THE Annual Fund
August 24th - october 16th, 2020
The Annual Fund is the School's yearly campaign to raise funds in support of enhancing the operational budget. Through the Annual Fund we are able to enhance our operational budget in order to keep tuition affordable and strengthen our programming. We hastened our 3 year iPad initiative to continue facilitating learning for the 2020/2021 school year. Phase I of our initiative was executed in January of 2020 for our 7th-12th grade students in part due to last year's Annual Fund efforts. Phase II & III include iPads for Kindergarten through Sixth grade, Apple TVs, LIVE stream cameras and more. We are blessed to be able to provide these necessary tools for our students.
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.
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.

Frequently Asked Questions
We use annual fund donations to enhance the operational budget of the school and to control tuition costs.
As we strive to keep tuition affordable for all families, tuition does not cover the full cost of educating a student. There is a financial gap per student each year. We count on donor support to fill the gap and aid in keeping tuition affordable for all those who wish to enroll their child/ren at Bayshore Christian School.
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
A significant increase in tuition would greatly impact the social and economic diversity of the school. This same diversity is what makes Bayshore unique and provides a wonderful environment for our students. As tuition increases, middle-income families are greatly impacted. Lower income families will qualify for financial aid, more affluent families will have less of an impact by tuition increases. For this reason, we count on your donations and support.
Every donation is important and will impact a student at Bayshore Christian School; no amount is too large or too small.
Interested families submit an application for financial assistance through FACTS Grant & Aid. FACTS representatives use the information provided to determine each family's level of need. This information, along with a letter from the family that explains their family's unique needs, is used to make a determination by an anonymous financial aid team.
