A mix of joy and sorrow filled our campus the last 2017 day of school, last Friday June 9.
A Sound Investment
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Your giving is a sound investment in the lives of students at Santiago Christian School. Any gift of any size supports our every day mission of Shaping the Lives of those who will Shape the Nation.
Who supports SCS?
Since 1967, the prayerful participation and service of many has enabled quality Christian education at SCS. Our faithful supporters include past teachers, alumni, parents, grandparents, and friends who believe that SCS's mission is rooted in an eternal hope. This hope gives true purpose and true partnership.
Why support SCS?
A visit to campus will show you why. Everywhere you look there are bright, curious students exploring the world, discovering new talents, asking intelligent questions, learning to think critically, growing as leaders, and sharpening their global perspective.
SCS cultivates leaders who graduate prepared for college and a life of service. Why support SCS? Because a gift to SCS produces a return for many years in the future. All day every day, we educate students to reflect Jesus in character, wisdom, and influence. Our main priority is to produce graduates who are personas íntegras equipped to impact the world.
SCS is blessed with parents who pay their tuition on time and so is debt-free. However, tuition does not cover the cost of many capital improvements. SCS does not have an endowment, a surplus of money from which to draw, and it does not receive American or Dominican government support. SCS facility improvements are largely dependent upon the generosity of its supporters.
How can I give to SCS?
First, you can give your prayers. At SCS, we acknowledge that everything we have belongs to God. Our resources – including our facilities and staff - are instruments in God's hand to be used for holy purposes in the lives of our students. Pray that we never forget that.
There are several ways to invest in SCS. Every gift, small or large, is important.
Cash This is the most common way of supporting SCS. Cash gifts can be in the form of an outright gift or a pledge. Gifts from the US are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
Program Boosters Parents can support their student's special interests by designating a gift to a favorite program. Gifts to programs like Athletics, the Spring Musical, or Model United Nations help provide the next level of quality resources and equipment to make these programs the very best they can be.
Non-Cash Gifts You can be creative. Non-cash gifts can be made in the form of real estate, in-kind donations of goods or services from your business, frequent flier miles for expatriate teachers, securities, or retirement plan assets.
Memorial Donations When you give a gift as a memorial in someone's honor, SCS is privileged to send an acknowledgment to the person's family on your behalf. If you make a memorial gift in the form of a piece of art, a park bench, or a tree to beautify the campus, a memorial plaque will be displayed on the gift as a lasting tribute.
Bequests A bequest can be distributed from your estate. This can be a fixed amount or a percentage of your total estate. A bequest left to SCS leaves a legacy for future generations.
