Supporting Central

Our need is great, because our commitment is great.

We have an unapologetic desire to make Central Christian School available for all mission-fit families because of our commitment to and celebration of the fullness of the kingdom of God. 

Have you ever wondered...

List of 3 frequently asked questions.

  • Why make a gift to Central Christian School?

    Central's budgetary needs are not met with tuition alone. In fact, there are several pieces to Central's financial equation, and our school would look very different without God's provision. Put simply, the School depends on the generosity of individual donors to come alongside that of Central Presbyterian Church in order to make a Central education possible for our families.
  • I cannot make a large gift. Do you really need my gift?

    The answer to this question is a resounding 'Yes!' Just as diversity exists in many other areas of our school - race, socio-economics and learning style, to name a few - diversity also exists in giving. God faithfully provides through His people at Central. Few can make large gifts, but many can make smaller gifts to meet the needs of our students. In fact, nearly 90% of the gifts made to Central annually are $300 or below. So please pray about what you can do for Central, because EVERY gift counts.
  • I can't afford to make a gift to Central. What other ways can I give?

    We ask that you prayerfully reconsider your willingness to make a gift. We stand together in all it takes to educate our students, and as a vital member of our community, we humbly ask you to stand with us. You may be surprised to learn that our donor list includes individuals all along the socio-economic spectrum, even Central families currently receiving financial assistance. We seek 100% giving from Board members, faculty, parents, and grandparents. As explained above, a gift of ANY amount makes a difference for our students.

    Additionally, you can generate actual dollars for Central without a financial outlay of your own, by volunteering at Ditto. As a member school, Central provides the volunteer workforce for Ditto for four weeks throughout the school year. And each year, a portion of Ditto's profits are returned to Central to specifically support Central families in need ($65,000 in 2023).

    Another way to support Central Christian School families, again without any financial outlay, is to turn your state tax liability into an investment for the education of qualifying Central Christian School students.
