Annual Fund Drive continues as fiscal year concludes

While tuition dollars are our primary source of revenue, it is impossible to operate a school like LCS using only tuition income. Your tax-deductible gift of any amount to the LCS Annual Fund supports the greatest needs of the school such as scholarships, endowment, athletics, technology, and the life-changing teaching that we value at LCS. Our fiscal year ends on June 30, 2021. As of this moment we are at 89% of our this year’s goal, which means we still need $14,465.07 before the end of this month. Would you consider supporting the school with a tax-deductible donation? We are grateful for your generous support!

We’d like to share a letter we recently sent to the LCS community.


Dear LCS Community,

As a creek becomes a stream, and a stream becomes a river, there are places along the way that are out of the ordinary. At some points there are rapids, at others calm waters, and at still others there may be sharp curves in the path of the waterways. In the same way, there are times in the history of any organization that are particularly meaningful and noteworthy. Lima Christian School is experiencing one of those special times in its history.

The pandemic caused us to reflect upon not only how we do things, but why we do them. At LCS, we did not settle for mere adaptability to the present pandemic moment, but we began to innovate for the future. We have seen new faculty and staff hires, and our school board has welcomed multiple new members. With deep appreciation for all who have gone before us, we find ourselves at a time where fresh eyes and fresh thinking are being brought to bear on our ministry. Just as old wineskins are inappropriate for new wine, there are some aspects of our past that are being left behind. This season is fueling a level of passion and willingness to release faith to “conquer giants.” It is an exciting time to be a part of LCS!

There are a couple of ways that you can participate with us in this exciting time. We are profoundly thankful for your past financial support, and we invite you to prayerfully consider contributing to our 2020-2021 Annual Fund. While tuition dollars are our primary source of revenue, it is impossible to operate a school like LCS using only tuition income. Any financial support that you are able to provide now will enable us to continue to press into the exciting future that is ahead for LCS.

Your gift of any amount to the LCS Annual Fund supports the greatest needs of the school such as scholarships, endowment, athletics, technology, and the life changing teaching that we value at LCS. Click here to make a tax-deductible donation.

A second way that you can make a meaningful impact is to pray about families that you know who have children who would benefit from the education that LCS provides. We have the capacity at every grade level to increase our enrollment. To educate 20 students in a classroom costs no more than to educate 15. The difference, however, of 5 more students’ tuition dollars makes a major impact on our budget. Quite simply, we need those additional students. If you know anyone who is not currently part of the LCS community, please consider sharing with us their contact information via reply to this e-mail. We will reach out to them and invite them to explore what LCS has to offer.

Thank you for your support and generosity!

Sincerely Yours,
James Schwartz
School Board Member
