Development Tuition dollars do not cover 100 percent of your child’s education. Offering the best comprehensive, college preparatory education we can drives our fundraising efforts to cover additional expenses and needs. We trust in God’s provision through the generosity of many for this additional support. To keep our community informed of these opportunities to enrich our student’s educational and co-curricular activities, the development office organizes various fundraising efforts. Our community is one that practices good stewardship and embraces the spirit of generosity. Stewardship for us is the mindful and responsible care we give to managing tuition dollars and contributions. We desire to honor God by achieving the greatest level of impact for each dollar entrusted to the school. The Bible provides a significant level of wisdom on the benefits of living a generous life. Our desire is to help donors understand the significant difference their contributions make and the joy that comes from living a life of generosity.

OUR GOALS IN FUNDRAISING •

We believe in practicing the highest standards in fundraising that reflect Biblical principals and professional ethics. “A good name is more desirable than great riches.” Proverbs 22:1

• We believe that money generously given by our constituency ultimately belongs to God; therefore, every penny should be managed and spent carefully. “Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful.” 1 Corinthians 4:2 • We believe that keeping our constituency aware of the financial needs of Charlotte Christian School is a critical component of practicing good stewardship. •

We believe that prayer is an essential element in meeting Charlotte Christian School’s needs. “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine…to him be glory.” Ephesians 3:20-21

• We believe building strong relationships with our constituency is the principal goal of all fundraising activities. •

We believe that donors should always feel that they are willingly and joyfully participating. “Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” 2 Corinthians 9:7

• We believe our donors should be respected, acknowledged and that properly expressing our gratitude to a donor is both a privilege and an obligation. 8

OPPORTUNITIES TO GIVE Annual Fund – Support to the Annual Fund touches the lives of every student. Funds raised are used to provide new curriculums and educational resources, educational technology, professional development for employees, campus improvements and resources for fine arts and athletics. Capital Campaign, Lighting The Way – Donations to this campaign have provided an addition to our upper school and many wonderful renovations. A few of the areas renovated include the nurse’s office, athletic training room, physical education locker rooms, team locker rooms, and weight training facility. The Guy Family Gymnasium was also fully renovated providing a quality facility for lower school physical education classes, team practices, and competitions. In October 2012 The Warner Field House opened adjacent to the Guy Gymnasium., providing a multipurpose room for wrestling, cheerleading, and various other school activities; a locker room for football, lacrosse, and wrestling; a classroom, along with new athletic offices and provide public restrooms. This phase 4 project also expanded the Guy Gymnasium. The next phase of the campaign will provide a classroom facility for the lower and middle school students. Endowment – Gifts to the endowment perpetuate the mission of the school by providing resources to sustain facilities, tuition assistance and professional development for employees. The development office organizes the following activities: • Annual Fund Campaign • New Family Tailgate • Men’s Fellowship Breakfasts • Annual Homecoming Reception • Special Alumni Events • Grandparents’ Day • Golf Challenge
