Your gifts to the SFC Annual Giving Program directly impact our kids, our school and our world. Your generosity provides funding for life-changing mission trips, cutting-edge classroom technology, accessibility through financial aid, and the best professional development for our faculty. It also allows us to expand our athletic program, increase our STEAM curriculum, and make enhancements to the safety and security of our campus. Will you help us make a difference?
Thank you to the many people who participated in this year’s online auction. The funds raised benefit the Families Helping Families fund. Each year our community gathers together for an annual themed celebration and live auction. Stay tuned for the announcement of the 2020-21 theme.
Frequently asked questions on giving:
The SFC Annual Giving program is the vehicle in which we generate much-needed funds to enrich the student experience at our school. Through our families’ and friends’ generosity, the money raised each year has an immediate impact on our students both in and outside the classroom. Typically, we do not use annual funds for capital improvements or endowment – these funds are raised through other efforts.
A donation to SFC is an eternal investment in our kids, our school, and our world. Your gifts allow us to expand and enrich student opportunities and experiences that would not exist on tuition alone. Annual Giving impacts students academic and spiritual life by providing the best practices in teaching, mission trip offerings, technology upgrades, enhanced student safety & security, athletic improvements, cutting-edge programs such as STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math), and offers access to our school through financial aid. Your gift makes a difference!
We encourage everyone to be a part of SFC’s Annual Giving Days in October. SFC’s fiscal year runs through June 30; however, we can apply the dollars raised immediately to the current school year if donations are made by December 31. Of course, your gift is welcome at any time!
Yes, you always have the option to designate with a gift of $500 or more. In most cases, we prefer to receive undesignated gifts so that our school leadership can direct the funds to where they’re most needed.
We have hundreds of contributors who give generously every year! Additional giving comes from grandparents, alumni, alumni parents, and corporate matching gift programs.
We ask that each donor prayerfully consider the amount to give for their family. We do not have a designated amount for giving–every gift is appreciated and matters, no matter the amount.
No. The Annual Giving program is separate from the auction in the spring. Both raise money for the school but are distinct philanthropic efforts.
Yes. Our goal is for every family to participate in our Annual Giving program. It doesn’t matter how much you donate–the important thing is that we support SFC together as a community.
Yes. Many employers will match your gift to SFC. Check directly with your employer. Corporate matching doubles your gift and thus doubles its impact on SFC.
All gifts are greatly appreciated! Occasionally we recognize donors alphabetically, by name only, in SFC publications. Of course, we respect those wishing to give anonymously and will honor that wish upon request.
