Why do we have the Westside Legacy Fund?
Westside Christian High School strives to keep our tuition affordable for all students while maintaining a superior all-around program. Therefore, we work hard to find other sources of funding so we can charge tuition that is less than the true cost of education. We also offer financial assistance to those who qualify.
The Westside Legacy Fund is a gift to the school from Westside families. These tax-deductible* donations make it possible for us to maintain a top-notch all-around program.
Why should I participate?
You can see in the graphic below that this past year approximately 15% per student was spent to support Westside programs above and beyond that covered by tuition, demonstrating that our community and outside foundations fully support our vision and mission. Even at that, there remains a 5% gap. That's why the Westside Legacy Fund is so important.
How much should I give?
We appreciate that every family has a different financial situation and ask that you prayerfully consider how you wish to support Westside this year. The amount needed per student to meet our budget is $600.
As in previous years, if you are not able to give a gift above tuition, we ask that you support our fundraising effort by asking others to support our mission through charitable contributions to the school. We will continue to support families who wish to secure pledges from their personal contacts and provide pledge forms for students to use.
How can I give a gift?
Donations may be made as a one-time gift, or may be spread out into six monthly installments between July and December. If you'd like to give monthly, you may want to consider using ACH Withdrawal (automatic bank withdrawals).
My company provides matching gifts. Can I direct this to Westside as well?
Please do! Westside is a 501( c )(3) organization and will benefit twice from your generosity with a matching gift from your employer. You will need to fill out your company's matching gift donation form and send it to us. Matching gift programs are a wonderful way to double your giving.
