Hope United Fund - Giving Financial Hope to Families of South Central Iowa Christian Schools

During this Covid-19 pandemic, as Christians we are united in the hope we have of God’s grand story in this world. “Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long,” writes David in Psalm 25:5.

As Christian Schools, we rejoice in the hope we have in Christ to see us through this pandemic, but also recognize the financial strain many of our families may be enduring.  For this reason we are uniting together to raise funds for additional tuition assistance during this uncertain time.

Need for Tuition Assistance during Covid-19:

Combined, our schools are made up of 807 families whose work situations may have been disrupted due to the Coronavirus; as a result, some families are unsure if they will be able to continue sending their child(ren) to their Christian School.

During these uncertain times, children need the certainty of the support and love that their schools and teachers provide.  A disruption like a change of school would bring even more uncertainty and challenges to students.

A reduction in enrollment would have a significant impact on the future of Christian Education in South Central Iowa.

This is why we have launched the Hope United Fund – to help students and families of Southeast Central Iowa Christian Schools who have financial hardships due to Covid-19, to make it possible for these students to continue their education at their Christian School.  By supporting this fund, you are giving families hope and uniting together in the advancement of Christian Education in South Central Iowa.
