Ways to Give

LLA Giving

A Giving Community

Loma Linda Academy (LLA) strives to fill every inch of our campus with an intentionality for learning –learning for this lifetime as well as for eternity. As a community, we are dedicated to guiding our students to learn eternal principles and to make intelligent choices on a daily basis. To that end, LLA provides opportunities for healthy, balanced development of our students so that when they graduate, they are well prepared for life and learning beyond LLA.
Academically, we encourage our students to work hard to reach excellence and success. Frequently, alumni return to tell us that they felt well prepared for college and how grateful they are to have had the expert teachers and solid foundation they were given here at Loma Linda Academy. Our teachers and staff strive to make a significant impact on our students because they feel they are called by God to serve all of our students by pointing them to Jesus and guiding them to be ready for life’s challenges.
Who is in our Giving Community? LLA is supported by a community of students, parents, alumni, and staff who love God and reflect His character by serving with passion and excellence. LLA upholds a family atmosphere with an active volunteer parent organization. Whether parents support LLA through volunteering of time and/or giving financial gifts, they are providing an essential ministry to the young people in our community, from 3 months old through 12th grade!
LLA has seen God’s hand blessing this campus and its service to students for over 100 years. However, we are increasingly limited in the resources we can provide for our students by financial constraints. It is a careful balance to try to maintain affordable tuition, while still providing competitive education. To continue that purpose to the best of our abilities, there are several needs on campus that, as a community, we believe we can make possible together!

Will my donation to LLA be tax-deductible?
Yes! Loma Linda Academy is part of the Southeastern California Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, which is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation as defined by the IRS, which means that all gifts to LLA are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. All school-wide fundraising at LLA supports the mission of the school through the school’s annual strategic initiatives.

[1]The LLA Impact Fund is the first priority in fundraising each fiscal year. By donating to a specific project within the Impact Fund, your funds will be directed for that purpose. However, LLA retains the right to re-direct funds to a specific project within the Impact Fund if a project is over or underfunded because it is an unrestricted fund.
