Charting Impact

Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

  1. What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
    By fully funding all the programs and needs of CCA the foundation aims to enrich the lives of every student every day.
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    The CCA Foundation's strategy is to support all of the programs of CCA by providing the funding needed to bring educational and enrichment opportunities to the students.
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    The foundation is staffed with a full time executive director and 2 part time support staff. In addition, the foundation has a large volunteer board dedicating their time and talents in executing and achieving the fundraising goals. Along with the staff and volunteer board, there is a vast group of parents and the community as a whole that support the foundations efforts in focusing on the students and the quality of their high school experience.
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    The foundation will be successful if we are able to fully fund and meet the financial goals of all of the programs benefiting the students at Canyon Crest Academy.
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    Currently we have been able to fully fund the programs that contribute to the success of every student every day at CCA.

    However it is our goal to obtain participation from all of the parents in supporting the foundation, that is to say we hope we will someday achieve 100% participation from all the parents whose child attends CCA.

STATEMENT FROM THE President

"Here at Canyon Crest Academy every child has an opportunity. Whether it is an opportunity to be an athlete, actor, singer, dancer, musician, photographer, cinematographer, researcher or humanities scholar, your child has the opportunity to explore and shine in any of these areas. No matter your child's skill or interest, the Canyon Crest Academy Foundation is committed to helping your child -- our students -- explore these opportunities.
Of course, without the generous donations from our parents to the CCA Foundation, our children would not have these tremendous opportunities. Because of you, our Foundation is able to provide our students with financial support to achieve these great accomplishments in academics, the arts, and athletics.
CCA's 2014 - 2015 budget is not unlike those of the past few years. Our school continues to face ongoing challenges of a significant gap between public funds available and funds needed to keep our programs and school at the very top. Therefore, we turn to you, returning or new CCA parents, to help us bridge that gap - with donations to the CCA Foundation to meet our Academics, Athletics, and Envision Arts program needs.
Our financial goal for the 2014 - 2015 academic year is to raise $1,000,000 dollars to bridge this gap between public funding and CCA's needs. This $1,000,000 dollars will enable our school to continue to offer the exceptional educational opportunities that are the hallmark of CCA. Our goal is reached family by family but it applies to ALL students. Whether we are funding guest artists, lab materials for our unique Quest program, new computers or equipment for our technology classes, coaches, counseling resources, graduation and programs like Challenge Day, each and every student at CCA is benefited.
So, I ask for your donation NOW as we begin the school year so we can ensure that all our programs are funded throughout the year. Won't you help us continue to give these opportunities to all our children?"
