$75,000 Matching Grant to BACS Student Financial Aid Fund and Bryn Athyn Church Annual Fund

The graphs below show the year-to-date amount given to meet our Matching Grant to the Student Financial Aid Fund and the Annual Fund Grant.

The Student Financial Aid Fund supports the Bryn Athyn Church School students. Our goal and practice is to provide financial aid in order to make a distinctive New Church education available to any family who desires it for their children. All families receive some financial support through the operating budget, endowment, and annual fund, as tuition alone does not cover the total cost, which is estimated to be $14,000 per year for each student. In addition, the school is budgeting approximately $1,000,000 in tuition assistance for 2017-2018. This grant was given to us to build awareness for this fund and to increase giving by not only BACS families, but to anyone who supports New Church education in our community. This fund will be matched dollar for dollar up to $75,000.

The Annual Fund can’t be forgotten. We also have a grant for the Annual Fund that will match dollar for dollar any gifts from those who have not given in 2014, 2015 or 2016. The annual fund helps us in all aspect of what we do at the

Church and school, it supports salaries, our buildings, small groups, marriage and family support, volunteer programs, such as Pay-It Forward, weekly and special church services and more. All donations made to this fund by those who have not given in 2014, 2015 or 2016 will be matched up to $50,000.
