Supporting the Norfolk Christian Mission
Norfolk Christian was built and continues to flourish through the generosity of many who support our mission to equip students spiritually, intellectually, and physically. When you make a gift to Norfolk Christian Schools, you help our students grow in truth and prepare them to impact the world for God’s Kingdom, wherever He leads them. Below are the many ways you can participate in shaping the futures of these young Ambassadors for Christ. Thank you for partnering with us!
The Annual Fund
The Annual Fund is Norfolk Christian’s most important funding source. While tuition revenue covers most of our operating expenses, the Annual Fund supplies the remaining finances needed to enrich learning environments, support faculty and staff, and provide resources for classrooms and programs across our three campuses. Gifts are put to immediate use, with the primary focuses being supplemental classroom materials, athletic equipment, technology, fine arts resources, off-campus student activities, and ongoing professional development for our outstanding faculty.
Capital Building and Projects
Because tuition money is strictly held for operating expenses, expenses for capital items, such as facilities enhancements, buses, computer network infrastructure and new building projects are all completed through donations towards the capital fund. Major projects require capital campaigns, three of which have been completed since the 1990s, totaling over $25 million.
Norfolk Christian Scholarships
A gift to one of our seven scholarships provides tuition assistance towards NCS tuition for a high school student or college tuition for a graduating senior or graduate.
Concerned that you don’t have the understanding or needed expertise? Norfolk Christian partners with Barnabas Foundation to offer our donors, at no expense to them, confidential estate planning consultation with Christian attorneys who view giving from an eternal and biblical perspective.
Virginia Tax Credit Program
In partnership with a local foundation, any person or business can significantly reduce their Virginia tax liability with a 65% tax credit, while at the same time funding scholarships for students who qualify for need-based assistance.
If you are at least 70 ½ years old, you can give up to $100,000 from your IRA (or $200,000 for couples) to Norfolk Christian and receive significant tax benefits in return.
If you have appreciated stock or other securities you’ve owned for at least a year, you can receive a double tax benefit by donating this stock to Norfolk Christian.
