Little Eagle is a 501c3 with a mission of creating financial support for Pella Christian Schools using the organization's God-given gifts and do so without asking for out-of-pocket cash donations from the school societies. Organized in December 2016, the Little Eagle Board consists of Pella Christian Grade School and High School society members with a variety of backgrounds including education, finance, real estate, construction, small business ownership, building maintenance, and technology.
Little Eagles current projects consist of:
Spec Home Construction - Little Eagle builds one to three spec homes each year. The purpose of these builds is two-fold. First, the profits from the sale of each home are used to fund Little Eagle endeavors. Secondly, PCHS students participate in a winterim class where they learn skills in the construction trade and make connections with local contractors.
Farmland and Sweet Corn Sales - Little Eagle has also purchased eighteen acres of farmland and a small plot of land that was used to raise sweet corn in the summer of 2020. Over 500 dozen bags of sweet corn were picked and sold.
Rental Properties - Little Eagle owns and maintains rental properties around Pella. These rentals have been used for new teachers to PC and others.
Little Eagle continues to look for ways to invest in new ideas that will have a long term financial impact on Pella Christian Schools.
