Many alumni and parents of alumni feel their time at Bellevue Christian School had an important influence in their lives and in an effort to provide that same opportunity for others, they create an endowment. The Bellevue Christian School “Family of Funds” includes over a dozen named endowments listed below. Most funds provide valuable tuition assistance for students; others support school programs such as performing arts or training/professional development for faculty and staff.

A strong endowment provides Bellevue Christian School with the opportunity to grow and innovate in the future. One of our top priorities is to increase the endowment to ensure our economic vitality. Endowed funds can be established with a gift of $25,000 or more. Endowment gifts are invested to keep the principal intact and distribute a portion of the return on investment to its intended purpose.

Donors may contribute to an existing endowment or they can establish a new endowment.
