Your participation matters! Please give today.

Let's keep going!! We need your help!

Wow!! The momentum and energy on campus is INCREDIBLE!!

Are you watching all of our updates on Facebook and Instagram? Our students and teachers are having a wonderful, crazy, exciting and fun day today. Take a look at all of our fun updates throughout the day.

Tune in around 1:30 pm on social media for our concluding TUG OF WAR competition in the gym!

We are so close to hitting our initial goal of $125,000. This is an incredible testimony to the strength and vitality of Royal Palm Academy. THANK YOU for being part of this incredible journey.

Royal Palm Academy has provided nearly $250,000 in "unfunded" financial assistance to families and teachers this year. Today's Day of Giving helps to close this gap.

So LET'S KEEP GOING HIGHER!! Can we stretch our goal today to $150,000 to support financial assistance for our RPA families, students, and teachers?

Please continue to share, promote, email, text, call, and advocate for our Day of Giving. Every additional dollar makes a difference to our ability to provide the benefit of our amazing experience to as many families as possible.

Will you consider making an additional stretch gift? Help us achieve our stretch goal!

YOU ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE! THANK YOU!!
