The Warrior Fund
Valley Christian Schools employs the Independent School Financial Model similar to many of our Bay Area private school counterparts. This model understands that tuition dollars alone cannot support the breadth and quality of curriculum, activities, and facilities in the Bay Area’s stellar private schools.
Gifts to the WARRIOR FUND are used during the year in which they are received. Broad support of the WARRIOR FUND is the most crucial part of VCS’ fundraising initiatives, and these gifts have the most direct and immediate impact on the school.
Widespread participation in the WARRIOR FUND is vital to Valley Christian Schools’ success. Gifts to the WARRIOR FUND are used to increase the general operating budget and ensure the most pressing needs of Valley Christian Schools are met. The Executive Leadership Team is committed to being good stewards of your generous contributions by providing excellent opportunities throughout our multifaceted campuses and programs.
It is the WARRIOR FUND that ensures the Quest for Excellence through the following:
Offers our students unique and challenging academic opportunities to every grade level
Celebrates the diverse and vibrant artistic experiences for our students in multiple disciplines
Provides high-caliber athletic programs enabling students to compete and succeed at the highest levels
Ensures socio-economic diversity among our student body by making tuition affordable to families or students with special circumstances
Teachers & Support Staff
Offers competitive salaries for faculty to ensure that our students are being taught by top-notch educators
Annually, we strive to have all of our current families participate in the WARRIOR FUND. EVERY penny makes a difference! No gift is too small. No gift is too big. We ask every family to join our WARRIOR CLUB community in support of our students. Most importantly, we want to build a community of support that encourages gifts of time, talent, and treasure. We all have something to give and can make an impact. Please consider how you can support our students with your financial support, talents, and time this year. Achieving 100% participation is our goal, as it enables Valley Christian Schools to seek additional funding from foundations and alumni via grants and other opportunities in which participation by current families is a key factor for selection.
We invite you to support Valley’s current and future impact.
We look forward to partnering with you!
