The Million Dollar Challenge
The affordability gap that exists today between public and private education brings with it a compromise in accessibility to relevant, learner-centered, meaningful education and the accessibility gap is widening. To keep up with the changing times, to ensure our children are prepared for the future, our world needs a new model of education. Phoenix Rising is shifting the educational paradigm, cultivating and instilling a lifelong love of learning in our students, and propelling them to become anything they want to become in a world that is rapidly changing.
We aren’t just breaking the mold, we are smashing it to pieces. And that means change not just from within, with our academics and educational model, but from without–in the perceptions and involvement of the community around us. “Financial ability” should not be a qualifier to access superior education, and at Phoenix Rising we are working hard to make sure it is not. Our goal is to become entirely community-supported and–one day–”tuitionless” for all families! We are empowering our community to help us achieve this goal through a genuine partnership.
2500 x $25 x 12 = $750,000
This formula illustrates a very achievable target of 2500 supporters of our vision (including parents) donating an average contribution of $25 monthly. This removes financial barriers for children to attend and shifts the “qualifier” for access to quality education to shared social values and vision for the future. Our school becomes accessible to any student. In this scenario we do not charge any tuition. All contributions are tax-deductible donations from our supporters including parents and our team.
