Passion Fund

The Passion Fund is an annual award given to a select number of Kansas City area home school graduates. It is meant to motivate, not just the award recipients, but also the entire home school community toward pursuing a Godly purpose. We home school because we want to make a difference in our kids and we want our kids to make a difference in the world. The Passion Fund is there to help encourage families toward that goal.

Fund amount is $1,000/yr for up to 4 years.
