Evangel Christian School is a non-profit organization solely supported by the tuition fees and generous donations given by parents, grandparents, relatives, friends and alumni. Tuition fees in themselves cover the day-to-day running of the school and do not completely cover the cost of education at ECS.
In an effort to keep tuition costs down and to help offset the costs of improvements and the purchase of new equipment, several fundraisers are run throughout the year. Traditionally, ECS will run a catalog sale in the fall, a food related fundraiser (like pizza and sweets) in time for super bowl, and a read-a-thon in the spring. The revenue generated from these fundraisers is extremely helpful in providing resources to the students. Your support of these fundraisers goes a long way to creating the quality of education that we desire to provide to our students.
Outside of these fundraisers, there are other ways to support the school and the school community at large. An example of this is the Annual Fund. Part of the Annual Fund includes tuition assistance for families that encounter an unforeseen event like a medical hardship, temporary job loss, or a death in the family. Because of donations to this fund, students who would otherwise have to withdraw from the school may remain in the school to continue their education. This type of sacrificial giving fosters a sense of community and strengthens the biblical principals taught at ECS. In addition to the tuition assistance portion of the Annual Fund, other goal areas are set each year.
The Fund for ECS ensures that future generations of ECS students will receive an excellent education from talented faculty, first-rate curriculum resources, and up-to-date technology. The following outlines the goals for the 2012-2013 school year.
Annual fund 2012-2013 Goal is $25,000
All monies donated to the annual fund will be dispersed as follows:
Tuition Assistance 50%
Playground project 25%
Please contact the school office if you would like to donate to the annual fund. All donations to this fund are completely tax deductible. If you are writing a check, please designate in the memo for “ECS Annual Fund”.
