2018 Year-end Drive
The lights flick on in an otherwise dark building and the staffroom coffeemaker begins the first of its many cycles for the day. Outside, the parking lot begins to reflect the activity inside the school as a growing stream of vans, cars and SUVs stop by the curb, releasing cargoes of lively kindergarteners, backpacked elementary kids and high school students. The morning bell rings, and students and staff organize into hallways, classrooms and offices. Another day has begun at BVCS…another day of fulfilling our mission from within a building that few of us give any thought to.
We don’t often think about the flooring under our feet or the roof over our heads as we carry out the mission of Christian education. That’s because our mission isn’t about buildings—it’s about transforming student lives with the gospel. But in many ways, our building makes fulfilling our mission possible.
In 2017, a professional independent roof audit was conducted and it confirmed what we had begun to suspect: our building’s roof is in need of replacement. The roof audit made a number of recommendations about strategic phases in which this replacement can be done. The first of these phases will be approximately $75,000.
To help our community accomplish this, several BVCS supporters have come together to form a ‘matching funds’ pool of $25,000. When you contribute on or before December 19, these donors will automatically match your donation and you’ll receive a charitable tax receipt for your contribution.
When our families, staff and giving partners come together in the annual campaign, BVCS is able to raise funds that will address capital needs such as the roof replacement.
Let’s accomplish this goal—together.
Matching funds double your impact.
We have received a generous matching fund challenge from a group of BVCS supporters for up to $25,000. Your gift will be automatically matched dollar-for-dollar when you contribute (cheque or online) on or before December 19. You will be receipted for your portion of the contribution.
