Prayers for a Miracle & Other Giving
Your Giving at Work
A generous donor blessed UCA with a 49K matching gift for tuition assistance. We are so grateful for your generosity that has met and exceeded the goal! Returning students to UCA tuition assistance for 2017-18 have been met, and now we are raising funds for the coming school year.
Prayers 4 a Miracle:
Praise God for His blessings through the UCA alumni, faculty, and friends. There are 22 new students who are facing circumstances many of us can never imagine. On August 20, 2017. They were affirmed in the power of prayer and God’s leading in their lives. The opportunity to attend UCA was made possible by many donors for various reasons. We know it is God that made this possible because of His plans for these students’ lives. This is just one of the reasons why your gift of an Adventist education is so important. If not at UCA, then please make a difference somewhere.
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 these 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 for a miracle, and on Registration Day, August 20, 2017, a miracle was completed for all 22 students. Praise God!
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 UCA program operation for UCA students.
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.
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
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.
$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!
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.
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.
