Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How is Soaring Eagles Annual Fund money used?
A: All money raised for the Soaring Eagles Annual Fund goes into the operating budget; this means that it pays for the books in the library, the soccer balls and music stands, the salary of your favorite teacher, the paint brushes and the clay in the art room, the computer lab and computer software and much, much more.
Q: Why can’t the school pay for its operating costs with tuition and fee money?
A: Many families, for many reasons, need help in paying for the cost of a WCS education. A careful evaluation process assures that families are given tuition discounts based upon their financial need. This process allows WCS to enroll children from families of all economic levels. The Soaring Eagles Fund assures that WCS will be able to maintain its high standards in all programs while providing tuition discounts to families that qualify.
Q: Why should I contribute to the Annual Scholarship Fund?
A: Contributing to the Soaring Eagles Fund is one of the simplest and most important acts of support to help the school. Your gift, whether it is $25 or $25,000, will be important as we seek to maintain high standards of excellence in the programs we make available to families. Your support demonstrates your commitment to Christ-centered education for current students and future generations.
Q: What is the difference between annual giving and endowed giving?
A: Money from the Soaring Eagles Fund is used for annual operating expenses. Endowed gifts are invested to provide future streams of income for specific projects. The Soaring Eagles Fund helps us live. Endowments help to ensure that WCS will live into the future.
Q: How much should we give?
A: It is hoped that parents and alumni will give as generously as possible to Warsaw Christian School. Every single gift, regardless of the amount, is valued. Even if families receive financial aid, it is hoped that they will make a gift in order to join in the common mission of demonstrating community support for the school.
There are also many other school events and programs that require volunteer and financial support; participation in any or all is greatly appreciated. The Soaring Eagles Fund is the core fundraising activity that provides an immediate and effective impact upon the WCS ministry.
