Planned Giving

Guelph Community Christian School’s Planned Giving Program is facilitated and administered by the Christian School Foundation.

The Christian School Foundation is an amalgamation of the Central Ontario Christian Education Foundation (COCEF), Foundation for Niagara & Hamilton area Christian Schools (FNHCS) and Grand River Advancement of Christian Education (GRACE) Foundation.

The Christian School Foundation pulls together experts in financial planning, tax law and estate planning to offer a range of inspiration, information and services to donors and their advisors so that gifts to the Christian school movement are received and managed in a stewardly and God-honouring way. It also works with its member schools to ensure that the stories of God’s faithfulness and blessing are collected and shared.

All funds donated to the Christian School Foundation in respect of Guelph Community Christian School directly benefit our school.  In addition to the school’s general endowment fund, the opportunity exists for donors to tailor their gift to suit their philanthropic interests.  This includes designating gifts or creating funds for specific purposes (e.g., bursaries, enhancements to music or athletic programs, purchase of technology or debt retirement, etc.) and also over specific timeframes (e.g., a permanent endowment or a flow-through gift over a certain number of years).  The Christian School Foundation also has expertise in assisting donors with bequests and other planned giving.
