BRIDGING THE GAP
The value of a Christian education cannot be measured in dollars and cents. Instead, we measure the successes of a Christian education by the extent to which our children understand themselves in relationship with God and the world in which they live. Grace Christian School prepares students to live lives that bring glory to God through our emphasis on faith, virtue, and knowledge.
The quality of education Grace Christian School provides is not possible without the generous giving of those who believe in our mission. These dollars and cents help us provide the necessary environment to develop the minds and hearts of young men and women. This money helps us Bridge the Gap between what we charge in tuition and what it truly costs to educate each child. A common misconception is that tuition alone covers the cost of educating our students. Typical of most independent schools, our tuition only covers about 75% of the cost to educate a student.
McGRADY BUILDING FUND
$70,000 dollars of $225,000 has been donated. Currently, the junior-senior high school is squeezed into the church. Thank you for your help!
The purpose of the fund is to support Grace Christian School.
This endowment fund is a “forever fund” for GCS. The contributions are invested, and each year grants are made from the earnings of the fund. 5% of the fund will be granted to GCS each year and as the fund grows, it will be able to better support the important work of the school… forever!
Contributions to the fund are accepted from anyone at any time. You may make a donation by check, credit card (recurring payments available), or online. We also accept gifts of securities (stocks and bonds), life insurance, charitable trusts, and bequests (in your will).
