Direct Appeals are conducted annually and address large scale needs.
- Auction – Once a year, usually the last Saturday of April, Highland Christian hosts a Live Auction. This year it will be held on Saturday, April 22, 2017. All proceeds benefit Highland Christian School.
- School Improvement Appeal – If HCS is carrying a debt from a building expansion project, we conduct a Building Fund Appeal to pay off our debt. In debt free years, the School Board identifies a specific school improvement project that needs to be completed in order to maintain the beautiful facilities and excellent educational programs we enjoy in a cost effective way. This appeal takes place in October.
- Foundation Appeal – (February) Whereas the School Board addresses “brick and mortar” issues, the Foundation raises money for the HCS Endowment Fund. Gifts to this fund are kept in perpetuity. A gift is made each year from the the Foundation to the School to offset operating expenses and thereby control tuition fees.
- Wishlist – The Wishlist is published quarterly in the School Bell and is also available to view online. These are “wished for” items that will compliment student experiences in learning.
Fundraising Events & Programs benefit student activities & opportunities.
Funding events and programs take place throughout the year and are opportunities to care for the good of HCS through everyday purchases and stewardship.
