Giving

Thank you for supporting DCS

Desert Christian Schools would not exist without the generous support of those who give of their time, talent, and treasure. The economic challenges of being an independent, non-denominational school require additional resources to operate and grow. Desert Christian Schools' Board of Trustees, faculty, administration, and staff recognize and deeply appreciate the many ways in which our donors contribute to the life of the school - and to a bright and promising future for every DCS student.


Whether you choose to support the Annual Fund, Financial Aid, or General Giving, gifts of any size significantly impact the school community and the educational experience of every Desert Christian student.



Teacher Blessing Donation

If you would like to help make the holidays extra special for our Faculty and Staff you can click the link below to donate to our Teacher Blessing Fund! The funds raised will be divided amongst all Faculty and Staff and they will get to pick giftcards out from our Scrip program. Each year this is just a small token of appreciation but one we know our employees are so grateful for. Thank you for helping make this possible!

The students of Desert Christian Schools are why our foundation and mission are so important. At the end of the day, at the end of their school years, it is our greatest desire that our students are not only lifelong learners ready to make a difference in their world but that they understand how uniquely created and how unconditionally loved they are.

For 35 years, Desert Christian Schools has been provided for by God's grace and those who have come before us. As long as we continue to answer His call and always keep Him at the center of all we do, we know His provision and grace will be there. The steps we are taking as a school, the next phases, the building projects are no small feat, but already God has opened doors and is allowing us to move forward.

This current community of givers, though, are the ones who, in the next 35 years, people will refer to as "the ones who came before us." We have the opportunity to keep the foundation strong and to keep paving the way.

We are asking you now to be the ones who will come before the next generation of Desert Christian Schools. Our only desire for you to contribute financially is if you feel that call truly placed on your heart, and our only wish for the amount in which you give is the amount that makes you joyful to provide. And if the greatest way you can contribute to our school is by keeping us in your prayers and supporting our mission, please know you have richly blessed us just the same!

Areas to Give

General Giving

Desert Christian Schools would not exist without the generous support of those who give of their time, talent, and treasure. The economic challenges of being an independent, non-denominational school require additional resources to operate and grow. Desert Christian Schools' Board of Trustees, faculty, administration, and staff recognize and deeply appreciate the many ways in which our donors contribute to the life of the school - and to a bright, promising future for every DCS student.

Here you may choose to give several different programs or places (i.e. sports teams, clubs, student services, etc). Please make sure to name where you would like your donation to go in the "Honor of" or "In Memory of" box.

Annual Fund

Since 1986, Desert Christian Schools has lovingly served families with children in Preschool to 12th grade. We partner with families to raise Godly young adults who serve their world with Christ-like values. For many, it is a financial sacrifice to afford private, Christian education, so we rely on gifts from our community to keep our tuition rates as low as possible.

Your donation to our school will support our Annual Fund which bridges the gap to afford necessities that tuition doesn’t cover such as teacher needs, security, campus enhancements, technology, fine arts, skills center, athletics, and more. With so many ministries to choose from, we are grateful for your gift to our school. Thank you for helping us in our mission to disciple children to make a difference in their world!

Financial Aid

Most families send their children to Desert Christian Schools at significant financial sacrifice. The lack of resources often discourages a good number of spiritually committed, academically prepared students from attending DCS. Sometimes, unexpected or temporary financial hardship forces families to consider withdrawing from DCS.

To address these circumstances, Desert Christian Schools has two ways in which families can make tuition affordable, Tax Credit Scholarships and In-House Financial Aid.

Tax Credits are made possible by our partnership with School Tuition Organizations and by charitable donations. To learn more about Tax Credit Scholarships please click here.

Desert Christian Schools has also established In-House Financial Aid, which offers help to families on a short-term per need basis and offers discounts to those serving in full time ministry, military, public service, and those who enroll multiple students.

Please Note: Donating via our In-House Financial Aid button is not the same as donating via a Tax Credit Organization. If you have questions about which one you would like to donate to, please call our Business Office at 520-901-5499.
