endorsement of our School.
