Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14 NIV
Dear Friend of LLA,
We consider it a privilege to nurture and watch our students grow, mature, and give back to their communities with their talents and their gifts. We are committed to guiding our students to learn Eternal Principles and choose daily to make Intelligent Choices.
Will you consider giving to one of our great needs, and help us continue to minister to our students? Thank you for your faithful support! Your gift to LLA makes a difference for generations of students to come.
Blessings to you and your family,
Dr. Doug Herrmann
WHAT IS THE LLA IMPACT FUND?
The LLA Impact Fund raises funds on an annual basis, which allows LLA to grow and provide better resources for our students. The school’s current 2018-2019 strategic projects include the following goals:
STEM Maker Cart for TK-6th grade and Maker Space Equipment for the 7th & 8th grade: What is STEM? Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. STEM learning gives students the opportunity to develop their creative, problem-solving skills through hands-on learning. This equipment would provide toys, tools, and materials to build, create and learn!
Band Lockers for 5th-12th grades: Our current lockers are dated and many are unusable – not even sized appropriately for all instruments! Many of our instruments are stored on the floor until we can meet this need. Obtaining new, instrument-specific lockers would enable to us to have an orderly, safe and aesthetically pleasing way to store our instruments.
The Children's Center needs to replace the aging water play feature in the playground. The new water feature is designed to engage children as a table of exploration, the basins and three satellite play counters will provide multiple access points for play.
FACULTY SUPPORT— $12,000
Faculty support enables us to fund two vital areas for our teachers: classroom funds and professional development.* Classroom funds allow teachers to purchase additional resources for their classrooms and students such as interactive materials, books, craft supplies, and more! Faculty support also provides professional development opportunities for our faculty to that they keep abreast of the latest curricula and methodologies relevant to their areas of expertise.
*Currently, the Southeastern California Conference is providing dollar-for-dollar matching for our faculty professional development endowed fund. Take advantage of this opportunity and double the impact of your gift today!
Checks can be made payable to Loma Linda Academy

CAN I DONATE FOR A SPECIFIC STUDENT’S TUITION, MUSIC TOUR, OR OTHER FEES?
You can donate to the Student Aid fund which is awarded to families who apply for financial assistance. You can also donate to specific programs such as Wind Symphony or Elementary Art. However, if paying for a specific student’s tuition of fees, we cannot issue a tax-deductible receipt for you. That payment needs to be handled through the Business Office (909-796-0161 ext. 3351) because it is considered a payment.
As each Enrichment category is funded, excess funds will be applied to the other categories.
