The Academy for Excellence in Athletics & Academics is an all-volunteer, nonprofit corporation that provides financial assistance, school supplies, academic support and youth sports programs for inner-city children from low- and moderate-income families, with varied ethnic, racial, religious, and cultural backgrounds.

We need your help. The Academy is currently engaged in a fundraising campaign on behalf 5-12 year-olds in our youth basketball program. Your donation will be used to help children who qualify for financial assistance.

We are asking our friends, families and members of our community to help us support our underserved children by donating $10, $15, $25, $50, $100, or whatever amount you can afford to give. 

Your donation will be used for Academy Warriors basketball program team uniforms, team equipment, awards, facilities rental, team registration fees, league registration fees, and scholarships and discounts for needy participants.

Your donation is tax deductible. The Academy is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, tax-exempt organization (EIN: 81-2941518), and a California nonprofit, tax-exempt corporation (Corp. ID: 3913592).
