The ministry of DeMotte Christian School is dependent on continuous support from parents, churches, and other individuals and organizations. There are many ways to support the students:
Please, don't overlook the power of prayer. Pray for our faculty and staff as they pursue the work of educating children with Biblical standards. Pray, also, for the students as they grow and learn and begin to make choices that will affect the rest of their lives.
DeMotte Christian has many opportunities in which you can get involved. Contact or visit the school office to sign up.
Giving of your finances is one of the most effective ways to support our students. Financial gifts, throughout the year, allow us to supplement extra-curricular programs and keep tuition costs as low as possible.
If you are feeling led to give to DeMotte Christian, you may contact the Development Office at 219-987-3721, or send a check to PO Box 430, DeMotte IN 46310.
All contributions are eligible for tax-deduction!
There are several different major campaigns or opportunities that are presented to our community based on their passion. Some of these campaigns are targeted at certain groups of people and are designated for different purposes.
Sharing the Promise – Sharing the Promise is an opportunity for honoring the promise we make at a child’s baptism to support the family as they seek to raise each child in the faith. An appeal letter is mailed in the fall of the year. About a month after the appeal letter is sent, school board members, staff, and other volunteers make a phone call to everyone who has not already sent a gift or pledge of support.
One Day Campaign – We endeavor to provide a quality, Christ-centered education for all families. Offering a Christian education of high standards to more families creates a revenue gap that must be covered by other sources. For just $40 a day, one more student can know Christ in his or her life at DMC. One day really does make a difference.
Can you give an entire day? Can you give more than one day? Even the smallest gift can make a difference.
Harvest Sale Auction – For over 50 years, the fall Harvest Sale has provided an opportunity for businesses and individuals to donate items to the auction. In turn those items provide a fun evening for family and friends of the school to become the winning bidder, receive valuable merchandise and support our students. The Harvest Sale is run by the school’s Auxiliary Board.
Golf Outing – The golf outing is usually scheduled for the last Saturday of June and is held at Sandy Pines Golf Club. Proceeds of the golf outing support the DMCS Foundation in its endeavor to provide lasting support for our students.
