Support the Mission

We invite you to become part of "A Mission With a Mission," and to invest in the lives of the Navajo children and families of Rock Point, AZ. Upon written request to the Executive Director a copy of our annual report will be made available to all donors. Our yearly tax returns can be found at the National Center for Charitable Statistics. All financial accounting is done by an independent certified public accountant.

Why Give to the Mission?

  • The Mission School is an alternative school to Bureau of Indian Affairs and community schools throughout the Navajo Nation.
  • Parents choose to place their children in a school that reflects Christian values while respecting Navajo culture and tradition.
  • Partnership is expressed by Navajo and non-Navajo representation on a Mission Board of Directors.
  • Social needs are addressed by counseling, educational opportunities, and on-the-job training.

The Sponsorship Program

Scholarship sponsors play a large role in giving Navajo children the opportunity to attend religious education at the

House of Prayer, participate in sports and other after school activities, as well as providing transportation to the

Charter School and Mission. The House of Prayer has designed a program to provide each child with a personal

sponsor, who writes to the child and sends special gifts when appropriate. The children also write to the sponsor, and often are able to meet their sponsors at Chapel time as they visit the Mission. If you are interested in sponsoring a

child, perhaps one of the following options is right for you:

1. Individual Child Sponsorship ($1000-$10,000 scholarship): Supplements part of the expenses for one student over the academic year (August-May) for their transportation to the Mission School, for religious education at House of Prayer, holiday activities, and extra-curricular and after school activities.

2. Class Sponsorship ($3,000 scholarship): Supplements the expenses of a year in school (August-May) for an entire grade-level—transportation, religious education, sports and other after school extra-curricular activities.

Persons who become sponsors will receive a packet including: a picture of the student, a personalized letter from

the student, grade listing, date of birth, clothing size, occasional letters and gifts. We need your support to offer

these much needed services for our children!
