Dear Veritas Families & Friends,
Grace and mercy of God to you and your family during this time of trials.
What we are going through together, locally, nationally, and internationally, is almost unbelievable. It is a time of unprecedented upheaval and distress.
But while we are prone to fall into fear and despair, it is also an unprecedented opportunity of gratitude and unity.
The new radical situation that our families re forced into is an unprecedented opportunity for families to grow in the Lord. God has given each family an opportunity to disciple them to love the Lord our God with all our hearts, souls, and strength (Dt 6:4), and to teach them the “glorious deeds of the Lord” (Ps 78:4).
To this end, we are blessed with an amazing community of families who are committed to training up our children in the Lord, and who serve and support the school in so many ways. it is such a blessing to see students grow not only academically, but in their character and wisdom! We are also blessed with an incredible faculty body of 15 members who love the students and are committed to disciple the students with wisdom and skill. We are especially excited about an unprecedented level of commitment, unity, and collective wisdom from our faculty and staff on curriculum development, to take it more mission-aligned, more grade-specific, more integrated with other subjects and Christian worldview, and using more time-tested classical pedagogy.
With such a blessed community and cause, we have an opportunity to be united more than ever before. Currently, student tuition covers only about 82% of our operational cost, which includes all the expenses. Thus, per recommendation from leaders in classical education, we would like to launch an annual Veritas Fund, which is an opportunity for every Veritas family to make a donation to cover for the various areas of growth, including faculty and staff development, program development and facility development. These will be grouped under “General” donation, but we are creating a specific donation under “Bridge Fund” to create funds to help families that might be economically impacted by the Coronavirus situation. Both types will be part of this year’s Veritas Fund.
The Veritas Fund Campaign will end on May 28th, 2020. Our Goal is to have 100% participation in giving from all Veritas families, faculty, administration, and Board. There is no expectation of a specific amount of donation, except that the amount donated will count towards the $750 Family Contribution Fund. Veritas has a total fundraising target of $70,000 this year in order to cover the expenses for the most critical areas of growth. Veritas Fund will be especially helpful this year in the absence of the Benefit Dinner, and in the light of the Coronavirus situation.
As your donation will help to fulfill Christ’s cause at Veritas, please pray to commit to giving according to the riches of Christ. Donations may be made online through our website or you may write a check payable to “Veritas Classical Academy,” indication in the memo line whether it is “General” or “Bridge Fund.” We will track participation and update everyone periodically.
For Christ and His Kingdom,
Dr. David Kim
Founder & Headmaster
