At Grand Rapids Christian Schools, our goal is to ensure an outstanding Christian education is readily accessible and we are dedicated to carrying out our mission of preparing students to be effective servants of Christ in contemporary society.
The Eagles Fund — Grand Rapids Christian Schools’ annual fund that provides immediate resources and lasting impact for more than 2000 students across our five campuses — is the bedrock of charitable giving for our school community.
The Eagles Fund supports GRCS students through tuition assistance and student support services, and helps maintain our schools’ exceptional academics and fine arts programs.
By partnering with us and supporting the Eagles Fund, you enhance the GRCS experience for both current students and generations of students to come. Each year, hundreds of parents, grandparents, staff, alumni, and supporters partner with us by making an investment in our students.
Below you will learn why these GRCS community members support the Eagles Fund and why they encourage others to do the same. By supporting the Eagles Fund, you express your commitment to provide students a Christ-centered, student-focused education.
We are drawn together by God, who will do a new thing through our collaboration (Isaiah 43:19).
We invite your partnership and participation in GRCS’ mission and vision because Together We Soar.
