Join the Fort Worth Christian School Annual Fund.

The FWC Annual Fund was created to cover the GAP between tuition and the ACTUAL cost to educate students in a safe and effective environment. While our students are experiencing a tremendous education, every year brings new opportunities and new challenges. The Annual Fund often assists us in providing professional development opportunities for our teachers, increasing the amount of financial aid we can offer families, and it always helps us address the highest priorities in campus improvements.

This school year, the proceeds of Annual Fund will go first to finishing the securing of the perimeter of our campus with automated gate systems and additional security fencing. By joining the Annual Fund, you will help the school provide many security upgrades to ensure your children are as safe as possible while on our campus. If the gifts made to the Annual Fund exceed all of the primary security upgrades, please know that the leadership at FWC will prayerfully consider how to responsibly allocate this abundance. After last year's phenomenal response, we expect similar generosity especially as it relates to optimizing the safety and security of our kids while on campus.

3 IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS:
- PARTICIPATION: the Annual Fund is all about participation at any level. When the leadership of FWC requests grants from generous foundations, one of the key indicators of their willingness to grant FWC a significant gift is the level of participation in our Annual Fund. Last year, 100% of your Board of Trusts and your Faculty/Staff/Coaches participated and just under 70% of our parents participated, above the national average of all NAIS member schools (National Association of Independent Schools). The higher percentage of giving from our parent constituency, the increase opportunity we have of securing additional grants.
- MATCHING GIFTS: if your employer participates in a matching gift program, please contact the Advancement Team so we can help you make an even larger donation on behalf of the students at FWC!
- TAX IMPLICATIONS: to the fullest extent of the law, gifts to the Annual Fund are tax-deductible, unlike tuition payments. While some may wish to split some of their gifts over two tax years (2018 and 2019), the earlier the funds are raised will enable us to begin executing the security measures on our campus.
- GIFT FREQUENCY: you may wish to join the Annual Fund with a single gift this fall, a monthly gift over the next 10 months, or you may be able to give multiple gifts as the Lord provides. In last year's Annual Fund, their were both large and small donations, single donations, as well as individuals who gave at the launch of the campaign only to want to give again later. Gifts can be given via check at the front desk of the Norton Administration Building or by clicking the "GIVE NOW" button on this page.

Every gift is important! Participation is the key!

"May the Lord our God show His approval and make our efforts successful, yes make our efforts successful." Psalm 90:17
