The Foundation offers you several gifting opportunities:
The Foundation raises funds for Rochester Christian School each year through an annual campaign.
Rochester Christian School relies on financial support beyond tuition to cover operating expenses. Tuition only covers about 80% of the school's budget, but we believe in keeping tuition as low as possible to make Christian education available to all families.
By raising funds now through our annual campaign, we add to the Foundation's Endowment Fund, so we can continue to ensure that the exceptional Christian education offered at Rochester Christian School will be available now and for future generations. By increasing the Foundation Endowment Fund, more dollars can be used to supplement the operating costs of the school.
Every gift lives on for years to come as the interest dollars from the Endowment Fund are contributed each year to Rochester Christian School.
You can honor the memory of a loved one or dear friend with a memorial gift to the Foundation. You can also acknowledge a special celebration with a donation in honor of a special occasion, such as a wedding or anniversary, a birth, or a graduation. A specially printed note card will be sent to the person or family letting them know about your act of kindness. Tribute donations are added to the Foundation's Endowment Fund and make an ever-lasting impact to the school and its families.
