Giving


Your donation provides need-based scholarships and programs for students with language-based learning disabilities and allows them to receive the tools they need to be successful. Your gift allows Horizon Academy to implement small classroom sizes and individualized instruction which allows our students to bring their skills up to and above grade level.

Horizon Academy is grateful for all gifts whether monetary, gifts in kind, or your time.

Monetary donations can be made via cash, check, or credit card.

Ways to Give

Events

Bayou Bash
The Annual Bayou Bash is the largest fundraiser for Horizon Academy, with all funds directed towards programs and scholarships for students with learning disabilities. The evening will include a delicious Cajun-inspired dinner, fabulous auction items, cocktails, and dancing. This is an event you won’t want to miss!

Fall Fest
Help us kick off Learning Disability Awareness Month every October with Horizon Academy’s Annual Fall Fest. Fall Fest is combined with the International Dyslexia Association’s Dyslexia Dash as an event for the community.

Annual Appeal

Individual donations are paramount to meeting the financial needs of our students. Our goal is to provide need-based assistance to those families who qualify. Cost should not be a barrier to students who need a specialized education. 

Monthly Giving

One way to support our students is to sign up to give an automatic donation each month. When you give monthly to Horizon Academy, you become a partner in educating students with learning disabilities. Your monthly gift says, “I believe this program is doing extraordinary things to help these special students become successful in school and in life.”

Simply follow the link below and enter the amount you wish to donate. Your gift will be automatically charged to your credit or debit card each month. You can change the amount or cancel at any time.
