Gideon’s 300 Campaign
We believe there are at least 300 individuals who care deeply about Adventist education and Mount Ellis Academy that would be willing to participate in this ongoing ambassador program. By donating a minimum of $1,000 each, with an opportunity for renewal each year, we can reach our initial goal of $300,000 by June 30, 2020 and have an army of faithful people to help support and grow Mount Ellis Academy.
Would you be willing to join us? Can we count on you to join Mount Ellis Academy’s Gideon army? With Mount Ellis Academy’s administration, faculty, and governing board, we are ready to march forward in faith.
Faculty Housing Project
Having been established in 1902, Mount Ellis Academy has a rich history. While we are no longer using any of the original structures, most of our buildings are starting to show their age, including our faculty homes. Additionally, we have found that we do not have adequate housing for our staff and we recognize the need for additional on-campus housing. We have begun a new initiative to begin building new houses on campus to address our “housing crisis”. It is our goal to be able to replace or renovate our existing campus housing and provide funding for on-going maintenance costs for each home.
The Montana Conference, along with area churches and the Adventist Education Foundation have already made a statement of support for this new initiative by funding the initial 50% of the first home. Would you be willing to join in helping us to raise $75,000 to get the first home built? You can be a part of the vision. You can be a part of the future of MEA.
Every dollar donated to the Mount Ellis Academy Scholarship Fund helps an average of 30 students cover tuition costs needed to attend every year.
Mount Ellis Endowment Fund
This fund provides yearly income to MEA to help with covering education costs.
Bear Canyon Ski Area Endowment Fund
This Fund will help to address financial needs at the ski hill before they become a problem. A fully-funded $300,000 endowment will pay the current annual lease; more will facilitate ski hill maintenance and facility upkeep. Just 300 people willing to pledge $1,000 over the next three years will fund the endowment.
Farnsworth Scholarship Endowment Fund
Farnsworth Scholarship Endowment Fund was set-up to provide additional financial support to students from Montana. This endowment awards $6,000 a year in scholarships to qualifying students.
