Who Supports Excel Academy?
Excel Academy is a tuition-free public charter school. A majority of our operating expenses are covered by public dollars.
However, charter schools do not receive funds for extraordinary programming or facilities. Therefore, we rely on the generous support of a number of individuals, foundations, and corporations to maintain Excel’s success and impact.
As Excel moves forward with Building for the Future: The Campaign for Excel Academy, our ambitious multi-year $12 million fundraising campaign, we will continue to rely on our philanthropic partners. To date, we have raised $10 million against our $12 million goal.
Over the past couple of years, many of our most generous donors have been compelled by our high school building project. Even though that project is now off the ground and slated to open in 2016, Excel Academy is still focused on raising the growth capital it needs to reach full scale.
