Ways to Give

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 Advertising, gifts of any size significantly impact the school community and the educational experience of every Desert Christian student. Thank you for supporting DCS.

"A gift opens the way for the giver and ushers him into the presence of the great." Proverbs 18:16

Desert Dash

Most families send their children to Desert Christian Schools at significant sacrifice, but for some the cost exceeds their means. Lack of personal financial resources often discourages a good number of spiritually committed, academically prepared students from attending Desert Christian Schools. Sometimes, unexpected or temporary financial hardship forces families to consider withdrawing from DCS.

To address these circumstances, Desert Christian has established a tuition assistance In-House Financial Aid, which offers help to families on a short term per need basis.

By providing assistance to families who otherwise could not give their children a Christian education, this fund has helped countless parents help cover the cost of tuition. We pray that through fundraising events such as Desert Dash and the generosity of individual donors, the door of opportunity for Christian education is open to more households in east Tucson.



Annual Fall Fundraiser

For 33 years, Desert Christian Schools has served families with children from Preschool to 12th grade with joy and love at two campuses. We partner with families in an effort to assist with helping them raise Godly young adults who serve their world with Christ-like values. For many, it is a financial sacrifice to afford a private, Christian education and we rely on gifts from our community to assist with keeping our tuition rates as low as possible, but education is expensive.

Your gift to our school will support our Annual fund which assists our schools in bridging the gap to afford necessities that tuition doesn’t cover such as teacher needs, security, campus enhancements, technology, fine arts, skill center, athletics and more! There are many ministry opportunities to give to, and we are grateful for your gift to our school. Thank you for your part in helping us in our mission to disciple children to make a difference in their world!
