The Annual Fund is a campaign that happens every year to assist with the overall budget of Reach Christian Schools.
Each year, we need to raise approximately $250,000. Giving a general donation to the annual fund helps keep tuition low, eliminates debt, and assists with recurring operational needs. Contributions can also be made to an individual school or a particular program. Every dollar donated to the schools advances Christian education and help us to better form the souls in our care.
Annual fund contributions are directed toward the following:
Financial Aid - $175,000
We want every child to have the opportunity to benefit from a Christ-centered education. Financial aid provides tuition assistance to families demonstrating financial need or an unexpected hardship.
Fine Arts - $15,000
Music and the Arts are irreplaceable aspects of study for a well-educated student. We require both music and art classes throughout the curriculum at our schools. Drama is also an essential part of the curriculum.
Athletics - $20,000
We want to provide a variety of opportunities for our students to develop their physical abilities; however, our sport fees do not fully cover the expenses of our athletic programs. Donations are needed for equipment, facility needs, membership dues, and uniforms.
Academic Support Services - $10,000
Many of our students benefit from specialized curriculum and tutoring throughout the year.
Experiential Learning - $10,000
Hands-on experiential learning is a fun, memorable, and engaging way to awaken the imagination of our children. Field trips, guest lecturers, and interactive classroom instruction all help to raise the level of education for our students.
Technology - $20,000
Technology has a very practical and useful place in the education of our students and requires yearly updates of equipment, software, and support services.
We will commence with the following improvements once we have raised 100% of the funding for the projects below:
Reach Cafe - $10,000
Start Date Goal: December 21, 2017
We are creating a gathering place at the Red Lion campus to build Christian community. The current chapel lobby is being converted to a cafe where parents can gather after dropping off their students or before picking them up. This community space will be open for prayer, work, coffee, and fellowship.
Red Lion Campus Chapel - $40,000
Start Date Goal: June 15, 2018
Our current campus chapel has become well-worn from the many hours of Bible classes, chapel services, and many campus events. Updating this area with new carpet, fresh paint, and 500 chairs will create a more beautiful and functional space for classes and school events.
Auxiliary Gym - $70,000
Start Date Goal: June 15, 2019
Our auxiliary gym needs a new floor, fresh paint, and bleachers. These updates will allow us to use the auxiliary gym as a competition area for middle school games and activities. Updating the auxiliary gym will free up space for high school athletics and events.
If you desire to donate to a specific program or school, please communicate that to us, and we will earmark that donation and apply it appropriately.
