Your donations are critical in providing the resources to hire and retain our great faculty, whose passion is to encourage the hearts, minds, and souls of your children to embody these traits for the rest of their lives…and is an investment for eternity. This year, your support is appreciated more than ever in light of extra expenses incurred due to the pandemic.
- Peter Baur, Head of School
Every Donation Matters
Faith Christian School relies on donations to bridge the gap between actual expenses and tuition, to provide increased opportunities for our students, and to make a lasting impact in our community. All gifts are fully tax-deductible. We can directly accept donations and you can also choose to take advantage of the programs below that reward us when you do your routine shopping!
Here are a few ways you can give to the mission of Faith Christian School:
Please make checks payable to “Faith Christian School.” You may send your gift to:
Development Office, Faith Christian School, 3585 Buck Mountain Road, Roanoke, VA 24018
Access our secure site by clicking the “Donate” button below.
Annual Bridge Fund
Faith Christian School has the honor of coming alongside the parents of our students to inspire our students to love Jesus, God loves, and to prepare them-not just to survive a post-Christian culture—but to engage culture toward Kingdom ends. As a donor, your contribution to Faith Christian School allows you to assist us in carrying out our mission of offering an education that surpasses knowledge and instills wisdom and virtue.
The Annual Bridge Fund bridges the gap between tuition revenue and the actual cost of a Faith Christian School education. Tuition covers approximately 80% of the actual cost.
Contributions can be made through our secure online system or by check.
Project Faith is held the last Friday of every April. Project Faith raises much-needed funds for the school, all while providing a service to the Roanoke Valley. Project Faith typically raises around $200,000 each year.
If you work for a company that matches gifts to schools, your contribution to Faith Christian School may be doubled. Corporate matching gifts count toward your leadership society and club memberships. Please ask for forms in your benefits office.
Gifts of Securities
If you would like to give a gift of securities, please contact Jay Whitmore, Director of Development at 540-769-5200 ext. 138 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
