Financial support of Jackson Christian School is critical for the current and long term health and survival for future generations. Gifts are essential to bridge the gap between what we charge for tuition and the actual cost to educate a student. Becoming a donor, at whatever ability you may have, is a refreshing reminder to our students, families and staff of God’s provision and care. These gifts offer a life-changing experience for our students.

JCS is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Gifts are tax deductible and are acknowledged with a tax deductible receipt. Contact the JCS Development Office about making a difference through a gift.

Annual Fund - The Annual Fund bridges the financial gap and therefore plays an important role in annual financial health of the school. The 2019-20 Annual Fund goal is $120,000.

Financial Aid Fund - Gifts to the Financial Aid Fund makes Jackson Christian accessible to Christian families from all socio-economic backgrounds, who meet our admissions requirements. Today JCS is a reflection of the entire Christian community in and around Jackson. All aid is based on need as determined by an independent third - party processor. The 2019-20 Financial Aid Fund goal is $38,000.

Warm the Children

Our plan is to install in each classroom a unit that will heat, cool, and deliver fresh air to the individual spaces. We will do this on an individual space schedule. The individual units can be installed without significant work on a wall in many cases. As a result, we can utilize a room in the school to replace the classroom having the unit installed. With that being said, this is where we need the help of God’s people. We need to raise funds separate from tuition dollars to support this project. The approximate cost for the whole project is about $195,000. About $30,000 has already been raised and the first section completed. This section included the 4th and 5th grade rooms which had very little heat coming in. Next up are the Kindergarten and 1st grade rooms down in the opposite wing in which we need about $21,000 to complete. The goal here is to to complete these 2 rooms and continue down the hall until the entire wing is complete. Once this is complete then the boiler can be totally cut off from this section of the school. We will continue to progress room by room until the entire school has the appropriate amount of HVAC units to function without the boiler.

We will be updating our current goals as we progress and complete sections. Be sure to check out this progress on our floor plans which will be located in the lobbies at both schools.

Women Who Care™ Jackson Christian School Chapter
The concept is simple. Women who love JCS meet once each quarter and each give $100 to support a school project selected by the members. WWC meetings are a quick 30 - 45 minutes. The group considers three school projects and each member casts a vote for one project. The winning project is funded through the $100 contribution of each member.

Attendance at the meetings is not mandatory. Members who cannot attend simply send their $100 gift to the school or use Donate Online, designated for the Women Who Care project. Learn more...

Leaving a Legacy – Estate Planning

Legacy Giving
When we leave this earth we take nothing with us, however we can leave behind a legacy that reminds others of what was important to us. Leaving a gift to JCS through your estate plan can help secure the excellence and continued health of this vital ministry to children and families in Jackson. Most estate gifts are directed to JCS Endowments. Endowments will play a significant role in helping to control tuition costs while allowing the school to continuously improve and provide excellence.
