What Alumni Say About Giving Back

“I want to give back to the school that gave to me.”

“Because I can see in the updates in the school since I have graduated that my donation is contributing to wonderful progress.”

“To support the same arts programs that changed my life forever, and in the hope that the fund will help continue the development of HRA's arts programs.”

“I've only had one year to give but I do believe it helps the school that made me who I am today.”

“I do every year.”

“Give back to my school that helped me so much.”

“I want to give back to the school that helped me get here.”

Alumni Giving Q&A

List of 5 items.

  • Q. How will my gift make a difference?

    Alumni giving provides unrestricted resources to help cover the cost of running Hampton Roads Academy. Because tuition and fees do not cover the actual cost of each student's education, HRA looks to alumni along with parents, grandparents, trustees, faculty and friends to help bridge that gap. You as Alumni have lived the HRA experience. You know firsthand the difference a HRA education makes. The Annual Fund provides immediate unrestricted funds to support the school’s highest priorities, including curriculum development, financial aid, improved technology, athletic equipment, classroom enhancements, student activities, faculty development, and all the extra support and mentoring that continues to be a part of the HRA tradition.
  • Q. Why am I being asked to give during my reunion year?

    Hampton Roads Academy depends on the generosity, enthusiasm, class camaraderie and spirit of its alumni to anchor the HRA Annual Fund.  Reunion gifts set the pace for the Annual Fund, and can help to inspire other classes through their gift to the Spirit Stick Challenge. Your class gift, along with those of other reunion classes, will have a profound impact on the school's ability to continue to offer a premier college-preparatory education. Reunion, Spirit Stick contributions will also be included in the cumulative Blue Ribbon Challenge for the 2015-16 Annual Fund. 
  • Q. How much should I give?

    Your participation matters most.  Everyone is encouraged to participate in the Spirit Stick Challenge and/or Blue Ribbon Challenge.  Levels of support will vary from class to class, and from person to person.  Some of those gifts will qualify the donors for membership in one of HRAs leadership giving societies. 
    Please remember, every gift - no matter the size - is meaningful to Hampton Roads Academy.  If you are not able to make a gift at one of the leadership society levels, or if you have not been a regular supporter of the HRA Annual Fund, we hope you will still consider participating and supporting your Alumni Class with the Sprit Stick Challenge and/or Blue Ribbon Challenge.
    There is Power in Participation!
  • Q. When should I make my gift?

    The Hampton Roads Academy Annual Fund year begins July 1 and ends June 30. All gifts must be received between those dates in order to be counted in the total for your Alumni Class Gift Challenge.
