Annual Fund

What is the Annual Fund?

The Annual Fund is our most important fundraising effort at FCS.  It is the instrument through which we are able to raise funds to support the school’s mission “to provide an excellent educational experience.” Tuition alone does not provide the necessary funds to fulfill this mission so each year we set financial goals for our Annual Fund to allow us to purchase items that we believe will help us enrich and enhance our students’ educational experience through investments in state-of-the-art technology, innovative curriculum, and physical assets.

Gifts to the Friendship Christian School Annual Fund are tax-deductible in accordance with the law and will be acknowledged promptly for tax purposes.

 

Why is the Annual Fund important to FCS?

 Goal 1: Keep tuition and fees accessible

 Goal 2: Be good stewards of what God has given us

 Goal 3: Provide for the needs of our students

 Goal 4: Enhance the overall educational experience of our students
