Foundation Board

 

The Calvin Christian School Foundation

The Calvin Christian School Foundation was conceived in 1983 for the financial support and promotion of Christian Education at Calvin Christian School.  The Foundation solicits and receives, accumulates, manages, invests and disburses capital funds and properties entrusted to it.  Specifically, the Foundation seeks to encourage Calvin constituants to remember Calvin with special gifts of cash, appreciated investments, revocable gift agreements, life insurance, charitable gift annuities as well as with wills and trusts.  The earned income from the Foundation is annually given to the General Budget of the School.

When the Foundation began over 30 years ago, the board of directors was extremely active in promoting it.  Many special gifts have come in the way of cash, appreciated bonds, a land contract as well as wills and estates.  It is the desire of the Foundation to provide financial stability for the School in difficult times, provide resources for tuition reduction and provide expert management of endowment gifts so that principal is conserved and maximum income is earned.  Each year the Foundation Board sets a goal of increasing principal.  The Foundation has sponsored an annual golf outing to raise funds as well as musical programs.  The Foundation principal amount is growing and in this 103rd year of Calvin's history contributed around $177 per student to the general budget - while still in it's early stages the Foundation contributed around $5.00 per student to the general budget (as a comparison) in 1987.  This demonstrates that reductions in tuition increases can be achieved through the Foundation concept.
