The Academy of Greatness, a school for ethical young leaders, has now been certified by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) public charity. Effective August 20, 2012, all contributions to the building of this vision are fully tax-deductible.
The creation of the Academy of Greatness will be an adventure of massive proportions, requiring a large financial commitment from numerous sources.
Those who understand the principles of abundance know that there is more than enough and to spare in the world. All one has to do is look at recent presidential campaigns, where candidates from both parties were able to raise over a billion dollars each, to realize that there is money out there in massive amounts, waiting to be put to use in the right cause.
It is our intention to begin our first school year with an endowment of 30 million dollars or more. This will allow for the acquisition and retrofitting (or initial construction) of a campus, and allow for a springboard for future expansion as well as healthy fiscal operations.
Phase 1 is to raise $200,000 which will be used to defray the initial costs for the following items:
- Incorporation as a non-profit, 501(c)(3) entity – Completed
- IRS non-profit status certification – Effective 8/20/2012
- Business plan refinement
- Legal and accounting support
- Further website development
- Design and printing of initial promotional and fundraising materials
- Curriculum development
- Campus search
All contributions are tax-deductible. This school and the philosophy behind it has never been more needed.
It goes without saying that if you can help us reach this goal, or if you know others who can, please contact us.
And thank you.
