Impact your World 2 01 1 -201 2 An n u al G ivin g


FROM ANNUAL GIVING CHAIRS Dear Brentwood Academy Family, We are thrilled to begin another Annual Giving Campaign by thanking God and acknowledging everyone who gave sacrificially last year. Last year’s response was unprecedented with 100% participation by parents, trustees and faculty, and a huge increase in participation by alumni, parents of alumni and others in the extended BA family. The extra funds provided by our generous Challenge Gift donors strengthened the impact of our individual gifts and ensured the fact that “every gift counts.” Once again, we will utilize the Challenge Gift donations to encourage every giver to make a pledge. We look forward to seeing how God provides again this year. left to right: Glenn, Katherine, Bob and Jan

“From day one, our students learn what community looks like. The way the school is structured with things like the middle school dens, the Big Brother Big Sister program and advisory groups - there are so many ways community is built into Brentwood Academy. The students probably don’t even realize how community-oriented they are until they go away from BA and see what it has meant to them. Our children were also greatly impacted by the Bible classes they took at BA. Our daughter is now majoring in sociology with an emphasis on poverty studies because of how she was impacted by her Religion and Culture class.”


Don Logan Class of 1981, Parent of Emily ’08 and Alex ’10, Former Trustee, Senior Pastor, St. Paul Community Church

“When I was in the 8th grade one of my teachers sat me down at a low point in my life when I thought I would transfer out of BA. His understanding of a troubled child and taking a personal interest in me changed my life’s direction. I stayed at BA, and the following year, gave my life to Christ at a fall retreat. I was shown what true mentoring looks like and now am trying to pour into others. BA also instilled the importance of life-long learning in me. I am still obtaining further education in seminary.”


Caroline Greene Show Hope Volunteer, Class of 2013

“Because of my relationship with one of my teachers, I became interested in orphan care and have been to China twice to work in orphanages. Now, I am so excited to share my passion with my friends at school. Last year, I helped start the Movement Club through Show Hope. The Movement was started in Williamson County and is spreading throughout the U.S. to help bring students from unaware, to aware, to action in the orphan crisis. I can’t wait to help make it bigger and better so more students will be involved. The reason I ended up in China was because of the relationships I built at BA. I am so thankful. Lives are being changed!”


Brad Perry Class of 1992, Parent of Knox ‘18, Faculty and Coach

“I knew before I ever went to college that I wanted to come back to BA to teach because of the impact that mentors and teachers had on me when I was here. I think you see the core of our mission show up in these mentoring relationships with students, with co-workers and throughout our BA family. That has held true from my time as a student and up until now.”


MEET THE CHALLENGE MAKE AN IMPACT Every gift makes an impact. This year, we will repeat the Challenge Gift Program that was introduced last year that resulted in more than $100,000 in additional gifts. The key is your participation. Every gift pledged, regardless of the amount, results in even more money contributed by one of our Challenge Gift donors. We invite you to continue the tradition with a gift to the Annual Fund, making an impact on your world. Scan the QR code with your phone for information about the Challenge Gift Program or visit

“A nest is made up of so many different parts, but each part is integral. It is symbolic of the significance of each part that every person plays in our community. Every gift given plays a significant part. Annual Giving is about everyone coming together with one mind, one purpose and one goal.” - David Arms
