Cornerstone Fund Giving Week 2022
What is the Cornerstone Fund?
The Cornerstone Fund is a yearly fundraising initiative that 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 17 - 23, 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 90% participation. The second is to meet a dollar amount of $130,000.
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.
