MAKE A TAX-DEDUCTIBLE GIFT TO THE NGLA SCHOLARSHIP FUND
ABOUT THE FUND
During the 2016-17 academic year, more than $155,000 in scholarships were awarded by the Next Gen USA Leadership Foundation to qualified student-athletes to enroll and study at the Next Gen Leadership Academy. Of the 35 full-time students who completed the 2016-17 school year, approximately 21 earned Honor Roll distinction from Connections Online Academy, Next Gen Leadership Academy's online curriculum partner.
In year two of the school's operations, there are 52 students enrolled -- all of whom are pursuing the dream of playing collegiately and professionally. The Academy’s budget for the 2017-18 school year is roughly $1 million. This includes a robust financial aid program which has awarded more than $180,000 in scholarships through the NGLA Scholarship Fund to qualified student-athletes who requested assistance to attend the Academy. 83% of NGLA families received financial assistance in 2017-18. To date, NGLA has received $0 in federal funding for scholarships.
WHERE YOUR GIFT MAKES AN IMPACT
100 percent of every dollar we receive will go directly to support the Foundation's NGLA Scholarship Fund, from which the Foundation distributes annual scholarship awards to qualified student-athletes who meet stated eligibility requirements and conditions as required by the Foundation.
Individual scholarship awards are provided to the student-athlete in the form of a grant, which is accounted for by Foundation management to balance and credit student-athlete accounts for enrollment and participation in the Next Gen Leadership Academy.
