Maplewood Academy Capital Campaign
For Maplewood Academy to continue to fulfill its God-given mission to work towards the education and salvation of the young people entrusted to us, a new cafeteria building is vital. The need for these funds is urgent. For construction to begin this summer, the funds must be raised this spring for 70% of the building cost. Please prayerfully consider how you might be able to contribute to this exciting project that will support the entire Minnesota Conference, as Maplewood is the location for conference events such as camp meetings, music fest, and various Pathfinder events. Thank you in advance for your support for the young people of Minnesota and the surrounding areas.

Maplewood Academy is truly blessed to have the generous support of those who give to our Worthy Student Fund. Unfortunately, here in our Conference, we still have many deserving students who are unable to afford or find scholarships to cover the costs associated with a quality Christian education. Please consider giving a gift that will impact a young person’s life for eternity by making a gift to Maplewood Academy’s Worthy Student Fund. Thank you for your generosity.
66% of Americans do not have a written plan for their estate when they die. Are you one of them?
Did you know that if you die without a will, trust, or other legal plan and you have no surviving spouse, a probate court will determine what happens with your property and financial assets, who will care for your minor children, and even your pets? You may have been a faithful giver to God’s work all your life and want to leave something to support your church. Your children may have been raised with Christian beliefs and values and even attended Adventist schools. But these factors may have little or no impact at all on the court’s decision. The cost and timeframe of probating an estate are also considerable. Why let a court determine what happens with your property, who gets your money, or who will raise your children, when you can make those decisions yourself in advance? We would be glad to assist you with creating an estate plan that will help ensure that your wishes will be followed.
