Ada Christian School Education Foundation

In 1989, a group of parents developed a plan to ensure the future of Ada Christian School by creating the Ada Christian School Education Foundation. The purpose was to build an endowment fund from which earnings could be used to support Ada Christian School by reducing the cost of tuition for all families, providing need-based financial aid, underwriting important academic programs, and sustaining facility maintenance.

Each year, we hold our Annual Dinner and the proceeds go directly to the Ada Christian School Education Foundation. Other commitments in the form of bequests and planned gifts provide significant support for the Foundation’s advancement.

Foundation Board of Directors

The Education Foundation Board of Directors meet regularly to assess the current state of the endowment and to plan for the future. It is our honor to dutifully serve the ACS community by responsibly managing donated funds to fulfil the school’s mission.

Each year, we host an Annual fundraising event and the proceeds go to the Ada Christian School endowment fund. Each year, the Education Foundation gives investment income directly to the school, which covers over 10% of its annual budget. Other commitments in the form of bequests and planned gifts provide significant support for the Foundation’s advancement.
