Support BCS

Bayshore Christian School continues connecting children and families to Christ through Christian education.

As an independent Christian school, our ability to meet the changing needs of our student body rests entirely on a combination of tuition, fees, and charitable support. Each year our donors are parents and grandparents of current students and alumni as well as community members who appreciate the value of a Bayshore Christian education. We thank you for your support, which helps us continue our tradition of excellence.

KINDNESS – But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Galatians 5:22 LOVE-Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good. His love endures forever. Who made the great lights-His love endures forever. The sun to govern the day, His love endures forever. Psalm 136:1, 7-8 COURAGEOUS-Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9

THE Annual Fund

A letter from the Development office

The Annual Fund is the School's yearly campaign to raise funds in support of enhancing the operational budget. All independent schools are faced with this same need - to make up the difference between costs and tuition. Contributions help to close this gap that exists between tuition and the actual cost of a Bayshore Christian School education. 90% of independent schools operate on a tuition gap basis where the tuition is 10-25% less than total expenses. If Bayshore Christian relied solely on tuition income, we would price ourselves beyond the means of many families. In addition, gifts to the Annual Fund are tax-deductible, while tuition is not. Bayshore Christian counts on gifts of all sizes to bridge the gap between what tuition covers and the cost of a quality BCS education. Through the Annual Fund, we are able to enhance our operational budget in order to keep tuition affordable and strengthen our programming. Every dollar counts. Every gift matters. Every donor makes a difference.

The caliber of the BCS experience greatly depends on the resources available to the school. When you give to our Annual Fund, you enable Bayshore Christian School to continue our pattern of academic excellence, develop and enrich programs, and cultivate young minds. You make an investment in our youth, choice disciples of Jesus who have the potential to impact our world for the cause of Christ. Our board of directors, staff, teachers, and faculty are so committed to your students that they all give a part of their salary back to the school as a donation. We are blessed to have our school community 100% invested in BCS.

As we kick off the first year of our Annual Fund Campaign, we are asking families to invest $25 a month into BCS. With 100% participation from our families, we can raise upwards of $55,000. We want all our families to be stakeholders in Bayshore Christian School. We understand every family has various financial commitments, so we are asking for you to commit to giving monthly, pledge a certain dollar amount to our Annual Fund. No amount is too small or too large when it comes to educating our students.

Can we count on you? Your constant support has allowed us to continue to achieve greatness in and outside of the classroom. We are asking you to put Bayshore Christian School as your philanthropic priority.

Our mission here at Bayshore Christian School is committed to challenging, developing, and empowering students for future leadership with a Biblical worldview within a diverse and nurturing environment, so that each student will follow the example of Jesus to "grow in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man." Luke 2:52

Every dollar counts. Every gift matters. Every donor makes a difference.

Thank you for blessing BCS,
