Ways to Help

Here's How You Can Help!

The Development Office works closely with families, friends, alumni, corporations and foundations to reach each year’s specific Annual Fund goals.  We do this with confidence knowing that Foothill Christian School provides a superior, Christ-centered education that has earned a respected place among leading private, Christian schools.  Along with full accreditation by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), the school has received “EXEMPLARY” status by ACSI.  Regionally, our preschool was voted “BEST PRESCHOOL” in the San Gabriel Valley by the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, Pasadena Star-News and Whittier Daily News in 2012! 

With today’s economic challenges, the need for private support is crucial to sustain the level of excellence we celebrate and fervently maintain. Please join us in supporting the legacy of excellence that began nearly 50 years ago! Consider making a monthly pledge to Foothill Christian School. Your gifts can be made online or with your regular tuition payments. To use our fast, safe and secure online giving feature, click here: Give!

Albertsons’ Community Partners Card
FREE cards are available in the school offices. You don't have to use this card to receive discounts, but each time you scan it at the check out counter, Albertsons’ refunds a portion of your purchase back to FCS every quarter. Did you know that Starbucks Coffee INSIDE of Albertson’s will honor your Community Partners Card so that FCS receives credit?! Also try scanning your card at Sav-On and OSCO ... also owned by Albertson’s.
Foothill's Business Directory
Buying ad space or selling ad space in Foothill's Business Directory is a great way to help sponsor our 8th Grade Washington D.C. trip or funding support for Chess and Cheerleading national competitions.
Great Opportunities for Parents and Grandparents to Volunteer!
During the school year, we have a number of planned events that need volunteer talent, skill and ideas.  Whether it's our Golf Classic, Grandparents Day, the Annual Fund dinner, or Spring Jog-A-Thon, your gifts of time will make a critical difference. For more information, contact our Office of Development today!
Payroll Deduction Support
Wells Fargo, Northrop-Grumman, 3M Foundation, Well-Point Foundation and Edison International all offer payroll deduction support for FCS. Some businesses even offer a matching gift program that doubles your donation.
SCRIP
Make buying FCS SCRIP a Habit!  Buy from our inventory or place an order for SCRIP cards to hundreds of area businesses. From fast food and gasoline to clothing and theater tickets, SCRIP is a great way to make your regular household purchases and support the school at the same time. CLICK HERE for Order Form.

Target Take Charge of Education
Target donates 1% of Target Visa and Target Guest Card purchases made at Target or at
www.target.com, and ½ % of Target Visa purchases made elsewhere to our school when you designate FCS as the recipient. CLICK HERE to enroll your Red Card!

United Way Campaign
Foothill Christian School is an official charity of United Way! Families can donate through their employer payroll program and designate our school as a recipient of the funds. (We are listed under our corporate name Foothill Christian Center, but the funds come to the school.)

Check with your employer about payroll deduction gifts to FCS through United Way. Those donations can be specifically designated to FCS (account #22570).

Extend your donation by asking a co-worker to join you! Many parents who give through United Way are encouraging their co-workers to designate some or all of their United Way contributions to FCS too!
