Highland Christian School is blessed to have a vibrant, growing Foundation. Our Foundation bridges the gap between short term cash gifts and long term financial needs. To best understand the benefit of our Foundation Fund, it helps to understand the relationship between the school’s budget, constituent gifts and long term planning.
The Annual Budget of Highland Christian School accounts for our operating expenses. These expenses include things like salaries, benefits, curriculum and utilities. Constituent gifts fund projects and needs that fall outside of the annual budget like building projects, capital improvements and special needs such as tuition assistance and scholarships. Gifts to the Foundation are kept in perpetuity, meaning we do not spend principal gifts. Principal gifts are invested and an annual gift is given to the school out of earned income.
The Highland Christian School Foundation provides a variety of opportunities for parents, grandparents, alumni and friends of Highland Christian School. In addition to educational resources and professional planned gift services (free of charge through our affiliation with the Barnabas Foundation), the HCS Foundation provides the means for long term support of Christian education.
