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.
COVD-19 Tuition Assistance Fund
It’s in times like these that the Lynden Christian community has always come together to support each other. We are asking for that support now. With families out of work, it has become difficult or impossible for them to continue to pay tuition. Currently, twenty-three families have asked for some level of tuition relief. That number may grow.
Can you help? The average monthly tuition is $1,034 per family. Our goal is to have enough cash in the tuition assistance account to assist every family who asks for help. With your contribution, we can enable families to bridge the gap between what they are able to pay and what we need in order to sustain the school.
Thank you for considering this. Just as the strategy of social distancing requires that all of us participate to be effective against the virus, so it will take all of us working together to meet the needs of our school community. And more than this, we will be stronger for it. This is God’s blessing in all this: as we come together as a community to support each other and our students, we renew our life together in faith and make Lynden Christian stronger.
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.
