THE WORK OF THE LORD
We invite you to join us in this work of the Lord called Portland Christian School, and in so doing, to make an eternal difference in the lives of generations of students! Whether you make a one-time gift or pledge a specific amount per month for the next three years or more, every dollar will be used to educate students in the Truth for the next century or until our Lord returns
God has used generations of faithful individuals who gave regularly to financially sustain the ministry of Portland Christian School. These donors have helped bridge the $1,300 gap between what it costs to educate a student and what PCS receives in non-gift income each year. In doing so they also made it possible for the 25% of our students who are granted tuition assistance to receive this Christ-centered education. Most of our regular donors gave $20 to $100 a month, but together their impact was great.
Today a new generation is needed who will step up to sustain and grow the ministry through regular giving. PCS is in its 100th year, join us in leaving a rich legacy for the next generation by becoming a Legacy 2024 monthly or quarterly donor. Signing up is simple and fast.
5 REASONS TO GIVE
AUTOMATED RECURRING DONATIONS
• Automatic recurring monthly or quarterly donations provide a reliable income stream that helps PCS with planning and decreases cash-flow problems
• Research shows that when a person signs up for regular automated giving, they tend to give 10% – 25% more per year than they did previously.
• Research also shows that automated monthly donors are usually the most committed, with a retention rate of over 90% annually.
• Automatic giving is convenient for you and helps limit mailing and administrative costs.
• A little bit on a regular basis over a long period of time = major impact!
The partners who share in the ministry of Portland Christian School have come from over 90 years of alumni and friends who love and believe in God’s ministry at PCS. Gifts from these partners vary from ten dollars a month to thousands of dollars per year. The faithfulness of the school’s donors has sustained the school since 1924. What better way to aid in building the Kingdom than to invest in a child?
Portland Christian School is committed to honoring our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the Creator of all things, with a learning environment that is based on biblical principles and is intellectually stimulating. Partnering with PCS is an investment in discipleship, as well as education, “so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work”. (II Timothy 3:17, NIV)
