Annual Fund

The Annual Fund is our annual giving campaign that runs in conjunction with our fiscal year July 1st – June 30th. The Annual Fund provides the additional funds needed to cover costs of operating the school. Lighthouse Christian Academy relies on the generous support and involvement of every member of our school community to reach our LCA goal of $120,000. This fund is critical for the short- and long-term funding strategies of Lighthouse Christian Academy.
 
While tuition revenues account for nearly 90% of our budgeted income, those dollars aren’t enough to cover the cost of operating our school. Gifts to the Annual Fund support our academic, fine arts, and athletic programs, as well as enable us to provide tuition assistance to families in need. Your gift will help support our mission: to partner with Christian parents to provide a biblically integrated and academically excellent education to develop each child’s Christ-like character, intellectual ability and physical health to the glory of God.

All Annual Fund gifts to LCA are tax-deductible based on the school’s 501(c)(3) charitable status.
