Each year, the Annual Fund contributes necessary, undesignated funds to the school’s operating budget to offset expenses not covered by tuition. Every family in the Covenant School community is asked to commit an annual gift to help bridge the gap between budgeted needs and tuition income. Every gift, regardless of size, is important to reaching our campaign goal.
Your participation in the Annual Fund makes the experience of today’s Covenant School students the best it has ever been, and your gift demonstrates your commitment to the mission of the school. Because of the generous support of parents, faculty, staff, grandparents, trustees and friends, The Covenant School continues to provide excellent education with a Biblical worldview.
Dear Covenant School Families and Friends,
I so appreciate the vibrancy of the Covenant School community! Every day there are new experiences and there is new learning happening in children at every grade level. Teachers are bringing creative and thoughtful plans to the classroom where students are engaged and excited about learning. Moms and dads give of their time and energy all year long to help make their children’s school experience memorable and fun.
One important way we bring life to the school is through our Annual Fund gifts. Every member of our community – regardless of their schedule or skills – has the opportunity to plant a seed of giving that will grow into a learning experience for a child. Together with the support of others, your gift may enhance a child’s class experience with state-of-the-arts learning tools. It may strengthen the teacher’s use of best teaching practices by enabling members of the faculty to attend a teaching conference. Your gift may enable a student in need of financial aid to attend The Covenant School, giving them a life-changing educational opportunity. Every gift benefits every child every day.
As with most independent schools, your tuition dollars account for about 85-90% of the annual budget. Tuition dollars go to make school possible; while Annual Fund dollars go to make the school come alive, enabling us to continue this ministry of teaching Truth to our students. Please let this be a season of prayer as you consider making The Covenant School a giving priority on some level for your family.
Thank you for supporting excellence in our spiritual and academic ministry.
