Auditorium renovation & updates
Legacy’s auditorium building is a hub for Legacy community. Weekly chapels for our elementary and secondary students instill a pattern of worship as well as a time to explore scripture, biblical leadership principles, and godly character development. It is also used throughout the school year for concerts, drama productions, and other community events. Giving partners at the 2022 Spring Fundraising Gala fully funded replacement of the auditorium window curtains and some renovations of the cafeteria space in the lower level. Other partners supported the replacement of the Auditorium windows. Additional significant needs in the Auditorium overall renovation include replacing the auditorium seating, updating HVAC for the entire building, updating auditorium lighting, replacing the exterior entrance doors, technology updates, and painting and interior aesthetic improvements. Every bit counts, and gifts of all sizes are important! We believe that if we all work together, we can transform our beloved, but aging, auditorium into a space where students and families can continue to make memories for decades to come.
[Note: A number of years ago a campaign for auditorium renovations raised a significant sum of money from donors interested in supporting auditorium improvements, including the replacement of the antiquated and increasingly dysfunctional seating in the auditorium. A sum equal to the amount given toward replacing the seating is in a board-restricted account for that purpose once sufficient funds are raised to continue this project.]
Legacy General Fund
Gifts to the Legacy General Fund benefit every student at Legacy Christian Academy. This fund helps Legacy provide an excellent education from a biblical worldview that enables students to grow in their walk with Christ and prepares them to influence their world. Gifts to the Legacy General Fund are used in the area of greatest need as determined by LCA leadership and may contribute to special projects, facility improvements, and scholarships for students who would not otherwise be able to attend Legacy.
Legacy Education Affordability Fund
The Legacy Education Affordability Fund (LEAF) is a 501c3 that is a registered Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO) in the state of Ohio dedicated specifically to funding scholarships for students at Legacy Christian Academy, prioritizing scholarships for students with greatest financial need. Ohio law allows each Ohio taxpayer to claim a gift to LEAF as a dollar-for-dollar state tax credit up to $750. Couples filing a joint Ohio tax return may claim a tax credit up to $1500 for a gift to LEAF if they give in separate donations in each partner’s name. [Disclaimer: Employees and representatives of Legacy Christian Academy and LEAF are not attorneys or tax professionals. We encourage you to investigate this tax credit further and to seek professional advice.]
Endowed memorial funds honor individuals who have impacted Legacy Christian Academy families through their love, service and ministry.

grandparents club $10/month
Grandparents of Legacy Christian Academy students – past, present, and honorary – are invited to join Grandparents Club! The influence of a grandparent in a child’s life is significant, and Legacy desires to honor our students’ grandparents and deepen our relationship with them. For a gift of at least $10/month, Grandparents Club members will receive perks and updates in the mail throughout the year.
spring fundraising gala sponsorship
Corporate sponsors and individuals underwrite the cost of Legacy Christian Academy’s annual Spring Fundraising Gala each year, enabling every dollar given at the Gala to go toward specific projects. Please consider partnering with us in this way as we seek to motivate our local Christian community to rally around the cause of Equipping Leaders for Christ and fund special projects toward that end. The cost of the Gala is intentionally kept moderate so that gifts to this fund in excess of the actual cost of the Spring Fundraising Gala may be included in giving to Gala projects. Unless anonymity is requested, corporate and individual sponsors will be publicly thanked at the Gala for their support.
