One of the most rewarding aspects of my work on behalf of the Lexington Junior Academy continues to be explaining to students that the academic, spiritual and social atmosphere they currently enjoy is enhanced by the generosity of our alumni, church members and friends.
At LJA we understand a strategic vision for the future is vital for survival in today's competitive environment. Achieving that vision is possible if people choose to philanthropically partner with the college.
Lexington Junior Academy is blessed to have alumni and friends, who through their generous gifts, enable the college to realize progress which impacts both the present and the future.
I invite you to consider how you might personally impact the progress of LJA. Whether you consider an endowed scholarship, an unrestricted gift to the LJA Fund or a future gift through planned giving, YOUR gift matters.
Thank you for your involvement in the success of Lexington Junior Academy.

You can donate a life insurance policy to LJAor simply name the LJAas the beneficiary. For the gift of a paid-up policy, you will receive an income tax deduction equal to the lesser of the cash value of the policy or the total premiums paid. To qualify for the federal charitable contribution deduction on a gift of an existing policy, you must name us as owner and beneficiary. To make a significant future gift at a relatively low cost, you may do so through a new life insurance policy.
Have a USED CAR you want to donate? You can contribute a non-cash gift of tangible property. Examples include office equipment and furnishings, supplies for medical mission trips, vehicles, teaching supplies and equipment, and musical instruments. The LJAreserves the right to accept or refuse a gift-in-kind. A letter will be provided for those gifts accepted; however, the donor will be responsible for determining the charitable value of the gift.
Sweat Equity - You Are Needed!
Several times throughout the year, Lexington Junior Academy will conduct various fundraising events (talent show, bake sales, etc.) as well as maintenance and cleanup days. We need you! Click here to go to the Calendar page, see upcoming events, and put them in your calendar or appointment book.
Sponsor A Child Scholarship
You can sponsor a child in Africa, and/or you can also sponsor a child or two (or three!) right here in our school. Whether you choose to be anonymous sponsor to the child or not, either way you will receive periodic updates on how the child(ren) you sponsored perform in this school. That way you can be involved and invested in this child's (children's) journey toward academic success and spiritual success. Email us for more info or fill out the form on the left column.
Residential, agricultural, commercial or investment real estate can be designated to benefit LJA as a current gift. If LJA accepts the real estate transfer, LJA will immediately sell the asset and the net sale proceeds will benefit the program(s) you designate.
Transferring securities - stocks, bonds or mutual funds - that have been held longterm to LJA allows you to receive a charitable deduction for the full, fair market value of the securities. Giving securities that have appreciated in value also allows you to avoid capital gains tax.
Many corporations or businesses match their employees' charitable gifts with a contribution of equal or greater value. A matching gift may be initiated by completing your company's matching gift form and sending it with your gift to LJA. Check with your human resources or personnel office to determine if your employer has a matching gift program and if your gift qualifies for a corporate match.
