How Can I Help CCS?
Community Christian School is always delighted to receive donations from supporters. As an independent Christian school, CCS receives no provincial or federal funding and relies on tuition fees as well as donations from our community of supporters to meet our budget. Here are ways you can help us so that we may continue to offer an excellent academic program to students and to provide tuition assistance to some families.
DONATE DIRECTLY TO CCS BY CHEQUE
Cheques or money orders can be made payable to Community Christian School and mailed to 2681 Glen Street, Metcalfe, ON, K0A 2P0. Donations made this way will result in a tax receipt from CCS because we are a registered charity. If you want to tag your donation to tuition assistance or a special project, please indicate this on the cheque line or in a note, otherwise, we will put your donation in our general revenue.
DONATE BY CREDIT CARD VIA CHRISTIAN SCHOOL FOUNDATION
Online donations using a credit card can be made through Christian School Foundation using the link at the bottom of this page. A 3.2% processing fee will be charged to CCS when you use this method. You will receive a tax receipt for the full amount of your donation, issued by Christian School Foundation. Online gifts that are not directed to a specific fund, will be directed to the CCS Bursary Fund, which enriches the experience of all students by allowing more students to attend our school. You are also invited to consider working with the Christian School Foundation to make a planned or legacy gift, which can bless our school for generations to come.
DONATE WITH APPRECIATED SECURITIES OR PROPERTY
There are significant tax advantages if you donate items like securities or property directly to CCS through the Christian School Foundation. Contact Henry Koornneef at firstname.lastname@example.org or by call toll-free 1-877-340-9555 to learn more.
WHAT IS THE CHRISTIAN SCHOOL FOUNDATION?
Christian School Foundation works with its member Christian schools to encourage bequests and planned gifts as a source of sustainable, long-term funding for Community Christian School and many other Christian schools.
Christian School Foundation offers many ways to support our school. While donations given through the Foundation are pooled for investment purposes, contributions are not simply dumped into one big pot that is shared by all. Donors can designate their gifts to any one of a number of accounts. Every member school has, at least, a Growth Fund (endowment fund), but most also have a number of other accounts, from Bursary to Computer Technology funds, or other special projects.
Christian School Foundation also establishes and disburses funds to help schools with tuition assistance programs, professional development initiatives, and also to help schools become "Communities of Belonging" that effectively include students with special needs.

Community Christian School is delighted to partner with Christian Schools Foundation, whose goal is to lend support to the entire Christian school movement.
