Family Giving Program

Inspire School of Arts & Sciences is a tuition-free, donation-dependent public charter school and we can not raise the money we need with small fundraisers. No student is offered or denied enrollment based upon financial capacity. However, each school year we must raise private funds to underwrite the arts and sciences programs, and we rely on parents and the community-at-large to help us reach this goal.

The Family Giving Program was created to provide parents with an opportunity to contribute an annual or monthly donation to their child’s education. All contributions are voluntary, and directly support the curriculum, classes, program enhancements, and operating costs. All donations to the school are tax deductible.

Alumni Association

The Inspire alumni are our school’s greatest achievement! Inspire School of Arts & Sciences is a life-changing school for so many young adults. If you feel grateful to have had this high school experience, if you want your alma mater to succeed years into the future, and if you want to create a lasting legacy for all the students who follow, please consider joining the Inspire Alumni Legacy by donating any amount monthly to the Inspire Foundation. Your donation enables us to provide an incredible education to all students no matter what their financial capacity, provide exceptional arts and sciences programming, and work towards building a new school site for the future students of Inspire. 

In return, we are officially creating the Inspire Alumni Association to keep all our amazing past students connected to Inspire. We will be starting an Inspire Alumni E-Newsletter every other month highlighting current events and featuring what our alumni are up to now. We hope to have a large all class event to celebrate you and Inspire achieving 10 years of exceptional education once we can do it safely. This year we will graduate our 10th class and we think that makes for a perfect time to begin our very own Inspire Alumni Association. Please join us!
