The Southland Foundation operates as a not-for-profit charitable organization incorporated under federal and state laws as a 501 c (3) tax-exempt status. The Foundation is organized to promote and support Southland Academy, Inc. by providing resources to ensure quality educational opportunities for our students in areas including supplementation of teachers salaries, student scholarship, capital improvements, and other worthwhile endeavors of the school. The Southland Foundation Board of Directors oversees and manages the school's endowment fund, as well as, the Venida T. and Thomas F. Layfield Scholarship, the Rose Ann Dupree Christian Heritage Scholarship, the Madeline Anne Wildes Scholarship, the Reagan Weston Weaver Scholarship, and the Ray Scholarship. 

HOW DOES THE SOUTHLAND FOUNDATION RAISE FUNDS?

1. Annual Giving Fund

Southland's Annual Giving Fund is established to provide opportunities for funding  that would otherwise come from tuition revenue. Money raised as a result of annual giving produces revenue to assure that our students continue to be prepared in the areas of academics, technology, arts, and athletics. Income from this fund gives our school a new source to support high priority needs, again reducing the dependcy on tuition income.

2. Endowment Fund

Growth of the Endowment Fund is essentail to ensure Southland's abilty to provide for expanding needs while controlling costs. The Endowment Fund is our school's "savings account" in which the principle is maintained in perpetuity, with only the income generated being used for restricted and unrestricted purposes. Using the Endowment Fund income to supplement needs provides two benefits: Southland can provide more competitive faculty salaries while keeping tuition lower. The fund also positions Southland to make annual facility improvements while avoiding the need and expense of long-term financing.

3. Memorial and Honorary Donations

Memorial and honorary contributions can be made to the Southland Foundation throughout the year. Contributions may also be made to the Venida T. and Thomas F. Layfield Scholarship, the Rose Ann Dupree Christian Heritage Scholarship, the Madeline Anne Wildes Scholarship, the Ray Scholarship, and the Reagan Weston Weaver Scholarship. 

Contribuitons to any of the above can be mailed to:
