CREATING A CULTURE OF GIVING
Los Gatos Christian School is committed to carrying on a tradition of excellence in Christian education. To that end, financial support through fundraising is an integral part of that education. Los Gatos Christian School receives no financial funding from local, state or federal governments. We are a non-profit institution, which means that donations are essential for us to implement new programs and approaches that best enable our children to develop 21st century skills.
As we establish annual fundraising goals, it is important that families participate at a level that is comfortable and commensurate with their financial ability throughout their tenure with our school.
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.
INTRODUCING THIS YEAR'S FOCUS
Funds raised during the 2017/18 school year will be focused on "People and Programs." "People" includes contribtuions to our tuition assistance and scholarship fund so that more families can experience the advantages of Christian educations. "Programs" that will benefit from our fundraising efforts are music and art. These thriving programs will have an even greater impact developing our students' God-given gifts and talents.
