A Vibrant Lifelong Learning Community

SOAR Invites Your Support!


Why Donate to SOAR?

SOAR has been a vibrant learning community in southeast Michigan since 2003, relying primarily on member fees for our financial viability. We have always worked very hard to provide our members with quality programming and other memorable experiences for a low fee.

Frequently throughout the year, SOAR encounters opportunities and challenges whose costs are not anticipated in our budget or covered by tuition. In 2018, for example, we will experience a significant cost increase as a result of relocating our offices and classrooms. In the years to come, as we strive to maintain our high standards of programming and to grow, we will need additional financial support from our members and friends. Here are some examples of our current and future needs:

  • Technology: New audio and visual equipment to improve members’ hearing and viewing
  • Marketing: Additional marketing materials and new methods to help us attract new and diverse members
  • Event Planning: Capability to feature authors, celebrities, political figures, business leaders and other prominent speakers at our special events
  • Reserves: Contingency plans and strategies to help us maintain affordable tuition, attractive surroundings and quality programming in the long term
