Overview

Thank you for your interest in supporting Calvary Christian School! Calvary has three unique fundraising entities, which each generate funds for specific purposes.  We value parent participation and support, financial and volunteer, in all fundraising activities.

Annual Fund

The Annual Fund raises money to bridge the gap between tuition income and operating expenses. In addition, parents can contribute to an annual Christmas fund to acknowledge the Calvary staff.
  • Events: Annual Fund (Fall) and Staff Christmas Gifts (December). The goal for the 2018/19 Annual Fund was $900,000. Please visit the Annual Fund page to learn more about the Annual Fund Campaign or make a donation.
  • 2018/19 Annual Fund Results: We celebrate the generosity of the Calvary community in contributing over $890,000 to the Annual Fund. Parent participation reached nearly 90%, with 100% participation from faculty, staff, and Board of Trustees.

Parent Association

The Calvary Parent Association raises funds for facility and program enhancements through several parent fundraisers.
  • Events: Christmas Boutique, Hot Lunch Program (year-long) and several partnerships with community programs including AmazonSmile program, Ralph's Community Contribution Program and Box Tops for Education.
  • 2017/18 Results: The Parent Association raised close to $140,000 for the school through all of their programming. These funds were used to sponsor a large portion of our Community Service Program, as well as many of the community building events on campus (including the Back-to-School Picnic, the Father-Daughter Dance, Cultural Arts Week, Grandparents' Day, Cougar Olympics and more).

Calvary Foundation

The Calvary Foundation’s fundraising goal is to support the endowment and capital campaigns (such as funds for the Arts and Technology Center and the Sports Field).  Money is raised through capital campaigns, ongoing endowment and the bi-annual Spring Celebration gala event.  The Foundation also hosts the annual Golf Tournament each October (October 21, 2019). The next Spring Celebration will take place on April 4, 2020.
