Thank you for your incredible support for the Academy on our traditional Spring Day of Giving! Collective gifts from 533 members of our community totaled $130,799, which marks the single largest online giving day ever hosted by Albuquerque Academy.
Beyond the impressive sum given on behalf of our students and school, participation levels also grew considerably, particularly with faculty and staff, current parents, and grandparents. Strong participation is always our number one goal, and we are truly grateful for gifts in every amount.
From the first gifts just after midnight to the last gifts just before midnight, this 24-hour event delivered a heartwarming and steady stream of support throughout the day, including an exciting mid-day matching challenge from a generous alumni parent that generated $11,000 for the cause. We are humbled by the outpouring of gifts from members across our community and treasure the connections made with so many after this year that we have all endured.
Beyond the philanthropic support that our independent school requires, giving days provide a rallying point that reminds us that we are all Chargers. Thank you again for your participation, your generosity, and all the ways you support the Academy as we continue to charge ahead as a community. Go Chargers!
