At Life Christian Academy we are eternally grateful to all individuals, businesses, and corporations that support our school ministry with their prayerful giving. We believe that our “partnership” in our mission statement includes those who give to our cause of providing quality Christian education.
There are a number of means by which donors may support LCA and our students. Each year we provide several means by which friends of LCA may give to make a difference in the lives our students. These include our annual fund, our DREAMS auction, the Golf Classic, missions trip support, restricted gifts for designated purposes, and endowment gifts that are invested by our Life Christian Academy Education Foundation.
We thank God for His provision of people who love and support His work at Life Christian Academy. We advance as a school on the shoulders of those who give to our mission.
Where can I make a difference?
- Tuition Assistance
One in three students receive some form of tuition assistance.
We are committed to integrating technology into every child’s daily experience – computers in every classroom, standardization of desktop tools and accessible laptops. Specialized hi-tech equipment for our biology and science labs are next on our list!
- Fine Arts
Music is food for the soul and we are a school that loves music! Kindergarten through fifth grade music program, bands for beginning fifth grade through 12th grade concert level, several choirs and ensemble groups in the upper school – our students appreciate music. Our musical groups are in need of instruments, travel funds and equipment.
- Community Service Outreach and Missions
Our seniors are planning a mission trip to Mexico and are raising travel funds and money to support a ministry.
Tuition does not cover the costs of a growing, competitive athletic program. To stay competitive we need help with purchases and coaches stipends.
Life Christian Academy raises funds each year to support our students. This happens through several efforts:
- Annual Fund in November
- DREAMS Auction Family and Gala Events in March
- Life Christian Classic Golf Tournament in May
Our school believes in providing support to build a diverse student body at all school levels. Scholarships and tuition assistance are a significant part of accomplishing that goal. Every dollar that is committed to assist students is raised through the Office of Advancement.
In addition, Life Christian Academy is committed to continuous advancement of our mission. Innovative programs such as our EXEL, L.I.F.E, and Math and Science Institute are all possible because of giving support from our school families, grandparents, foundations, and our community. As God gives our leaders a vision to advance for our students, we believe He will also provide the funds through the gifts from His people.
Please contact the Office of Advancement at 253-756-2460 in order that we might serve you.
Life Christian Foundation—Securing the Future
The Life Christian Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed to provide a perpetual source of revenue that supports Life Center and Life Christian Academy. The specific purpose of the foundation is to provide funds to support scholarships, and programs through endowment investment proceeds.
The foundation accepts, manages, and invests gifts of property, securities, life insurance, bequests, cash, and other forms of contributions.
Endowment funds are designed to protect the donors fair market value of the gift and permanently appropriated to the fund. The resources are invested through our partner investment firm, Strategic Capital Assets of Gig Harbor, Washington. The asset value of each endowment fund is protected by the Life Christian Foundation Foundation policy whereby up to 5% of the asset value may be spent in a given fiscal year. This policy allows for the opportunity for the continual growth of the fund and a continued return on investment-thus extending the life of the endowment fund. Each endowment fund is established with a fund agreement between the donor and the foundation. The donor establishes the purpose of the endowment and the fund agreement establishes the criteria under which decisions are made for the use of the fund proceeds.
All donations and gifts are tax deductible. Additionally, certain gifts such as charitable remainder trusts, may qualify for the foundation to be the recipient of income or as the beneficiary of the trust, and thus provide excellent tax deferred incentives. Gifts of cash, stock, real estate, and personal property of value all qualify for tax deductions.
Capital Planning Incorporated is a partnering firm that assists families with the formation of the family legacy giving plans. This important service includes the creation of an estate plan, a planned gift, and the legal counsel to complete the process.
School programs in need of additional endowment support include:
- Student Scholarships
- Math and Science Institute
- L.I.F.E. Program
- Fine Arts
- Faculty Chair Positions
- Faculty Salary Provisions
The Life Christian Foundation Board oversees the policy and provisions for the endowment funds. The current board consists of:
