Fairview Students Spruce Up

A small volunteer group, consisting of all Fairview students and alum, came to Fairview School on Wednesday August 17th to spruce up the entry ways of the school in preparation of the new school year. While not experts in the art of landscaping, these willing volunteers, clipped, raked and composted until completion. A quick break to visit with mascot Gibbs and with former teacher Mrs T were the only distractions to this otherwise productive team.

Following the mornings work, a trip to Maple Leaf Park to play in the GIANT sprinkler (to cool off, of course), a little soccer, and refuel on hot dogs, chips, and similar snacks. All participants had a blast and intend to participate in other outreach efforts in our community.

Fairview Selected for ACSI Grant to Start Sustainable Funding Campaign

FCS has received a $12,000 grant from ACSI (Association of Christian Schools International) to send a group of 7 people to be trained by Benevon to create a sustainable funding campaign for the school!

What does this mean for Fairview? It begins the process of fulfilling a 20 year dream started back when this school building was first purchased, to create a Foundation that would aid the budget of the school, cover building renovation projects, and provide scholarships to make the cost of a private education in Seattle affordable to any that desired it.

Benevon is a training group, started here in Seattle, that coaches non-profit organizations in effectively implementing major fundraising efforts. We do this by creating close, ongoing relationships with people who are interested in, and might be willing to invest in, the mission that Fairview has of educating and empowering children in heart, mind, and soul. We are really looking forward to the benefits that can be realized by being good at letting people know about Fairview and sharing our Kingdom mission with them.

We already have 5 committed team members. If you are interested in joining the team on this exciting venture, would like to be included on the funding committee e-mail list, or have questions to know more about what’s going on, please e-mail kevint@fcsseattle.org.

As always, keep praying for the school and the great work we’re doing here together to nurture our children and further God’s Kingdom!
