The Tuition Grant Fund (TGF) exists to provide tuition assistance to families who demonstrate a financial need–which is approximately 30% of the students attending Holland Christian Schools each year. Therefore the Tuition Grant Fund has made Christian education available to many families who desire such a Christ-centered education for their children, while also increasing the economic diversity of our student body since the financial barrier for parents has been reduced. Each year approximately $1,000,000 in financial support is awarded in tuition assistance.
It’s a fund that keeps giving out, so it also needs to be continually added to. Last year more than 1,400 people, churches and companies financially supported the Tuition Grant Fund. To reach our $1,000,000 goal this year, we kindly request parents, grandparents, alumni, and friends of Holland Christian Schools to prayerfully consider a donation to this fund, as well as to participate in any of the quality events below. For more information about the Tuition Grant Fund, please contact our Advancement Department at email@example.com or (616) 820-2805.
But we also want to say thank you. We as a school say a huge thank you to all who support the TGF, because we get to teach and love kids we wouldn’t otherwise know. Our school community is better for it. And the families who receive tuition aid through the TGF are also hugely grateful for the chance to attend Holland Christian, when they otherwise would not be able to without it. A few families had the chance to say thanks specifically to TGF donors, and we had our HCS staff read their comments:

Living Stones Lecture Series Virtual Event
Last April we held our first ever Living Stones Lecture Series Virtual Event.

We are eager to hear from speaker Chap Clark, author of Sticky Faith and Adoptive Church, about the importance of spiritual influences in order to make one’s faith “stick.” Lastly, we will wrap up our evening by highlighting several individuals within our own community and hearing of their personal experiences of living stones in their own lives. Event Kits are $75 and include Kilwins Chocolates for two, a bottle of wine, Chap Clark’s book Sticky Faith, and event materials. Corporate sponsorships are $1500 and include eight event kits and advertisement on our virtual platform. Register here or contact Michelle Schaap at firstname.lastname@example.org.
