We need your financial support to implement academic and educational priorities that will have a direct impact on all our students and their teachers.


Charter schools are tuition free and receive nearly 30% LESS state and local government revenue than traditional public schools, and must provide their own facilities and transportation.  SWA is challenged by our bare bones budget to cover our operating expenses, and we face significant financial challenges that our local public schools take for granted!

At SWA, our students experience smaller class sizes and a rigorous curriculum with dedicated teachers and strong parent involvement.  Because of our dedicated teachers and administration, SWA is one of the most sought after schools in Wake County.

To address the needs of supporting our top priorities, including cultural arts, technology, tutoring, athletics, transportation, extracurricular and enrichment programs, our school has created the SWA Annual Fund for which we will seek donations from our families, foundations, corporations, and members of our local community that share our united vision.

Everyone here at SWA hopes you will donate a financial gift to help us accomplish our educational and academic goals.  No matter how big or small your donation, your participation is what truly matters for improving the academic life of your child!

Please visit our website ( to learn more about our fund development program and access helpful information, such as Matching Gifts Program that explains employee benefits that often doubles your original donation, description of our Corporate Sponsor Program, Gift Giving Levels that identifies amounts and levels of recognition,  Marketable Securities that explains the benefits of selling stocks, and  other items to keep you informed and educated about SWA’s activities.

Thank you for considering a gift to SWA.  Your gifts reflect your belief in our mission and core values.  We are deeply grateful to our current and new supporters who have made Southern Wake Academy a philanthropic priority.

Our IRS nonprofit status as a 501(c)3, allows every donation to be considered a charitable gift and is tax deductible to the maximum extent of the law.  We encourage our donors to consult with their tax advisors to ensure their donations meet IRS requirements.       

On behalf of SWA Board of Directors, I thank you in advance of your support.  Please feel free to contact the Office of Development to learn more about our fund development program, and discuss opportunities to accomplish our goals.
