WHAT IS THE ANNUAL FUND?


THE ANNUAL FUND IS CRITICAL TO GRACE CHRISTIAN ACADEMY’S FINANCIAL SECURITY PROVIDING ESSENTIAL SUPPORT FOR THE DAILY OPERATIONS OF THE SCHOOL AND FOR FINANCIAL AID.

Gifts to the Annual Fund from July 1 to June 30 each year assist in covering the gap between tuition and the cost of educating a GCA student which includes expenses such as academic programming, student activities, faculty salaries, professional development and tuition assistance. Annual Fund gifts are unrestricted and allow the school to respond to immediate needs and to make improvements that directly benefit students in the year the gift is made. The Annual Fund covers a percentage of the school’s annual operating budget. GCA is extremely grateful for the Annual Fund support from current parents, alumni, parents of alumni, grandparents, faculty and staff, Grace Houston Church and ministries, local business community and friends. 


 

WHY GIVE TO THE ANNUAL FUND?


Your gift, no matter the size, show your support for GCA and provides crucial operating funds, which directly impact the daily lives of students. Your financial investment allows GCA to fulfill its mission which is:  To prepare students for greatness within a Christ-centered, college preparatory environment that empowers students to pursue academic excellence, develop a passion for God, identify and strengthen talents, cultivate a heart for service, and influence the world through leadership.  With your assistance, GCA will continue its growth as a preeminent institution that relentlessly pursues excellence from a Biblical worldview, in which spirit-led students will be fully equipped to confidently fulfill their God-ordained purpose.

OTHER WAYS TO SUPPORT GRACE CHRISTIAN ACADEMY


ENDOWMENT

GCA’S endowment is a fund kept in perpetuity to help cover general operating costs, facility maintenance, faculty support and tuition assistance. A percentage of the endowment value is spent annually from interest and dividend earnings. A strong endowment guarantees the financial stability and future success of the school. Individuals and families may make personal donations to the GCA endowment. 

 

PLANNED GIVING

Planned giving is an important way to help support and build the endowment for the future well-being of GCA. Examples of planned gifts include naming Grace Christian Academy in your will or as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement fund. GCA established The Foundational Circle to recognize those who have included the school in their estate plans. The Foundational Circle seeks to provide a legacy of financial strength and continued excellence for GCA.
