Fundraisers & Donations
Berean Academy is not state funded.
We rely on tuition from our families and donations from our supporters.
We have several areas of need that require donations.
All gifts to these funds are tax-deductible.
FAMILY EDUCATION GRANT
The Family Education Grant is a donation-funded program that provides tuition assistance based on financial need. Families who apply can qualify to receive a grant equaling 5%-55% of their tuition. Our Multiple Student Discount is also funded through the FEG. Therefore, all families who have more than one student attending Berean benefit from the FEG! Your tax-deductible donation is vital to the ongoing ministry of Berean Academy.
The FEG for the 2018-19 school year is almost fully funded!
The Kingdom Building Campaign is a three phase building plan to address safety and physical needs on our growing campus. Phase One will directly impact our campus by improving safety, traffic flow, our offices and cafeteria.
Phase One Funding
Occasionally we have families who fall into severe financial struggles because of medical issues or job loss. Donations to the Benevolence Fund allows us to be the hands and feet of Christ and help these families get through rough times.
Throughout the year we have
special events to raise funds for specific areas of need.
Did you know that not only is the Carnival a great time for families but that it benefits our elementary students in some key ways? Monies raised from the Carnival support field trips, technology, manipulative materials for math and science in addition to supplies for the classroom. Last year we were able to split the cost of a new disc golf set with the Berean Booster Club. As the carnival draws near, we hope to be able to add park benches to the playground and to complete repairs on our current equipment with this year’s funds.
PRAISE & CELEBRATION BANQUET
The P&C Banquet is one of the largest gatherings we host on our campus and is the largest fundraiser of Berean Academy. The primary purpose of the P&C Banquet is to raise funds for the FEG program explained above. Each year approximately 600 guests come to our campus and enjoy a delicious meal catered by our food service department, musical numbers from our students, and a noted speaker.
