S.T.A.R.S. MATH & ENGLISH ACADEMY Board Members will consider S.T.A.R.S. MATH & ENGLISH ACADEMY a philanthropic priority and make annual gifts that reflect that priority. So that S.T.A.R.S.

MATH & ENGLISH ACADEMY expects to have 100 percent of Board Members make an annual contribution that is commensurate with their capacity.
