2021 Annual Campaign

This year marks Rochester Christian School’s 105th anniversary. God has been faithful to the school as it continues to do a tremendous job of providing a vibrant environment combined with a high quality Christian education. Alongside the school, the RCS Foundation is now in its 27th year of support to RCS. Over these many years, the Foundation has grown to be a vital part of financial assistance to the school and now serves as a modern-day mechanism that carries on the tradition of the Christian community supporting RCS.


When you contribute to the Foundation, whether you make a general annual donation, a memorial gift, or designate to a scholarship fund, your dollars become part of the Foundation endowment fund. This fund earns income, which is donated to the school each year. Last school year alone, over $30,000 was distributed to the school from the Foundation endowment fund. 

 

Last year, public schools were largely required to implement some form of virtual learning. As a private school, RCS was able to develop a plan to offer full, 5 days a week, in-person learning as well as a virtual option. This school year, students are once again inside the building for in-person learning, 5 days a week. There are still COVID challenges. One example is that a reduction in class sizes is required to maintain social distancing in student work areas. The good news is that enrollment at RCS is up from last school year, and all classrooms are either at or near capacity. However, with the total number of allowed students being lower than pre-COVID, there are financial concerns for the school, given that it is supporting the same number of classrooms, but fewer students and less tuition income. This is just one of many examples of why your support is so vital.

 

In order to continue to provide increasing support to the school, the Foundation raises funds through an Annual Campaign. The 2021 fundraising goal is $50,000. Our prayer is that you will contribute what you can to the RCS Foundation 2021 Annual Campaign. Your gift will help ensure that Christian education is available to families now and for generations to come.
