The mission of Metro Christian Academy’s Foundation is to provide resources to further the vision of Metro Christian Academy through fundraising, community relations, and sound advisement.
The Metro Christian Academy Foundation, founded in 2005, is a nonprofit, volunteer-based organization bringing parents, alumni, small businesses, and corporations together to support Metro Christian Academy and its students. The Foundation works to build supportive relationships between our school and the business community. Gifts to the foundation endowments create a sustained benefit to the programs and passions of our Metro patrons. These gifts come in many forms — whether a one-time donation, an ongoing annual pledge, gifts of stock, or even a planned legacy gift through a will or trust. The foundation endowments are critical for Metro, not only to protect and preserve Metro’s commitment to the pursuit of excellence through Christ, but likewise for financial stability and independence. For Metro students and their parents, the foundation endowments support affordability by enhancing academic programming and offsetting the annual operating cost — without raising tuition or sacrificing the quality of the Metro Christian Academy experience.
Since 2005, the Foundation’s endowment fund has provided over $1,000,000 in support to Metro Christian Academy. The endowment fund makes an annual contribution to the school for tuition assistance, staff professional development, support of the Diagnostic Instruction Center, general operating expenses, as well as building and ground maintenance projects.
The Metro Christian Academy Foundation Board is made up of volunteer members who are current and past parents, alumni, and other business leaders in the community. Current Board Members are:
Ken Etheredge, President
Brian Grimes, Vice President
Miriam Shaw, Secretary
Tommy Campbell, Jay Condry, Matt Crook, Kim Dilley, Chris Hodges, Angie McCann (PTF Representative), Holly Meek, Allison Odom, Jeff Pinter, Jennifer Smith, Julie Vicena (TCEC Representative), Scott Williams (TCEC Representative)
