The BCS Foundation was created to provide individuals with a stewardship opportunity that helps build a long-term, stable, financial support base for the school. Donations to the Foundation are invested in a diversified and conservative investment account. Each year, a percentage of the balance of this account is given to BCS to assist in meeting its operating budget. In this way, the Foundation not only supports the day-to-day operations of BCS, but also helps build the school’s long-term fiscal stability. Thanks to our generous supporters, the Brookfield Christian School Foundation continues to grow each year:
Your Gift Makes a Difference
Because Brookfield Christian School is committed to making Christian education affordable for all families, full tuition does not completely cover the actual cost of educating a student. Earnings from gifts to the Foundation help BCS bridge this gap both now and in the future. In addition, some families desire a quality Christian education for their children, but struggle to afford full tuition. Your support of the Foundation allows us to offer tuition assistance to families who need help, so they may benefit from being part of the BCS community.
