NCS joined the global Giving Tuesday movement (after Black Friday and Cyber Monday) and gave generously at drive-thru event.
** UPDATE -- As of December 7, 2023, thanks to your generous giving on Giving Tuesday and over the past week, the student safety & accessibility fund is already at $15,233 … more than 20% of the way to our $75,000 goal! Thank you! **
On Giving Tuesday (November 28) -- as students and staff handed out donuts in the Nanaimo Christian School parking lot before school -- parents, grandparents and friends of the school gave a total of $7,698. Thank you for your generous giving!
Thank you for coming alongside to support the school's greatest need: important student safety and accessibility upgrades to meet the new provincial requirements. We are 10% of the way to our 2023-24 annual giving goal of $75,000!
We are excited to see the day when every student can clearly hear announcements, every student can get through entrance doorways independently, and every student who needs adaptive equipment can access it for a quick and safe emergency evacuation.
Over the school’s 41-year history, people like you have so generously given your time, talents, prayer, and resources to build playgrounds, purchase multi-passenger vans, and raise up the next generation of children to be successful in who God has called them to be.
Big Giving Tuesday thanks to:
Everyone who dropped off donations or gave online
Tim Hortons Bowen Road for donating the 400 Timbits
NCS middle school students who held thank you signs during the morning drop off and danced to NCS school theme songs from years' past
Thank you for being part of what God is doing at NCS! Let’s keep building the legacy of giving, loving and caring. Together we can make a big difference.
“Your support helps create a safer, more accessible school where students can reach their full potential and grow in their faith. Removing barriers and increasing inclusion and independence really does benefit everyone.” -- Cheryl van Zyl, Elementary School Principal
