Development Letter

We need your financial support to implement academic and educational priorities that will have a direct and immediate impact on our students and teachers.

Charter schools are tuition free and receive nearly 30% LESS state and local government revenue than traditional public schools, and must provide their own facilities and transportation.  SWA is challenged by our bare bones budget to cover our operating expenses, and we face significant financial challenges that our local public schools take for granted!

At SWA, our students experience smaller class sizes and a rigorous curriculum with dedicated teachers and strong parent involvement.  Because of our dedicated teachers and administration, SWA is one of the most sought after schools in Wake County.

To address the needs of supporting our top priorities, including cultural arts, technology, sciences (STEM), athletics, tutoring, extra-curricular and enrichment programs, our school has created the SWA Annual Fund for which we will seek donations from our families, educational foundations, local businesses, and individual investors from our local community that share our united vision.

Everyone here at SWA hopes you will donate a financial gift to help us accomplish our educational and academic goals.  No matter how big or small your donation, your participation is what truly matters for improving the academic life of every student!

Thank you for considering a gift to SWA.  Your gifts reflect your belief in our mission and core values.  We are deeply grateful to our current and new supporters who have made

Southern Wake Academy a philanthropic priority.

Southern Wake Academy is designated as a 501(c)3 by the IRS.  Your donations are considered a charitable gift, and are tax deductible to the maximum extent of the law.  We encourage our donors to consult with their tax advisors to ensure their donations meet IRS requirements.
