Giving

Support SCS

Our annual fund is called The Fund for SCS, which exists to promote constant growth in every program and department at our school, so that our students can continue to discover, grow, and achieve. 

Each year we identify strategic priorities that require support from outside our operating budget. These necessary improvements help us grow, propelling us from excellent to extraordinary.

Our tuition and fees cover only our operational costs and not capital improvements. The Fund for SCS helps us grow beyond our normal operations. Your participation in the Fund for SCS makes that grown a reality.

Through the Fund for SCS, you support our students and teachers by providing additional funding in the following six areas:

  • Tuition Assistance 
  • Professional Development  and Instructional Tools
  • Security Enhancements
  • Fine Arts
  • Athletics
  • Most Needed

Support FAQ

List of 6 frequently asked questions.

  • Q: Why does the school have a program like this?

    The Fund for SCS helps us enhance educational excellence in important ways that benefit our students immediately. The Fund for SCS also allows us to limit other fundraising activities that involve the sale of products so that 100% of your gift is tax-deductible and goes to benefit SCS.
  • Q: Who should participate in The Fund for SCS?

    Everyone! We are asking parents, alumni, grandparents, community members, and anyone that has benefit from the ministry of SCS to consider supporting the eternally impacting work of Southside Christian.
  • Q: How will my gift be used?

    Gifts will be used to fund initiatives in one of the four strategic areas of improvement at SCS: security, tuition assistance, student and guest facility improvements, and professional development and instructional tools. Each gift to the Fund for SCS will be used as intended by the donor.
  • Q: What if I can’t give much?

    Each gift, no matter the size, is beneficial in helping us reach our goals and continue to take SCS from excellent to extraordinary. From $10 per month to $10 million in a lifetime, every supporter helps fulfill the mission of SCS
  • Q: When should I participate?

    The sooner you communicate your gift or commitment to the Fund for SCS, the sooner we are able to accomplish these strategic initiatives.
  • Q: How do I participate or get more information?

Current Parent

The transition to SCS this year has been completely worth the investment. I love coming home to my son telling me all he is learning. He is thriving at SCS. I know his teacher loves him. She is helping us instill Christ-like character in our son, and we see it at home.

The Fund for SCS is a tangible way to have an impact at SCS. That impact comes by donations that fund new expansion projects that are outside our normal operating budget. These expansion projects may include professional development, Fine Arts opportunities, Athletic Opportunities, Facilities improvements, or additional Tuition Assistance to serve more students. Together, with everyone doing something, we can all make significant impact on students at SCS now and in the future. I would love to share our current projects and how, together, we can help SCS excel still further. Stop by my office on campus, give me a call, or let's do coffee or lunch to discuss!
