Ways to Give

Support Fayette Academy
Your generous contribution will help to enrich academics, enhance the arts and athletics, and make campus improvements.

The Fayette Academy Annual Fund

The Fayette Academy Annual Fund bridges the gap between tuition and the actual cost of the excellence in education that is the very foundation of Fayette Academy. These vital, unrestricted funds are used to enrich academics, enhance the arts and athletics, and support faculty as well as to cover the cost of our day-to-day operations and improvements to our campus.

Giving Options

The FA Annual Fund

The FA Annual Fund is the preferred method of support as it covers the greatest need.

Athletics Fund

The Athletic Fund will be distributed based upon the programs’ greatest needs.

Fine Arts Fund

The Fine Arts Fund will distribute funds among Performing Arts, Band, and the fine arts courses.

Tuition Assistance

Fayette Academy’s tuition assistance program is a needs-based program that relies on both community support and budget inclusion.

Mighty Oak Leaf Fund

Mighty Oak Leaf sponsors will receive an engraved golden leaf with wording of their choosing mounted in the lobby of the Viking Center. Funds support facility improvements.

Other Funds

These restricted funds can be designated for academics, specific athletics, the library, and Sarah Belle Day and Granville Watson scholarships.

Planned Giving

Planned Giving can involve making charitable gifts through your estate plans and may result in favorable financial benefits for you or your estate. Fayette Academy welcomes gifts made through different planned giving arrangements.

Gift of Property

Your company may make gifts of land and/or buildings to be used by FA or be sold with proceeds going to FA. The value is to be determined by a certified appraisal and is eligible for gift-tax credit.

Gift of Property

You may commit gifts of appreciated property in the form of shares of stock or mutual funds to FA. These types of gifts are exempt from capital gains tax. You will receive the full value of the gift as a tax credit – this may be spread over multiple years.


You may choose to make the mission of Fayette Academy a part of your legacy by placing a bequest in your Last Will and Testament. You may designate your bequest for specific funds or endowments.
