The Lion's Pride
I am honored to address King’s alumni, parents and friends in this issue of The Lion’s Pride for the first time, and I am also honored that I have joined King’s Academy this past March to support the mission and vision of this institution. We have completed fiscal year 2019-2020 at King’s Academy raising US $4,634,295 in gifts and with total fundraising activity, including pledged amounts, reaching $5M. We are privileged to have received gifts from 360 donors who are our partners in advancing the mission of His Majesty King Abdullah II bin Al Hussein “to develop and empower young leaders who will drive change within and beyond their communities, and eventually across borders.”
