Berean Christian High School's Board of Directors recently established an Endowment fund to provide a source of long-term support for the school indepentent of tuition income. We timed this in part to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the founding of our outstanding school. We believe our Endowment fund will help us continue that work for the next 50 years. This Endowment will provide Berean with a firm financial foundation that will provide support to Berean Christian High School for years to come.
Now for more good news! The non-profit organization Talent Stewardship Foundation (TSF) has generously offered to match up to $100,000 in donations made to Berean's new Endowment fund if received by December 15, 2020. We are thankful for TSF's generosity and are grateful for the incentive they've given to our community to partner with us in these last weeks of the year! We would like to invite you to prayerfully consider participating in this unique opportunity in support of Berean Christian. Whether large or modest, your tax-deductible donation will help ensure we qualify for the full match and beyond.
There are multiple ways you can participate:
- Donate Now to the Endowment Fund
- You may remit a donation via check or donor-advised fund to the school office, payable to Berean Christian High School, noting "Endowment" in the memo field
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org to make a donation pledge or to inquire about how to donate non-cash assets such as stocks or real estate
"Where Needed Most"
Unrestricted "where needed most" donations to Berean Christian's general fund are welcome at any time, in any amount, and allow Berean Christian the flexibility to respond to unexpected needs that may arise or to supplement special campus improvement projects. Such donations are greatly appreciated and are fully tax deductible to the donor. Donate now to "Where Needed Most" Fund.
Each fall, Berean Christian invites the grandparents of our students to support our school in honor of their grandchildren by donating toward a special project to enhance our campus. Over the years, Berean Christian grandparents have generously donated to help our school realize various improvements such as an electronic communication sign, new chapel sound equipment, classroom televisions, computer lab upgrades, security enhancements, science lab equipment, and many other improvements. Although the main appeal is made to grandparents, anyone is welcome to contribute. Donate now to the Grandparents' Project Fund
Tuition Assistance Fund
A portion of Berean Christian's budget each year is allocated toward need-based financial assistance to offset tuition costs for qualifying families. Typically the annual board-approved amount has been fully allocated by the time the school year has begun, and thus, Berean Christian is not always able to later assist families who have an unexpected financial challenge arise mid-year because the assistance funds for the school year have already been fully depleted. Donations to the Tuition Assistance Fund allow Berean Chirstian opportunity to respond to more families with financial need, including those in crisis, year round. While donations to the Tuition Assistance Fund, administered by the Berean Board Finance Committee are fully tax deductible, be advised that "donations" made intended to benefit specifically-named students or families do not meet IRS qualifications for tax deductibility. Donate now to the Tuition Assistance Fund.
Other Designated Donations
Berean can also accept donations designated to its various programs and departments, such as Fine Arts, Athletics, Student Government, clubs, capital projects, and more. Online donors can use the "other" field and indicate the designation in the Comments section. Make a designated donation now.
Occasionally Berean may need to decline accepting a particular designated donation if the designation is too narrowly defined, or is not in line with Berean Christian's purposes or goals, or if the donation would not qualify as tax deductible as designated. If you are interested in making a designated donation but have a question if it would be accepted by Berean Christian according to your desired designation, please email Berean's Accounting Department.
