RedThreadHandsNamed from a Chinese proverb, an invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet regardless of time or place or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle but will never break.

How will money raised be used?

✴ The mission is to secure resources for the strategic priorities that will enable WIA to develop a world class International Baccalaureate education. Funds will advance academic and classroom enrichment,  teacher and parent recommended initiatives and the learning environment. Funds for 2015-2016 will focus on IB enrichment and resources, IB training and education for teachers, students, administration, and the school’s families.

✴ The annual fund provides for the difference between what the state provides in funding and what it actually costs to deliver an outstanding and progressive education.

✴ Donations made to the annual fund are tax deductible; the governing board of Wesley International Academy is a 501c3.

What is the fundraising goal?

Besides the 100% participation goal, we aspire to raise $50,000 this first year which breaks down to approximately contributions of $98 per family at Wesley International Academy. And upon further breakdown, this contribution is less than $10/month within a school year. We greatly appreciate any and all donations and any amount contributed helps us reach our 100% participation goal. Those who can donate more, we ask you to help us reach our goal! The $98 per family contribution is just an average recommendation if we had 100% participation at that level. We ask you to give what you can! 100% of your donation is tax deductible and benefits all of the students at Wesley International Academy. We encourage you to ask extended family members of our Wesley community, friends, neighbors and community members also give to Wesley International Academy.

Please support our school by contributing and we will reach our participation goal, as well as build towards our financial goal.
