What is the Annul Fund?

Why does Treasure Valley Christian School have an Annual Fund?
To provide an affordable Christian education for children, our school can no longer rely solely on tuition, congregational support and a variety of fundraisers. It must seek other avenues and resources of funding. It helps offset the difference between tuition income and the actual cost of educating each student.

What should I give to the AF?
God has given each one of us gifts, talents and abilities which are to be shared with others. Stewardship is more than occasional acts of charity and service. It is a way of life, a commitment to giving of our time, talent and financial resources in thanksgiving for all the blessings and gifts we have received. We are continuously challenged to make our financial gifts from substance, not our abundance, in proportion to the gifts we have received.
