Annual Fund & Tuition Assistance

At Tree of Life Christian Schools we provide our students opportunities to learn and grown in the classroom, in athletics, in the arts, and in services to others. We hire quality and godly teachers and administrators to help our students grow in the Lord and mature in grace. Tuition cannot cover the cost of all that we do here at Tree of Life.

The Annual Fund, therefore, is to provide support for educational enhancement, professional development, teachers’ salaries and benefits, unforeseen expenses and tuition assistance for families who qualify. The Annual Fund provides over $100,000 of tuition assistance annually.

TOLCS faculty and staff believe in the school's mission so strongly that 70% go beyond their service in the classroom and contribute to the Annual Fund every year. The total giving by faculty and staff has generally exceeded $60,000 annually.

This year's annual fund goal is $250,000

Capital Giving

With any building, there will be times for a capital campaign to add or improve facilities.

Evergreen Evening

Tree of Life Christian Schools’ fall kick off for the Annual Fund takes place at Evergreen Evening. Historically, it has been held the first Friday in November. Light appetizers and desserts are beautifully offered during a silent auction. It is an evening of fun, fellowship, and worship. Our students from various grades provide musical entertainment for the evening. Dr. Marrah or guest speakers provide an inspirational message.
