Ways to Invest


Whatever resources, skills or abilities you can contribute, there’s a place for you to invest at New Hope. NHA continues to blossom as a community where families and children from vastly different walks of life are blessed, challenged and spiritually nourished through discovering their need for each other. Whether a student can pay full tuition or requires financial assistance, each child who walks through our doors is a person of immeasurable worth made in God’s image. That’s why we commit to raise more than $1 million each year in scholarship funds.

We maintain an ongoing need for individuals and groups to donate toward scholarships. Would you consider contributing to a student’s monthly or yearly tuition fees? Or could you help in maintaining or improving our facility and grounds? Are you able to donate computers or other technology? Could you contribute classroom or office furnishings or vehicles for student transportation? We’d love to speak with you about these opportunities and hear your ideas as well.

Financial gifts make a direct and instant impact on our students, so we’ve made it easy for you to give. Each gift is fully deductible for federal income tax purposes. Please contact Development Assistant Jen Beck at jbeck@nhafranklin.org or 615-595-0324, ext. 223 to discuss giving opportunities or other ways you’d like to serve or assist our students.

Corporate Giving
Corporations and small-to-medium businesses can give to New Hope easily in the form of in-kind giving, event sponsorship, stocks and other appreciated securities, matching gifts, or class sponsorships.


Fundraising Events
Fundraising is crucial in accomplishing the vision of New Hope Academy.  There are opportunities where your involvement can make a difference in helping New Hope invest in our students.


Foundational Giving
One way to give to New Hope is through endowments, grants, estates and trusts. This is a great way to build a legacy for the future of education and ensure that generations to come will continue to benefit from New Hope’s mission.  For more information on Planned Giving, click here.


Expanding Hope
Part of New Hope Academy’s vision is to offer classes to our students through middle school, adding seventh and eighth grades to our current Pre-K through sixth-grade program. While there is nothing definite just yet, we are prayerfully considering what it would take to launch that vision. Stay tuned!
