What is the ELCA Fund?
The ELCA Fund is a yearly fundraising appeal to bridge the gap between the total cost of operating our school and tuition revenue. Contrary to popular belief, tuition does not cover the full cost of educating each student. It takes tuition and charitable donations to provide the distinctive qualities that ELCA offers including smaller classes, exemplary teachers, exceptional academics, fine arts, and athletic programs, more personal attention, and an unapologetically Christian foundation for our students. Also, gifts to the ELCA Fund are tax deductible where tuition is not.
Where do the dollars go?
Gifts to the ELCA Fund - Excellence supplement our operating budget and provide unrestricted resources for the school's immediate needs. These needs include faculty/staff development, technology, program support for all levels of the school, and facility maintenance.
Gifts to the Families Helping Families Fund provides needs based tuition assistance to current and new families who desire Kingdom Education for their children.
How can my donation make a difference?
Every gift makes a difference, regardless of the amount. For some families the gift could be as small as $5 - $10. For others it could be hundreds or thousands of dollars. Giving comes from the heart. We encourage you to pray and give according to your means to support our ministry. Also, increased participation in giving by the ELCA community, including our ministry team, faculty/staff, parents, and alumni helps pave the way for potential future support from outside organizations and charitable foundations.
Ways to Give to ELCA
ELCA accepts gifts in a number of different ways including cash, credit cards, appreciated stock, and matching gifts. ELCA is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, therefore gifts to the school are tax deductible as provided by law (please consult your accounting professional for additional information). If you would like to make a gift, please contact Al Hosford in the Advancement Office at (678) 818-1031 or email Al Hosford.
