Giving at KCC
Unlike a public institution or a school connected to a specific church or denomination, Kansas City Christian thrives as the result of the gracious gifts given by our families and friends of the school. Each year, we are blessed with financial giving that accounts for 12% of our overall budget, making up the gap that exists between the tuition we receive and the goals that we have for our academic and social platforms as we strive toward our mission of partnering with Christian families in training their children in a Christian worldview that allows them to transform the culture in which they live.
We greatly appreciate individual gifts of any amount from those who would like to join us in our vision for our students. A variety of gifting options are available to anyone who is interested including one time or occasional gifting by cash, check, or credit card, securities (stocks, bonds, or mutual funds), or legacy gifts for those interested in larger gift amounts.
Additionally, our community of dedicated parents provides a series of unique, school wide events designed to promote relationships while benefiting the school each year. We would invite you join us for one of these opportunities or to contact our Head of School if you would like to discuss a specific gift.
Yearly Community Giving Opportunities:
KCC hosts two all-school fundraisers an Auction in the fall and a gala in the spring.
The auction is held in November, generally the Friday before Thanksgiving. It is a wonderful fun-filled evening of community and fellowship both with our school families and guests invited to attend. The evening usually consists of a silent auction, a dinner and then a live auction.
Part of the Live Auction is our Fund-a-Need. This is usually a 2-part need: a school specific need and our Scholarship fund. Last year we raised $35,000 for a new transit van and over $75,000 for our Scholarship fund.
This year we hope you join us on November 18, 2016 for An Evening in the Village: Opening Doors to Legacy
. Together, we’ll celebrate what God has done and anticipate what God will do. The event will be elegant in style and powerful in purpose...an experience you won’t want to miss!
Our guiding scripture for the auction is Revelation 3:8, “Behold, I have put before you an open door which no one can shut...
” This verse forms the foundation of our theme, which is rich with significance and meaning this year.
