Our Beacon Community Members

Beacon Academy has a lasting impact on the lives of our students. We are deeply grateful to over 250 volunteers and 900+ donors who generously give both their time and resources to empower the success of our students and organization and push for educational equity. From each student’s first day in the classroom into a first job, they continuously benefit from the guidance and belief of our champions.


At Beacon Academy, we continue to expand our network of champions and build a more powerful future for our community. The impact of these many relationships is unquantifiable – they extend well beyond the walls of a building and permeate all of our lives in both seen and unseen ways. Together we level the educational playing field and work towards achieving educational equity for all.

We need the sustained attention of an active community to travel alongside the inevitable twists and turns of a road of realized dreams. Beacon was built, in part, by the commitment and passion of a community to support the educational journey of young people who dream of new possibilities and futures.
