ELA Annual Fund

Kick Off


Our East Lake Academy 2015-2016 Annual Fund has officially kicked off!  The Annual Fund provides a way for ELA families to help bridge the gap between tuition costs and the actual cost associated with educating each child. Our goal for the 2015-16 Annual Fund is $145,000 with 100% participation from our ELA families.  Gifts to the Annual Fund can be made from now until February 1, 2016.   We thank you for your continued support of East Lake Academy, as we work together to form the next generation of authentic Christian leaders.
