Support JCS

Donate Online     Monthly Reoccurring Gift     Current Project

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 2014-15 Annual Fund goal is $157,000.

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 2014-15 Financial Aid Fund goal is $70,000.

Giving Together

Coming together with others to reach a goal or fund a project is the purpose of 100 Women Who Care and the JCS Circle of Friends. Both are making a huge difference in the lives of our student. Consider joining one of these groups.

100 Women Who Care

100 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. 100 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 100 Women Who Care project. Learn more...

JCS Circle of Friends

JCS Circle of Friends
The JCS Circle of Friends are friends who make a commitment to give a minimum of $1,000 per year, each year for 5 years. Circle of Friends gifts support the Annual Fund, meaning they support the general operating budget of the school. The annual fund is critical of the health of the school as it bridges the gap between what we charge for tuition and the true cost of a JCS education. Email us for more information.

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. Contact the JCS Development Office.
