One generation will commend your works to another;
they will tell of your mighty acts. - Psalm 145:4

How you can help
Give to the Annual Fund
The ACS Annual Fund, Ada Christian School’s annual giving program, is our top fundraising priority. When you give a gift to the ACS Annual Fund, you make an immediate impact to the students, faculty, and vibrant educational programs that distinguish our school. Your gift signals your confidence in our mission to equip students for service in God’s world by integrating academic excellence with a distinctly Christian perspective.

Contribute to the Endowment Fund
The ACS Education Foundation proudly manages an endowment fund that takes in contributions of money or other assets and uses the resulting investment income to advance the mission of ACS. Over the years, the endowment has grown to over $10 million. Each year, the Education Foundation is able to provide a gift to the school that covers more than 10% of the annual budget.
For parents, the benefit of a robust endowment comes in the form of enhancing a program or offsetting operating costs. In other words, it supports affordability without sacrificing the quality of your student’s ACS education.
For donors, an endowment gift creates a long-term and sustained benefit to programs and priorities at ACS that are most significant to you. You might add to an endowment fund with one or more gifts or plan a legacy gift through your will or trust.
For ACS, an endowment is important to protecting and perpetuating our commitment to Christ-centered education. Investment income can provide stability and relieve pressure as the economy changes.
