The San Antonio Christian School Annual Fund is the yearly fundraiser to generate donations that benefit all students and teachers. Unlike many other private schools, SACS operating expenses are covered completely by tuition and fees. Annual Fund gifts provide the school with needed improvements and enhancements.
Give your gift now, and together we can go above and beyond what SACS is today. Together we provide students a Christ-centered education while fostering lives of faith and service.
Since the Annual Fund was adopted in 2014, the school has consolidated most fundraisers to make this the primary donor appeal each year. There still are a few fundraising projects, but the goal is to limit the number of requests parents receive.
The Annual Fund benefits many different areas and touches all SACS students and teachers. There are so many projects, programs and purchases that require giving above and beyond what student tuition and fees cover. The Development Annual Report lists many Annual Fund expenditures each year.
You can support SACS by making a cash gift or appreciated assets. To make a gift of cash, you can make a secure online gift, mailing a check to San Antonio Christian School, Development Office, 19202 Redland Road (Building Z), San Antonio, Texas 78259; or calling the Development Office at 210-248-1636.
To make a gift of stock or other appreciated assets, please contact the Foundation and Development Officer at 210-248-1636 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Every gift makes a difference. By making a gift to the SACS Annual Fund, you make an immediate impact on the school. Gifts are used to improve student programs, provide teacher benefits and further strategic initiatives. Your generosity helps SACS provide superior academic programs, spiritual enlightenment and exceptional extracurricular activities.
Matched giving is offered by many employers. The company or corporate foundation matches all or a percentage of employee contributions to eligible organizations. SACS families should contact workplace human resources departments or corporate charitable foundations to inquire about eligible matching gift programs.
Most matching gift programs have forms for SACS to complete before or after eligible employees make donations. Once SACS donors provide matching gift documents, the Development Office follows up on obtaining the matching gift. It’s a tremendous way for SACS families to increase their donations.
Yes, Annual Fund gifts to San Antonio Christian School are tax deductible.
Annual Fund donors can designate gifts to where they are needed most or can contribute to specific areas. Because of the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, SACS is asking all donors to make undesignated gifts this year. Undesignated donations allow the SACS administration to direct funds where they are needed most. In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, undesignated funds become even more essential to address emerging school needs.
Persons wishing to make monthly Annual Fund payments may do so online by completing the requested information. Monthly credit card donations may be made in any amount for two to 12 months. Accepted credit cards are listed. A confirmation message will be sent to the email address entered on the payment page.
Donations may be made through gifts of stock or other securities. Please contact the Foundation and Development Office at 210-248-1636 or email@example.com for stock transfer instructions and to answer questions.
Gifts-in-kind help support the educational and spiritual programs of the school in thoughtful and constructive ways. They defray school costs by providing goods and services. All gifts-in-kind accepted by SACS must help meet the mission of providing students a Christ-centered education. By IRS regulations, it is the responsibility of the donor to verify the value of an in-kind gift.
Please contact the Foundation and Development Office at 210-248-1636 or at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions about your giving, need of a printed receipt, stock transfer or any other Annual Fund related information.
