With roots grown through God’s love, Timothy Christian School (TCS) has kept strong for 50 years in Williamsburg. Grounded in its belief that every child deserves an education rooted in God’s word, TCS is launching its Spring Drive campaign to raise $50,000 – $1000 for every year of its 50 years of operation.
Following 50 years of Transforming Lives – Building Up Faith, the board has developed a vision for TCS that it will remain an institution of Christian learning, with innovative educational programs, in a caring environment that meets the needs of young children from JK to Grade 8.
This month, TCS launched its $50,000 fundraising campaign, having already established two lead gifts, where $10,000 will be matched by the first 10 supporters who will donate $1,000 each, and $5,000, where this gift will be matched by the first supporter who will donate $5,000.
This is the first time TCS has ever initiated a matching campaign of this size. For those wishing to donate a $1000 or $5000, their gift has the chance to be matched, doubling the impact of the gift.
Monies raised, in part, will fund the school’s operations and extras will be used for capital improvements.
TCS has had novel approaches to teaching through exploring other cultures by taking children on school trips to the National Arts Centre, the Montreal Biodome, and Quebec City in an effort to teach this next generation of leaders a better global understanding of how people live and work in the world around them.
“This is a celebration of 50 years of faith building, with God’s blessing, through our school children, staff, board, members and supporters,” says Brian Vandenberg, the school’s Treasurer. “This drive will support the various educational programs and enhance the facility. Our graduates have gone on to influence and contribute to society in huge ways.”
“We are blessed to have such a wonderful place in this community where children can enjoy a Christian education, led by excellent staff,” says Gary Postma, who serves TCS as Principal. “Our goal is to help the children connect learning with their growing faith.”
More can be learned about Timothy Christian School by checking out the school’s website, or on Facebook, or by visiting the school on a Welcome Wednesday.
There is no appointment necessary to meet the staff, see the facility and learn more about how faith is incorporated into everyday learning.
