FAQs

Are there financial costs involved for a student to participate in the Sagamore program?

There are certain costs associated with both the school-year program and the Sagamore Summit. These costs are necessary to help us maintain the various operating expenses associated with the Sagamore Initiative. We are continually looking for ways to keep the costs at a reasonable level for students and their families so that they are not prohibited from this experience. (If you do find the costs to be prohibitive for you, please let us know.)

Is the Sagamore Leadership Initiative affiliated with any specific church or organization?

The Sagamore Leadership Initiative is an independently established 501c3 non-profit organization. We are not affiliated with any particular church, denomination, or other organization. But we do strive to build collaborative relationships with any like-minded organizations who may be interested in partnering with us in our leadership development efforts. Thus, we have been privileged to partner with churches like Kingsway Christian Church and the Community Church at Murphy's Landing and other organizations in order to better facilitate our leadership development programming.

More specifically, the Sagamore reference also has connections to one of Indiana’s highest awards, The Sagamore of the Wabash. It was first established in the 1940's by Indiana governor Ralph F. Gates and is given to Hoosiers who have made a significant contribution to the life and heritage of Indiana.
