All of our activities are free since many of our children generally live below the poverty line. To serve these children with quality experiences, we are dependent on financial donations from foundations, corporations, organizations, and individuals. We are also fortunate to receive contributions of soccer equipment from soccer clubs and individuals.
Our mission is clear. The need is compelling. The children are irresistible.
We would not be in the strong position we are today without a group of wonderful donors and our soccer partners. A complete list of our donors since our founding in 2009 can be found by clicking here. Listed below are some of our largest donors.
We are especially grateful to Seacoast United Soccer Club and Global Premier Soccer - New Hampshire for providing top-notch coaches at no cost to Inti for our soccer summer camps and games throughout the year. They, along with organizations such as Amherst Soccer Club, also contribute soccer equipment such as cleats, sneakers, shin guards, jerseys, t-shirts, soccer pinnies, shorts, jackets, keeper gloves, soccer balls, and portable goals.
Most of the children we serve are refugees or immigrants with little or no financial resources. They are in desperate need of quality after-school programming that can give them the soccer training, academic support, and character development to help grow with confidence and to enrich their lives.
Inti Academy of Manchester is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization so all donations are tax deductable. Our EIN is 26-4232954.
We are a very cost conscious organization. We have only one half-time paid staff member, Jaime Pendleton, Director of Programming, and a few hourly-paid teachers and coaches. We are thankful to our college volunteers from Southern New Hampshire University and St. Anselm College. Our administrative costs are minimal, less than 4% of operating costs and they are funded directly by our board members and not by outside contributions. Your donation will flow through 100% to our soccer and academic programming and will directly benefit these disadvantaged children.
We need to raise about $40,000 per year. Thank you for considering Inti Academy for your next donation.
