Cornerstone Fund Giving Week
What is the Cornerstone Fund?
The Cornerstone Fund is a yearly fundraising initiative which truly touches every member of the Cornerstone Christian Academy community. Through the support of the Cornerstone Fund, we are able to enrich learning in ways that tuition alone cannot provide - supporting innovative learning, early curriculum adoptions, and top-notch teaching teams. The Cornerstone Fund plays a significant role in keeping Cornerstone Christian Academy at the forefront of education.
Why do we need the Cornerstone Fund?
Your gift to the Cornerstone Fund is the most important source of unrestricted support to our school and has a direct impact on providing your child with a superior educational experience. When you choose to give annually to the Cornerstone Fund, you benefit from making a tax-deductible gift while enabling CCA to keep lower tuition rates. By keeping tuition accessible to the community, CCA can attract families who share in the common goal of providing Skills for Life and Faith for Eternity.
What is CCA Giving Week?
During the week of October 12 - 16, CCA will host a Cornerstone Fund Giving Week. A week-long giving initiative dedicated to giving, gratitude, and community. We have two goals. The first goal is to have 100% participation. The second is to meet a dollar amount of $115,000.
We ask that you prayerfully consider what is meaningful to you. Whether $25 or $25,000, every gift makes an impact on Skills for Life and Faith for Eternity. Stand alongside Cornerstone Christian Academy families, grandparents, friends, alumni, Board of Trustees, and faculty and staff.
Let’s get LOUD and ROAR for CCA! #wearecca

All pledge payments are due by June 30, 2020. If you would like your name listed a certain way in the Annual Report, please let us know.
What is the 110% Club?
CCA staff gives 110% of themselves every day. We challenge our donors to match this same commitment by increasing their last contribution by 10%. Membership in the 110% club is one important way to guarantee sustained growth of the Cornerstone Fund.
What is the Leadership Circle?
The Leadership Circle recognizes donors who contribute $2,500 or more to the Cornerstone Fund.
What is the Gold Club?
CCA is fortunate to have a faithful base of supporters who have helped sustain the Annual Fund over the years. Consistent giving of 5 years and longer is so important that CCA is establishing the “Gold Club” to honor its most loyal Cornerstone Fund donors.
