What is the Annual Fund Drive?

The Annual Fund Drive is the most critical campaign that the BCACS Foundation manages each year. Funds derived from this campaign support an operational subsidy for Battle Creek Area Catholic Schools, which in turn keeps tuition as low as possible for our families. The more successful this campaign is each year, the more successes we can celebrate in each of our schools.

How can you give to the Annual Fund Drive?

Gifts of Stock or Mutual Fund

Gifts of appreciated securities may represent a two-fold tax savings opportunity as you may avoid paying capital gains tax on the increased value of the stock and get a charitable donations for your taxes. The process is very simple and we can help to walk you through it. Please contact Abby Lumbard at alumbard@bcacs.org or by calling 269.963.4771 if you are interested in learning more.

Employer Matching Gifts

Matching gifts are a simple way to increase your contribution through your employer matching the money you give or the volunteer hours you donate to our schools. Denso, W.K. Kellogg Foundation, and Eaton are a few employers with matching gift programs. Kellogg and State Farm are examples of organizations that match volunteer hours with a gift to our schools. United Way also allows employees to designate “Battle Creek Area Catholic Schools Foundation” as a recipient. Contact your employer for more information on their matching gift or employee giving programs.


Spread the Word

Be an advocate for our schools! Ask your family, friends, or employers to support our Foundation or consider enrolling their children in our schools.

Your prayers for our students, staff, board members, donors, and volunteers are greatly appreciated
