Celebrating our 25th Anniversary Campaign Success












25TH ANNIVERSARY C A P I T A L C A M PA I G N Thank you for your generosity during Agape’s 25th anniversary year in 2022. We are delighted to report that we exceeded our $2.5 million capital campaign goal, with $2,752,590 pledged. We are pleased to provide an update on our campaign components, as well as some photos of our progress.

A G A P E B A C K YA R D Construction of The Agape Backyard, a place where our children can play, learn and grow, was completed by BrightView in early September 2022. Our students, families and staff began utilizing this outdoor space immediately for classroom engagement, group study, and social-emotional learning. Adding The Backyard allows us to meet the National Afterschool Association’s HEPA standards for physical activity and provides new space for outdoor learning. These standards will help Agape meet our overall wellness goals for our students.


A G A P E T R A N S P O R T AT I O N Our two new 72-passenger buses were delivered in June 2023, just in time for the start of Summer Camp. These buses were wrapped with a colorful design to add visibility for Agape in the community. This fall, we are taking our buses into the community for a “Stuff the Bus” campaign to collect new coats, toys and books to prepare for the Holiday Gift Store.

AGAPE TECHNOLOGY LAB Enhancing our ability to engage student learning and achievement, our STEAM and Tech Labs have been updated, thanks to the success of our capital campaign and your generosity. Our afterschool program will integrate STEAM through all areas of our program to provide students with more opportunities to enhance their critical thinking skills and explore potential career paths.

To date we have added the following equipment: 20 Chromebooks and 1 mobile charging cart 20 iMacs and10 Apple TVs Tables, Stools, and storage cabinets for STEAM and Tech Lab

AGAPE STEAM LAB We have purchased new furniture to retrofit the space to encourage collaboration on group projects and support autonomy when completing individual homework assignments. We have also added new graphics to the walls to inspire our students as we create a welcoming and inspiring look and feel for the space.
