Each year, Ralph and Rob contibute to the Crossover community and we are so grateful for their generosity.

The Pegasus School

Computers, e-readers, clothes, school supplies, and lots of good will have been shared by the Pegasus School. In addition, many of the major donors and contributors to the projects have come from The Pegasus School. 

Champlain Investment Partners, LLC

In 2019-2020 Champlain Investment Partners financed the dinning hall and kitchen area. The project hit some delays due to weather and political unrest but the dining hall is now functional. It was a team effort through a series of donations by Champlain Investment employees and matching contributions that made the dining hall possible. That you Rusty!

Tennis Serves Others

In 2017, Tennis Serves Others chose Wings for Crossover as their charity to support for the year. The made a large donation that went to the purchase of cows. The herd grazes on land nearby and has successfully become a part of the overall plan at Crossocer. By the end of 2020, the herd of cows had grown slightly faster than we had expected. The cows provide a much needed source income.

Tom Ferry

Thanks to Tom Ferry’s efforts and support in 2013 we raised nearly $19,000!  Tom Ferry is a renowned motivational speaker and business coach focused on helping real estate professionals reach their fullest potential.  Every year thousands of professionals from around the world meet in Southern California for Tom’s largest event of the year – the Success Summit.  Through this platform attendees learn about Wings for Crossover and are able to purchase items with all proceeds benefiting the charity.  The money raised during the 2013 Summit alone allowed Wings for Crossover to purchase land in Ghana and begin construction on a much-needed school and sleeping accommodations for the children.

 

Tom Ferry’s 2014 Success Summit took place in Anaheim, CA August 5-8. Tom’s team at the Summit raised awareness and helped coordinate donations of nearly $20,000 again! The attendees of the Summit were friendly and enthusiastic about supprting Wings for Crossover. This year’s campaign contributed to the final stages of construction of the elementary and middle school classrooms. Tom Ferry and the attendees of the Success Summit over the last two years have been instrumental in helping Wings for Crossover complete the first phase of construction. 

Tom has continued to be a major supporter throughout the year at Wings for Crossover. Thank you Tom!
