Prayers for a Miracle & Other Giving

Financial and wealth planned gifts help keep UCA operating & enhance the experience of the students at UCA. Thank you for prayerfully considering how you can make a difference for students at UCA.

Some Giving Options


Prayers 4 a Miracle:
Praise God for His blessings through the UCA alumni, faculty, and friends. If you want to pledge a gift, set a recurring or matching gift. Please contact Julie, alumni@ucaa.org or Eric, principal@ucaa.org. There are 22 new students who are facing circumstances many of us can never imagine. Their opportunity to attend UCA could change the course of their walk with God. Knowing that God is caring about you, even though hardship has hit your family, is so powerful in sharing our God of love. Six of these 22 students had a parent pass away, three have a parent battling cancer, five have a disabled parent, and the difficulties of this world continue to increase. That is exactly why your gift of a Christian education is more important than ever. If not at UCA, then please make a difference somewhere.

Give Online by clicking “Give a Gift” at right, then note in the description on the final page, “Praying 4A Miracle.”

Give by phoning Julie or the UCA Business Office, set up an EFT or schedule monthly gifts by credit card or EFT.

Upper Columbia Academy is a prayerful campus where students are taught to seek God in their academic, social, and daily lives. Those circumstances are impacting their families’ financial means. Together, we are praying that the students will experience the Christian environment of UCA this school year.

Stepping out in faith, we have asked these families to come registration day, August 20, trusting that God wants them to benefit from the family atmosphere of UCA. We know for Him, the $77,950 is easy. But to us, to these students, it’s going to take a miracle. The name Prayers for a Miracle came from prayers with families, they prayed that a miracle would happen.

Please pray sincerely for these 22 students and for all of our Adventist schools. Your prayers will continue to impress God’s will to those listening for His instructions.

 

 

 

Alumni Annual Fund:
The Annual Fund is the depository of unrestricted gifts to Upper Columbia Academy, funding projects of current need on campus, approved by Administration and the Master Plan committee. Examples of past projects are: Band room expansion, remodeling the Power House, dorm bathroom remodels, new buses, and etc., which facilitate a good working program for our students at UCA. Upcoming projects will include a bus barn.

Principal’s Fund:

This fund is a way to show special appreciation to our campus faculty for the untold hours of time and energy that they pour into our young people. This is a way to provide the means to pay for a class they wish they could afford, a particular piece of equipment they would like to integrate into their teaching, or maybe just a gift card to go out to dinner, to re-group. This is a special way to say “Thank You – you are valued.” A most worthy cause.

Vehicles:
School vehicles are needed for transporting students on class field trips, home leaves, airport drop off and pick up, doctors appointments, and town trips for supplies.

  • Needed: Van – mini or full size
  • Needed: Car in good running condition (front wheel or AWD) – ours is on life support!
  • Needed: 16’ enclosed trailer
Single Parent Scholarship Fund:

This fund is for donors who wish to aid one parent homes in their struggle to give their children an Adventist education. Established by the parents of an alumnus who felt impressed to do something for the “widows and orphans,” this fund is in growing need as we see more and more students facing these types of life challenges. Many could not be here at all, were it not for this scholarship.

Worthy Student Fund:

$180,000+ is needed every year, in addition to special scholarship and matching funds! Annual support or monthly gifts are urgently needed. Job losses have affected the parents of our students, creating some very difficult situations. If you have the ability to help in any way… in any amount… let God use you to bless a student!

The Sabbath Project:

To be intentional about making Sabbath a special day, the faculty is looking for ways to remind students of the special Sabbath blessings. We appreciate those who fund our efforts to create special table settings for meals, and funds for projects the students can do.

Needed Items:

Used or new bicycles that students could check out for Sabbath afternoon rides / new or gently used canoes that could be used on a weekend into nature. Especially for students who are too far from home to go for home leave, this equipment would provide the means for a much appreciated get-away with faculty who volunteer to take groups out for these types of outings.

Gifts in Kind:
UCA is happy to receive antiques, collectibles, automobiles/trucks, sports vehicles, time shares, property, stocks & bonds, etc. Typically, all gifts to UCA are tax deductible, an .
