Faith Christian School is seeking sustainable financial support apart from income received through tuition. We aim to keep our tuition as affordable as possible and offer robust Tuition Assistance scholarships so that more students can benefit from a quality Christian education.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goals are to:
- Increase charitable donations
- Seek grants
- Increase our monthly giving program (Lion's Share) support
- Strengthen church partnerships
- Strengthen local business partnerships
- Increase awareness of Planned Giving opportunities

Faith Christian School is partnering with Dickerson-Bakker and Associates in a Annual Fund Master Plan project. We will leverage their over 30 years of experience and our 44 year heritage to collaborate on an updated strategy beginning June 2019.

We are grateful for the leadership of a ministry-driven school board, the support of alumni and their families, and people of the Yuba-Sutter community that value private, Christian education and want to help make it available as an education option.

Our Advancement Team will continue to:
- Hold fundraising events to connect donors to our mission and engage partnership
- Seek outside funding from foundations and businesses through grants
- Appeal to our constituents through personal contact, direct mail and email
- Provide easy online donation methods through our personal crowdfunding, FCS App, Facebook and Instagram
- Provide information and seminars on various methods and tax benefits of charitable giving
- Thank and update all of our donors with mission impact stories

Faith Christian School has a 44 year and continuing legacy of people who believe in the value of Christian education that are willing to financially sacrifice to make it possible. These people, whether the educators themselves or donors, coming together, with the grace of God is what makes it possible for our ministry to continue.

That connection and heart, combined with the strong leadership from our school board and administrators, and the passionate drive of our Advancement team, leads us into our next chapter!

Key Players:
- School Board
- Administrators and Faculty
- Advancement Team
- School Families
- Volunteers
- Alumni
- Local Businesses
- Churches
- Corporate Sponsorship/Grants

Our recent accomplishments include:
- Restructuring from a Development Office to an Advancement Team
- Upgrading to DonorPerfect Software with industry standard features of online forms, crowdfunding, bulk email, and customized reporting
- Increasing donor retention 15%
- Awarded 5 grants this year
- Record setting fundraising year with our Jog-a-thon, Spring Gala and Candy Sales

Next, we plan to build on this success as we partner with Dickerson-Bakker and Associates and hone our master plan. We are always looking to learn, grow, and advance the mission of Faith Christian School!
