We value your support
Just as Jesus relied on his Twelve, we rely on many donors, volunteers, families, local businesses and prayer partners. We could not accomplish our goals without the blessing of God or the work of others and for that, we are grateful.
Ways to Help BCS
Volunteer: We are always looking for volunteers to assist with Reading and Math Groups, Hot Lunch, Run Club, and Art Class. Volunteering is a great way to get to know BCS staff and students and is an opportunity to mentor our young people.
Donate: We are a 501c(3), non-profit organization. Apart from our two primary fundraisers, we are always grateful for donations. We can use the funds to support a specific facility upgrade, fund a needs-based scholarship, or apply the donation to a different need. Donations can be made one of three ways:
- Checks can be made out to BCS and mailed,
- Checks or credit/debit cards can be used on our secure donation website, or
- We can accept gift of Stocks and Bonds (Instruction on how to make a Gift to Bethany Christian School)
Contribute to EITC: The Educational Improvement Tax Credit is a program open to Pennsylvania businesses whereby they can designate a portion of their Pennsylvania State Income Tax to a school of their choosing and receive almost a full tax credit for that donation. We use this money to provide needs-based scholarships to Pennsylvania families. Read more about EITC.
Pray: We are firm believers in the power of prayer and ask that all of our families pray for our students, staff, and community. If you would like to join our Prayer Group, they meet on Monday mornings at the school to pray for any concerns.
Scrip: Our scrip program is where BCS Supporters can buy gift cards at face-value to national and local businesses and BCS retains a margin, usually around 3-5% of the face-value. This is a wonderful way to support the school with your regular shopping. You can sign up at Great Lakes Scrip using our enrollment code C7D37BC32537L.
Box Tops: We collect Box Tops for Education. Did you know that each little cardboard box top is worth 10 cents? Those dimes add up! Each class competes for the most Box Tops per student. If they win, they get a treat. We accept Box Tops via the mail also, you can even designate a class or grade!
Amazon Smile: If you are an Amazon shopper, consider going into Amazon through Amazon Smile and designate BCS as the charity of your choice. We receive 0.5% of every purchase made through Amazon Smile.
Martin’s A+ Rewards: Link your Martin’s Grocery Store rewards card to BCS and a portion of your purchase goes back to support our school. You can go to Martin’s to link your card. Martin’s is located in Rising Sun, Maryland, just over the PA state line.
