Ways to Give

LLA Giving

A COMMUNITY OF GIVING
It is the mission of Loma Linda Academy to nurture and prepare our students for a life of learning and service.  Our focus and emphasis revolves around educating young people and allowing them to develop academically, spiritually, physically and socially. 

The Loma Linda Academy community is comprised of students, parents, alumni, and staff…among others.  This loyal community is committed to the academy’s success and support for the students, teachers, and staff who call LLA home.  It is this attitude that creates the familial atmosphere that can be found within the LLA community.
The support exhibited by our community comes in various ‘shapes and sizes’, ranging from financial gifts, volunteering time, and everything in between.  We are so very grateful to our community for their commitment and generous support.  In order to deliver the highest quality education, assist hundreds of students with financial constraints, and provide the best resources to our teachers and students, we rely on you. 

 
Your gifts allow us the opportunity to fund these needs.  Join us in this endeavor.  Below is a list of all of the areas that you can support, and a brief description of each.
