Throughout our 74 years, Alameda Christian School has been providing a quality Christian education. We rely on the generous donations and gifts from our community to make this happen because tuition does not cover the actual cost of educating each student.
Alameda Christian School is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization which means all gifts are tax deductible. There are many ways to support ACS. Here are a few:
You can make a donation online through PayPal. It’s quick, easy and secure!
Annual Fund Drive
Every November we provide our community and supporters the opportunity to give to the Annual Fund Drive. We need the generous support of our donors to bridge the gap between tuition and the cost of education. You can donate anytime online by clicking the Donate button on the right to give using your PayPal account.
One of our major fund raisers is our Walk-a-Thon held in October. Students request donations and pledges from friends and family members to help raise money for the school. Pledges can also be paid through PayPal.
Silent Auction Fundraiser
Every spring we hold our Silent Auction Fundraiser. Your donation of time at a vacation home, tickets to a sporting event or a craft or hobby item are welcome. This is a wonderful time of fun and fellowship while raising funds for ACS.
Other on-going ways to help raise funds for ACS at no additional cost to you:
