THE LIONS’ FOCUS
In the 2019-20 school year, LGCS was blessed to receive a substantial grant from a private charitable foundation to be matched by our community. In total, we raised over $300,000 to be used towards classroom technology upgrades, enhancements to our science program, and equipping our classrooms for the future. You can see many of these elements in action today on-campus. Each classroom now features an interactive digital whiteboard and projection system, an optional Swivl camera system to enable remote learning should the need arise, additional science equipment in the middle school, and more to come!
As we navigate the 2020-21 school year, we remain committed to providing students with an academically rigorous, Christ-centered education. We will continue investments in the classroom learning environment and tuition assistance for families that need it during these challenging times. We encourage all families and friends of the LGCS community to consider a tax-deductible donation to Lions Give as part of your annual giving.
CREATING A CULTURE OF GIVING
LGCS operates under the Independent School Financial Model as do many of our local private school counterparts. This model understands as fact that tuition dollars alone cannot support the breadth and quality of curriculum, activities, and facilities in the Silicon Valley’s private schools.
Gifts to the Lions Give are used during the year in which they are received and are the primary source to cover the difference between the true cost of educating our students and tuition.
These gifts should be given on a level equal to a parents financial ability and personal calling. Achieving 100% participation is our goal. Participation means different things to different members of our community.
BECAUSE EVERY GIFT MATTERS
Your gift helps us fulfill our mission: to provide students with a foundation of high academic standards, from a Biblical worldview, in an environment the supports the development of passionate followers of Jesus Christ.
We wish to thank you for your investment in the programs, projects and initiatives that will change the lives of our students today and help create leaders of the future.
ONE-TIME AND RECURRING DONATIONS
There is no need to wait for an event to give to Los Gatos Christian School. Donate any time, or set up a recurring monthly or quarterly gift.
A gift of appreciated securities and mutual fund shares that are held for more than one year can sometimes be the most economical way to give. Gifts are tax-deductible at the fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift and donors will not have to recognize the appreciation as capital gain.
Please contact the Director of Financial Services at 408-997-4681 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for information about the stock transfer process.
Many organizations match charitable donations and volunteer service hours completed by their employees. Matching gifts can double or triple the size of the donation and allocate your company’s charitable giving dollars to Los Gatos Christian School.
Talk to your company’s human resources department. Our Tax ID Number is: 94-1201222 and we are listed as Christian Church of Los Gatos.
