An Overview of Giving at RCS

The impact of philanthropic giving is evident throughout our campus and in the lives of our students and alumni. Charitable giving to Resurrection Christian School has provided significant enhancements to our academic, spiritual formation, and extra-curricular programs, along with making improvements to our facilities, technologies and equipment.

The solicitation of tax-deductible donations is intended to enable our families and friends to give based on ability and calling to grow RCS, rather than by a larger annual tuition increase. Tuition provides a wonderful and extensive operating budget for RCS. Charitable giving provides additional resources each year in our ceaseless pursuit of excellence.

The RCS Annual Fund

The RCS Annual Fund represents a pool of charitable gifts donated through fundraising programs and events that include the RCS Annual Giving Campaign, Giving Tuesday, the RCS Gala, the FORE!RCS Golf Tournament, and other activities. By pooling this gift revenue together, the RCS Board and staff leadership have the ability to evaluate a larger total sum of gift revenue and strategically prioritize where to invest these monies each year.

RCS is always striving to improve and raise the level of value we provide to students, families, and donors. Giving to our RCS Annual Fund campaigns and annual events provide the financial resources for the purchase of capital expenditures in the areas of:

RCS Corporate Partner Program

Locally focused advertising continues to prove an effective method in marketing a business' products or services.

Endowment Giving

Building an endowment for RCS secures the long-term financial sustainability of the school, and provides impactful blessings to students and teachers for generations to come.

The corpus of RCS-endowed gifts is invested with an independent investment firm with the oversight of the RCS Board of Directors, the RCS Foundation Board, and the school administration. The Foundation distributes a percentage of the endowment earnings to the school to benefit the designated purpose of the endowed gift.

We welcome opportunities to partner with donors who want to make an eternal investment in Resurrection Christian School. Named Endowment Funds may be established with a minimum gift of $25,000, which can be payable to us for five years. Gifts of any amount can be made to RCS to benefit our core endowment funds:

General Endowment — supports prioritized annual needs and special projects.
Scholarship Fund — provides need-based support for deserving students and families.
Faculty Fund — attracting, retaining, and supporting outstanding teachers.
Building Fund — ongoing maintenance and improvements for our facilities.

Planned Giving

You make a life-changing and eternal impact on the future by including Resurrection Christian School in your estate or other major planned gifts.

The RCS Legacy Society honors those who have included RCS in their estate plans. Please contact us if RCS is already a part of your estate plan or if you are considering doing so in the future. RCS treasures the opportunity to discuss planned giving and estate planning strategies that work best for you and your family. RCS also partners with your financial planning, tax, or legal advisors to tailor a planned gift to RCS that meets your objectives.

One of the simplest strategies is to add RCS to your will, bequest, or trust documents. You can choose to leave RCS a percentage, a specific amount, specific pieces of property, or the residual of your estate after providing for your heirs.

RCS Foundation

Established in 2006, the RCS Foundation Board of Directors and volunteers launched the RCS Gala, building a successful annual fundraising event that raised millions of dollars for the school. During the 2022-23 school year, the Foundation will transition its purpose to focus on the creation and growth of a meaningful endowment for Resurrection Christian School.

RCS has a vision and administrative philosophy of thinking 100 years into the future. To do so requires we have funds not only to operate today but well into the future. Endowments allow us to strategically amass funds over time in order to provide a consistent and sustainable form of revenue for the generations that follow us.

Individualized Education (I-ed)

In only its second year of existence, the need for launching our Individualized Education Program (“I-ed”) has quickly demonstrated the needs of RCS families and within Northern Colorado.

I-ed provides an individualized curriculum to over 140 RSC students. This number grows each month. I-ed administers best-in-class testing for cognitive, academic, and oral language abilities. Test results guide our I-ed staff to create customized teaching plans for each student. I-ed offers 40 different classes or groups per day. Classes include English Strategies, Math Strategies, Shepard’s Study Hall, Resilience Program, Executive Functioning Coaching, and Individualized Tutoring.

Your gift today to the RCS I-ed Program will help RCS sustain and grow the valuable programs that richly bless students and families.

Agriculture & Cougar Country Farms

Beginning in 2022, Resurrection Christian School now offers academic programs in agricultural science. Mixing contextual learning in the classroom with living laboratory instruction at Cougar Country Farms, students have the opportunity to learn about the science, business, and technology of plant production and environmental and natural resources systems.

RCS operates Cougar Country Farms, five acres of ground located only 3 miles east of campus that provides students rich opportunities to get their hands dirty with real-world planting, tending, and growing. At both the Farm and in the on-campus classroom, immediate needs exist for purchasing tools, equipment, greenhouses, and other items that improve the program.

Your gift today helps RCS immediately provide more quality for our students, while also helping us grow the programs for next year and beyond.

Contact Scott Carter at scarter@rcschool.org for more detailed information.
