The people, programs and facilities that make Calvary Christian School an exceptional education would not be possible without the commitment and financial support of the entire Calvary community.
The Calvary Annual Fund is an essential component of the financial health of the school. It is a part of our school’s formal financial strategy and it is a commitment made when enrolling children at Calvary Christian School. The Annual Fund allows families to make a tax-deductible contribution to their child’s education, in essence making a portion of tuition tax-deductible.
We are thankful for the generous gifts from Calvary families for the Annual Fund goal for 2019/20! Our Annual Fund goal for the 2019/20 school year was $1,000,000. We had 83% of parent participation, and 100% participation from staff, faculty and our Board of Trustees, raising over $828,000. This “tuition gap” translates to approximately $3,500 per student in TK-8th grade and $1,800 per child in Preschool 3 & Preschool 4. While we recognize that individual giving will depend on each family’s financial situation, we ask for all
members of our community to participate at a meaningful level. Meeting our Annual Fund goal requires that we receive multiple gifts in the $10,000 to $30,000 range. As always, Annual Fund giving levels at Calvary Christian School are confidential and anonymous.
