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!
