Growing Faith, Leaving Legacies
Highland Christian School's Foundation has been blessing our community for over 35 years! We are so thankful for the vision, wisdom, and stability that our members contribute as we prepare students to impact their world for Christ.
More than 4,000 students have been educated and equipped to take their place in our homes, churches, and communities since Highland Christian was founded in 1909. In order to preserve this rich heritage, the Highland Christian School’s Foundation Fund was established in 1985.
What is the Foundation Fund?
The HCS Foundation Fund’s purpose is to provide a permanent source of income for Highland Christian School to help keep Christian education affordable for generations to come. Gifts given to the Foundation Fund are restricted for this purpose and the actual amount of the gift is retained and invested. Annual earnings from the Foundation Fund are used to pay operating expenses of the school and thus reduce the amount of tuition that must be paid for each student.
Gifts to the Foundation Fund under this arrangement are truly gifts that keep on giving.
#1. Engage the broader Christian community in the long-term stewardship plan of HCS
#2. Grow the Foundation Fund to a principal balance of $10M
HCS Foundation | Annual Membership Appeal
The HCS Foundation is more than a fund. It is a community of people who give generously to see that Highland Christian School remains strong and vibrant for years to come. Behind the scenes, our Foundation Board works year-round to represent YOU as they manage our investments, curate resources, and work with the School Board to plan for Highland Christian School’s financial future.
Each year, in the month of February, we invite you to join us in this cause through a gift during our Annual Appeal. Gifts given to this appeal are invested for the exclusive use and benefit of Highland Christian School. You can read the full 2023 Foundation Appeal here.
When you give a gift in your will, you model to your loved ones a legacy of generosity. By naming Highland Christian School or the HCS Foundation in your will you will help ensure that Highland Christian School continues to impact kids for Christ for generations to come.
Gifts of stock or real-estate can have enormous tax benefits and savings opportunities allowing you to maximize your impact on Highland Christian School. While cash gifts are the most common type of gift we receive, a gift of non-cash assets is more cost-effective for you!
Tribute gifts are a great way to celebrate a moment or commemorate a legacy! Give a gift to honor your loved one's special occasion or in memory of their life well lived. We praise God for the faithful parents, grandparents, and friends who have laid the foundation for us. View our Tribute Wall
