Ways to Give

Build Into the Future of CHS

Every gift to CHS makes a difference and we are grateful for your support.  There are many ways to give to CHS and we encourage you to invest in our school in whatever ways match your interest and ability.

Tuition Assistance Fund

The Tuition Assistance Fund at Christian Heritage School exists to extend the blessing of an excellent Christian private education to families who would not otherwise be able to afford to pay tuition in full. Using the model of the disciples in Acts 4:35, the administration of the school allocates a portion of its resources to families demonstrating financial need. As a result, our community consists of a broad array of students from varying socioeconomic backgrounds.

Under IRS regulations, direct gifts to individuals are not tax-deductible. Gifts to the school’s Tuition Assistance Fund, however, are tax-deductible as long as they are made to meet the needs of any family in need of financial assistance to send their child to Christian Heritage School.

Tuition Sponsorship Fund

In 2004 CHS was approached by an anonymous donor who desired to assist families who required financial assistance to send their children to CHS but who needed more assistance than the Tuition Assistance Fund could provide. This donor’s heart for these families, combined with a very generous financial gift, was the beginning of the Tuition Sponsorship Fund, which has helped dozens of families since its inception.

Monies from the Tuition Sponsorship Fund are allocated in addition to the Tuition Assistance program.

Undesignated Gifts

Undesignated gifts are most welcome by CHS. Undesignated gifts are those in which the donor has not requested that the money given be used for any specific purpose, nor has the donor given any guidelines or restrictions for its use. Instead, the donor has given Christian Heritage permission to use the funds wherever they are most needed, which allows CHS to fill current or pressing needs and to fund special projects as they arise during the fiscal year.

Matching Gifts

Many companies offer a Matching Gift Program Be sure to ask if a portion of the contributions you make to CHS can be matched by your employer. Some employers will even match your donation dollar for dollar!
