BCS Annual Fund
You make the Briarcrest experience possible!
Your yearly gift to the Annual Fund gives our students the opportunity to reach their fullest potential academically, athletically, artistically and spiritually. Your yearly giving demonstrates your support of Christian education and the mission of our school.
We encourage you to designate your gift in one of four ways.
- Academic Fund
- Athletic Fund
- Fine Arts Fund
- Area of Greatest Need

Q. How exactly will my gift be used?
A. The Annual Fund supports our students and faculty through the school’s operating budget. Should designated contributions exceed a fund’s budgeted need, the school directs the funds to the Area of Greatest Need.
Q. May I restrict my gift to a specific program or project?
A.Yes you may restrict your gift to go toward a specific program or project. We do however encourage our donors to only designate their gifts to one of the three established funds or to the area of greatest need. This gives our board, administration, faculty and staff the flexibility to apply your donations where they can be the most impactful.
Q. Why do you ask for donations in addition to tuition?
A. Tuition and fees do not cover the true cost of a Briarcrest education. Giving to the Annual Fund is vitally important as it helps to keep Christian education as affordable as possible and improves the Briarcrest experience for all our students.
Q. How much should I give?
A. The key to stewardship giving is that the gift be made cheerfully and sacrificially. We simply ask that all our supporters make a cheerful and sacrificial gift to the important cause of Christian education. This is a different amount for everyone and all gifts of all sizes are vitally important.
Q. What is the difference in the Annual Fund and capital campaigns?
A. Annual Fund donations are given and spent annually. Capital campaigns are not conducted on a regular basis and are funds strictly used to help purchase property, construct buildings and pay for major renovations. i.e., the bricks and mortar.
Q. Can I use my credit or debit card?
A. Yes. You can give securely online with your credit or debit card.
Q. Can I set up monthly donations?
A. Yes, you can indicate that on the remittance envelope or online at “Support BCS.”
