CAPITAL CAMPAIGN AND ANNUAL FUND
Invest in your child’s future by donating to Voyager Academy today. Our Capital Campaign is designed specifically to raise money towards the cost of purchasing buses that will be used for many activities includinf field trips, athletics and arts competitions, and possible general transportation. The Annual Fund is a simple way for you to support all of the great things we are doing at Voyager and to help us expand our program offerings in academics, extracurriculars, professional development, athletics and the arts!
Every donation counts! If you choose to donate to the Annual Fund, there is a “notes” box that will open and you can specify in the notes if you would like your donation to serve a specific purpose ie, Science Olympiad, Performing Arts etc. Otherwise your generous donation will be used to expand our programs, provide staff support and raises, offer beautification projects and much more.
If you are considering a large donation, please take a moment to review our sponsorship opportunities as our way of saying thank you! Sponsorships provide naming rights, marketing opportunities, brand recognition, and free admission to athletics and/or arts events. You do not HAVE to become a sponsor to make a large donation, but we do want every donor to be aware of this “give back”.
Although this will become our primary focal point for fundraising, many other groups may promote individual fundraising campaigns during the year sponsored by the PTO, Student Council, Team Sports and Arts groups. We appreciate your support and your faith in us to provide your children a wonderful educational experience!

Capital Campaign – Voyager Foundation, Inc.
The purpose of the “Building Our Future Together” capital campaign is to purchase furniture and fixtures for the new elementary and high school buildings and to build a reserve fund that can be put toward permanent financing. The goal is to raise at least $250,000 for each school. This fund is different from the Voyager Annual Fund in that funds raised through the annual fund campaign are used to offset current operations. Funds given to the “Building Our Future Together” campaign are put toward the land, building and equipment for all three schools at Voyager Academy. Pledges can be paid for over a five year period and will be fully tax deductible.
Voyager Annual Fund – Voyager Academy, Inc.
The Voyager Annual Fund helps pay for day-to-day expenses. In general, donations to the Voyager Fund help us fulfill the mission of Voyager Academy by bridging the gap between the per-pupil funds received from the government for each student and the true cost of running our school. In a tax-deductible way, parents, grandparents, Board members, faculty/staff and friends can support the teachers, students and programs of our school. The donations from the Voyager Annual Fund will offset cuts in budget from the state and county. Donations to the Voyager Annual Fund will protect teacher positions and provide funds to maintain our facilities and programs at the highest level.
Both Voyager Foundation, Inc. and Voyager Academy, Inc. are tax exempt entities and will provide you with a donation receipt for your tax records.
If interested in donating, please contact Jennifer Lucas by email or at 919-433-3301.
