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.





Special Giving Opportunity | Matching Gift Campaign

One of our alumni families would like to match the first $50,000 given during this year-end campaign.

On campuses, we see our annual scripture verse, “For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but of power, love and discipline” 2 Timothy 1:7 lived out daily. We thank God for the outstanding faculty that come prepared each day, in spite of the ongoing pandemic, to teach and build relationships with our young people. Every day I see examples of a “can do” attitude and a commitment to making good things happen rather than adopting a "cancel mentality.”

This year, our fall fundraiser, A Night in the Desert, was limited in attendance but was a remarkable testament to our resiliency and commitment to telling the DCS story. It is a story that started long ago in 1986 with a handful of parents coming together to birth a new high school. Their heart’s desire was there would be a school, a spiritual oasis in the desert, that would teach the next generation with the God of the Bible as the central focus.

As we close this year and look to the next, would you once again consider a year-end gift?

Thank you for all your dedication, prayers, and financial support of Christian education and Desert Christian Schools–we could not do it without you!

You can drop off donations at any of our school offices, or mail donations to our business office at Desert Christian Schools, 7525 E. Speedway Blvd, Tucson, AZ 85710.

Areas to Give



Annual Fund

For 33 years, 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 Assistance.

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 Assistance, 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 Assistance 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.
