DOMINION UNWRAPPED 

The 21 Day Annual Fund Blitz began Friday, March 7th!

 

Every year, a huge portion of Dominion's primary fundraising campaign is our Annual Fund drive. This campaign is held to help bridge the gap between tuition and the actual costs to produce amazing educational, extracurricular, and spiritual experiences for the students of our school.

 

Last year's Major Accomplishments:

  • Installation of our new state-of-the-art security system, which supplied us with additional cameras, access security to the front office and new signage
  • Newly renovated computer lab, including a new technology platform, addition of new servers, furniture and paint

This year's goal:   "Restore, Refresh, Revise Dominion Christian Facilities"

  • Paint Exterior of Buildings
  • New Front Entrance Landscape/Hardscape
  • Parking lot improvements (reseal, stripe, etc.)

We cannot make these things happen without your participation!   YOU can make the difference!! Will you say "YES"? Every dollar given makes a difference for each Dominion student!

 

This year YOU have a very special opportunity to help our school. Here are some of our goals:

  • 100% DCS Family Participation (Last year's participation - 60%)
  • $2,500 per day = $52,500.00 (Fund Goal)
  • 10 new alumni donors at any level of giving
  • 100% participation from faculty/staff and Board of Trustees
  • 50 new donors at a level of $500 or more! (This alone would raise $25,000)

Thank you in advance for helping us, and most importantly for sharing your children with the staff and administration of Dominion Christian! Watch our Knightly News for continual updates and progress!


Joe Bradley, Headmaster
