Stoa works hard to ensure that financial means are not a barrier to participation in these highly beneficial exercises in the development of future leaders. As such, we are primarily volunteer-driven and use donor support to fund the infrastructure of the Stoa organization. Stoa is a 501(c)3 nonprofit. You will receive a donation receipt for your tax-deductible contribution to Stoa.
Giving Tuesday, observed on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, is a global generosity movement that seeks to transform communities. Stoa impacts communities locally and nationally as it equips thousands of students to speak boldly and change the world for Christ. You can read about Stoa’s recent achievements in our recently published 2021 Annual Report. Will you prayerfully consider donating to Stoa on Giving Tuesday, November 30, to help Stoa grow and continue to achieve its mission? We believe we can accomplish this mission more effectively with new software tools. You can help by donating directly toward our “Renovate to Innovate” software campaign.
