GIVING TO SCCS

There are several ways to support Christian education at Southwest Chicago Christian Schools. Generous givers are an integral part of who SCCS is. They are partners in our mission of providing a Christ-centered learning community. In addition, each gift received, whether an Annual Fund gift, an estate gift, a restricted gift, student fundraisers, or a gift of volunteer time is a statement of commitment to the value, purpose and importance of Christian education.

SCCS welcomes the opportunity to participate in your employer’s matching gift program – an easy way to double or triple your gift.

Below is a list of ongoing giving opportunities.

2018-19 ANNUAL FUND

While tuition payments bring in the majority of our income, SCCS still must raise funds to make up the difference between this income and what it costs to educate our students.   The Annual Fund exists to help keep tuition affordable so that we can serve as many families as possible.  These gifts support our highest educational priorities and are spent throughout the academic year.  These are a few examples of how the Annual Fund gifts will be used this year:

  • The Association Office and all three campuses are continuing in a multi-year upgrade of our student information system to streamline processes, saving time and resources, and providing better feedback to parents.
  • Campus teams are working diligently through the School Improvement Plan, which was developed during our re-accreditation in 2016-17.  The plan includes developing structures for reaching both low and high achieving students, and developing the curricula to work seamlessly from elementary through high school.
  • The curriculum committee is in the process of choosing a new science textbook for elementary students.  The new curriculum replaces textbooks from ten years ago, and will include hands-on experiments, the use of scientific processes, and encourage finding solutions for real world problems.

SCCS commits to you to be diligent and effective in our work and how we spend these funds.  Please join us by giving to the Annual Fund.  For more information about the Annual Fund, click here:  Annual Fund.  To make a donation to the Annual Fund, click on the Donate Now button on this page.
