Giving to LCS
Your gift to Lynden Christian School makes a difference to every student and teacher in our school community, and helps families bridge the gap between what they pay in tuition and the true cost of a Christian education. Your donations, prayers, and time spent volunteering allow us to offer the highest quality programs, while also placing tuition levels within reach to more families and students here in Whatcom County.
Fund A School Bus
One of our goals for the auction was to raise enough money for two new school buses, and we raised $83,200 toward that goal. While we are humbled at the great generosity of our community, we realize not everyone was able to attend the auction. There may still be people who have a heart to give, and here is a chance to really make a difference by retiring our 30-year old buses and replacing them with safer, more economical models. Each new bus costs approximately $70,000.
LCS Endowment Fund
The Lynden Christian School Endowment Fund exists to help provide Christian education for children and young people for generations to come. Without the help of the Endowment Fund, many parents could not afford Christian education. The earnings of the Endowment Fund are donated to the General Opperating Fund of Lynden Christian there by reducing tuition costs of all Lynden Christian families. Lynden Christian’s Endowment Fund promotes, accepts, and manages gifts of money, property, securities, bequests, life insurance and other forms of contribution for the support of the Lynden Christian Schools. By wise estate planning, all of us can help leave a Christian education legacy for future generations.
The Lynden Christian School Endowment Fund is a Lynden, Washington, tax-exempt charity (IRS TIN 20-2513206) registered under the Charitable Solicitation Act with the Washington Secretary of State; donors may obtain additional financial disclosure information from that office by telephone at (800) 332-4483 or online at www.secstate.wa.gov/charities.
If you who wish to honor departed family and friends, please consider making a memorial gift to Lynden Christian School’s Endowment Fund. The family of those honored by such gifts will be notified of your gift; however, the amount of the gift is kept confidential.
Alumni Connection Association
Alumni are very important to the future of Lynden Christian Schools as they provide the broad base of prayer and financial support. We are proud of our graduates as they are active Kingdom workers in their homes, churches, communities and occupations.
Your donation enables former students to stay connected with Lynden Christian and one another. Our Alumni Coordinator maintains the alumni database, assists with reunion planning and special events, maintains the website and shares alumni news.
Is music, art, science, athletics or technology close to your heart? Consider designating a gift to one of Lynden Christian School’s outstanding curricular and extra-curricular programs.
Volunteers from Lynden Christian’s Recycle Center travel to businesses in Whatcom County to pick up cardboard for recycling. Our volunteers are mostly grandfathers, and great-grandfathers, to children currently attending Lynden Christian Schools, and take great pride in being a part of the schools recycling efforts. We currently provide this service free of charge; however, monetary donations are very much appreciated as it helps to cover fuel costs and truck maintenance.
