Believe That You Can Make a Difference
Through your connection to Santiam Christian, we believe you have already made a difference. In order to fulfill our mission and vision, we rely on God working through your generous giving to help us meet our needs. Your gifts enable SC to provide a Christ-centered education to the Mid-Willamette Valley, a service our communities desperately need. No matter the size of your gift, believe that you have made a difference through giving.
Many of you are drawn to our scholarship program, enabling education at Santiam Christian to be more accessible for families. In recent years, this need has grown dramatically, especially with single parents and grandparents raising grandchildren. What we have heard consistently from these families is that SC provides the adults with the community and support system they need to navigate these difficult situations. If you feel drawn to give to our scholarship program please know that you will bless a family in need.
Others of you choose to give through designated gifts, where you combine your passion with a project that needs to be done on campus to bless us and others. This may mean a donor with a heart for healthier students helping by improving our weight room. Or a donor who supports the barbeque ministry after football games. These gifts impact our school families and the communities we are a part of as evidenced by a message from a competitor’s parent , “SCHS parents, players, community: thank you so much for your hospitality, grace, prayers, and for hosting a beautiful fall football game last night. Your kindness did not go unnoticed. Feeding a team of hungry players after an intense game was the cherry on top of your graciousness.” If you are interested in accomplishing a specific project on campus please contact us to discuss possibilities.
You may choose to give to the general fund at Santiam Christian, knowing that we need your gift to aid in the operation of the school. Tuition covers only about 85% of the costs to attend school here, with the rest of our expenses being paid for through donations. This giving may not be as exciting as the rest, but is absolutely essential for our continued operation. Our biggest need is to fill this gap.
Believe that you can make a difference through your year-end gift to Santiam Christian in one of these three areas. We rely on you and your generosity to meet our needs. I trust that God will bless you and your family this Christmas season as we celebrate the greatest gift of all.
Wishing You a Very Merry Christmas!
