RCS Foundation 
2023 Annual Campaign

kids 2023 web.jpg

For more than a century, the Rochester Christian School community has witnessed God’s unwavering faithfulness. Alongside the school, the RCS Foundation is now in its 29th year of dedicated support to RCS. Throughout these decades, the Foundation has evolved into a vital pillar of financial assistance to the school, and now serves as a modern-day mechanism that carries on the longstanding tradition of the Christian community supporting RCS.


From its inception, neighbors helping neighbors has been the cornerstone of how the school has operated. The school’s founders held a deep conviction that every family desiring their children to attend RCS should have the opportunity. Initially, this principle was upheld through supporting church congregations, fundraisers and contributions from families who could afford to give a little extra alongside their tuition payments. As time passed, these sources fell short of meeting the financial demands. It was at this point the RCS Foundation was established.


Thanks to the generosity of our caring community, the Foundation’s contribution to the school has grown to represent nearly one-third of the fundraising portion of the 2023-24 RCS budget. In the 2023-24 school year, the Foundation will contribute a total $43,000 to RCS. Over $18,000 of those funds come from scholarship funds and will go directly toward tuition for several families who are facing unusual circumstances and would have otherwise been unable to have their children attend RCS this school year. A powerful example of how every donation makes a real difference to RCS and its families.


In its mission to provide increasing support to the school, the Foundation now raises funds through an Annual Campaign. The 2023 fundraising goal is $50,000. We need your help to achieve this goal. Our hope is that you will generously contribute to the RCS Foundation’s 2023 Annual Campaign. Your gift will help ensure that Christian education remains available to present and future generations.
