Shenandoah Valley Academy Annual Giving Report 2016-2017

Bring My children—My sons and daughters… who are called by My name; the ones I made, shaped and created for My profound glory. ...I will pour my spirit on your children and grandchildren— and let My blessing flow to your descendants. And they will sprout among the grasses, grow vibrant and tall like willow trees lining a riverbank. Isaiah 43:6-7, 44:3-4

Notes from the Principal This year Shenandoah Valley Academy (SVA) celebrates 110 years of God’s shining blessings! The founding charitable gift to SVA was made by Charles Zirkle, a dying young man whose thoughts were not for himself, but for the salvation of young people and establishing a school to educate them for God’s service—the enduring mission of SVA. Zirkle’s selfless gift demonstrates the power of a heart transformed by the love and grace of Jesus, inspired to action for the sake of young people to know and serve Him as Friend and Savior. It’s a gift that has grown far beyond what anyone could have asked or imagined, establishing a school community legendary for its love and loyalty, making an inestimable difference in the education and faith of 5,300 graduates, and in the lives of all they impact for good and God’s Kingdom. Through your selfless gifts, we witness God work mightily through the echoing call of SVA’s founding gift to inspire generations “to accomplish the good works God arranged long ago.” (Eph. 2:10)

Principal Don Short presents Feltman Family Leadership Endowment scholarships to Valery Vergara ’18 and Hannah Sloan ’18 at year-end chapel.

As you will read in this report, donations for operations, tuition assistance and other projects resulted in an operating increase of $285,000 for FY 2017. Updated copy equipment, and quality used minivan and lawnmower replacements have been purchased. Twomley Hall received a new 35-year roof with improved insulation and drainage—good riddance buckets and rags! For a second year, your financial gifts helped provide nearly $1 million in scholarships and tuition assistance to qualified students. Thank you, Lord, for the difference these incredible gifts are making for Your children at SVA! For 2017-18, we are grateful for a generous donation providing the opportunity to develop a comprehensive campus facilities master plan, and another to purchase replacements for aging major cafeteria appliances. Enrollment is holding steady (186) after graduating a large senior class (49) in May. The FY 2018 budget is based on 182 students with a small operating increase. In October, 140 talented potential students and their parents attended a successful Academy Days. Prospective families are enthusiastic about a “super positive atmosphere” at SVA where relationships are established in Christian love, where spiritual growth of students is evident, and quality academics are offered in a setting counter to secular culture. With a small but mighty senior class (38) graduating in May, we are working and planning for an increase in enrollment for the 2018-19 school year. As you read excerpts of thank you notes written by students directly impacted by your generosity, please know your financial investment is making a difference in the lives of young people who deeply value the opportunity to study, work and play at an Adventist Christian boarding school. Thank you for allowing God to work through you to extend mercy and grace to our school and students through your financial gifts. You are making it possible for a new generation of students to learn and thrive at a vibrant, strong SVA today! In three years amazing progress has taken place to reestablish Shenandoah Valley Academy as a sustainable Adventist boarding academy. It is only with your prayers and generosity, the leadership and sacrifice of so many faithful individuals, that the course of this legendary school has been stayed and will continue as a great witness for Jesus and His Kingdom. Please continue to hold Shenandoah and our precious students up in prayer as we seek to reflect the love of Jesus, focused on the enduring mission of SVA—educating the next generation of His Disciples. Sincerely,

Donald R. Short • Principal

From the Director of Development & Alumni Relations Because of you and your regular generous financial gifts, Shenandoah Valley Academy finished the fiscal year July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2017 with an operating increase of $285,000. This is an incredible result which represents an increase over last year in the number and amount of unrestricted and worthy student gifts received from SVA Alumni and Friends.*

Director of Development and Alumni Relations, Janel Haas Ware ‘86 and husband Stuart, ‘79, with niece Madeleine ‘17 on graduation day

This third consecutive year of operating gains is a statistic made even more remarkable considering the loss to SVA of approximately $200,000 last year and this year in foundation tuition assistance grants, primarily for students with the greatest financial need. SVA Alumni and Friends, you are making up the difference! With deepest gratitude, THANK YOU for standing by our school and students. Thank you for helping SVA keep the bold promise that “no qualified student will be turned away from Shenandoah because of finances.” Shenandoah Valley Academy depends on philanthropy, charitable financial gifts from “outside sources” like Alumni and Friends, foundations, churches and businesses for approximately 38% of its operating budget to educate our students. Parents pay tuition and fees; the Potomac Conference provides operating subsidy; however, it is the stalwart commitment of SVA Alumni and Friends coming together to financially support SVA and a new generation of “Our SVA Kids” that has become the great redemption story of our school. YOU have become the primary owner-investors in Shenandoah Valley Academy. Your committed month-to-month, year-to-year investment is the key factor making the difference in solidifying financial, program and enrollment sustainability here at Shenandoah. Because of your loyalty and generosity, in its 110th year of existence Shenandoah Valley Academy is thriving! A new generation of “Our SVA Kids”—bright, eager students are shining—because of YOU! Thank you!! In His Service for His Children & SVA –
