Your stewardship to GRACE Christian School changes lives.
At GRACE, we are “known” for a lot of things. We are known for our strong tradition of academic excellence. We are known for our athletics – not only our physical abilities, but also our sportsmanship and camaraderie. We are known for our loving community – our faculty, staff, teachers, students, parents, siblings, grandparents and neighbors who are bonded together in the mission to spiritually and academically equip, challenge and inspire our students to impact their world for Christ.
The extraordinary generosity of our GRACE parents, staff, families, alumni and community enables us to sustain and expand on that important mission. That’s why we ask you to join us in giving to the Annual Fund – All Families. All In.
Because of Annual Fund….
Your generosity to the annual fund has provided:
- A lower campus playground upgrade
- An upper campus outdoor dining and student gathering space
- New technologies to support virtual learning (iPads, Swivls, etc.)
- A new passenger bus
- COVID-19 safety enhancements (temperature scanners, Clorox 360 system, PPE such as masks and hand sanitizer, touchless water fountains and more!)
- Classroom redesigns in TK, kindergarten and 3rd grade
- Upgraded security cameras and systems
And these are just a handful of programs, improvements and upgrades that were made possible only through the Annual Fund.
GRACE Christian School is a 501(c)(3) organization, so all gifts are tax deductible. Our federal tax ID number is available upon request to our donors.
Gifts of all kinds are welcome, including cash, property, and securities. Additionally, there are many forms of planned giving (such as bequests, trusts, and annuities) that may be explored. To discuss this type of gift to GRACE, please contact our CFO, Karen O’Conner, at koconner@GRACEChristian.net.
With a school the size of GRACE, we recognize we have families in various financial situations – some who can easily write a check for $10,000 without thinking twice, and some whose gift of $50 would be a sacrifice. We love that Jesus sets the clearest picture of how we are to acknowledge gifts – which is to look at the heart of the giver, not the amount that is given. Again, this is why at GRACE we choose to measure the “success” of our Annual Fund not in dollars raised, but in the percentage of families who committed.
We understand that any amount you give to GRACE above and beyond your tuition dollars is donated trusting that we, as school leaders, will steward your funds wisely. So we make the following promises to you:
First and foremost, to offer thanks to God for your generosity to our school, ask you for gifts that fit your own prosperity, and honor you as a giver.
Asking you to invest in God’s work at GRACE will be accompanied by our leadership’s accountability and good stewardship in spending your money in the way you intended.
We will use your gift to move GRACE forward on behalf of the children within the context of a plan that demonstrates excellent stewardship and long-term financial sustainability.
