Dear MBCA Family,
We are honored to chair MBCA’s 2021-2022 Annual Fund, participating with you in the financial support of our school. Like many of you, the moment we walked the halls of the yellow school building, touring for kindergarten, we knew MBCA was the only place for us. God’s peace, joy, and love were undeniable.
Our children are now in 4th and 5th grades, and MBCA continues to impress us, not only academically and with state-of-the-art technology, but in its mission to raise up Christ-centered children with the support of amazing teachers, great coaches, and faithful leadership.
Time and time again, we are reminded that this is God’s school and He is in control. In a time of unknowns, MBCA has not only achieved record-breaking enrollment, but has provided the most tuition assistance in school history. MBCA continues to spread the good news to our community and develop leaders for the Kingdom, no matter what.
We ask you to be in prayer as you plan your participation in this year’s Annual Fund and to pray BIG for our school. The goal for the 2021-2022 Annual Fund is $800,000 and 100 percent participation from our families by October 31.
In the coming weeks, you will receive an email, text, or phone call from our team of Annual Fund volunteers with information about how to make a gift or pledge to the Annual Fund. We are here to help you! Together, we will impact our children and future generations for Christ. If you are ready now to make your gift or pledge, please review the enclosed pledge card. You may complete the pledge card and send it to school with your student, send it by mail, or you may give or pledge electronically using the instructions on the pledge card. It’s simple, but oh so powerful.
You are part of God’s will in supporting MBCA‘s operations, assisting in financial aid, keeping our tuition as low as possible, attracting and retaining stellar faculty, and investing in our children’s bright futures. Each and every precious student at MBCA benefits from the Annual Fund.
We pray for another record-breaking year as we are reminded of Luke 2:14, “Glory to God in the highest, and peace to men on whom His favor rests,” and Matthew 19:26, “But Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.’” May this year be the best yet for our precious children and our highly-favored school. And we will give God all the glory!
With much gratitude,
Young-Ah and Richard Kim
2021-2022 Annual Fund Chairs
Independent schools such as Mt. Bethel Christian Academy traditionally conduct an annual giving campaign in the fall of each year. Some schools call it the Annual Sustaining Fund. Others call it the Loyalty Fund. We simply call ours the Annual Fund. The goals for the 2021-2022 Annual Fund are: One hundred percent parent, faculty, and board participation and $800,000.
The Annual Fund is a source of supplemental revenue used to augment the operating budget and address needs that tuition cannot provide. Your participation, in the form of a tax deductible gift, is very important to us. Gifts will support every aspect of the school's mission and provide MBCA with the resources it needs to enrich the superior, Christ-centered learning environment our students deserve.
- Attracting and retaining the best faculty and staff
- Facilities and programs maintenance and enhancements
- One-to-One iPads, laptops, and our digital library with more than 2,000 eBooks
- Fine arts, languages and athletics
- Small class size
- Field trips, field day, and events such as Grandparent's Day.
All members of the Mt. Bethel community – parents, faculty, grandparents, board of trustees and other friends – are asked to contribute to the Annual Fund.
