What is the Charger Fund?
The Charger Fund is a vital part of continuing the direct impact Central Christian has made on families for the last 50 years. We stand as a school who serves all families and connects great education and opportunities to a biblical worldview. Giving to the Charger Fund allows our community to charge ahead into the next 50 years to help create opportunities at the collegiate, vocational and work readiness levels.
Due to COVID 19, this year of giving is especially critical as we incur additional operating costs to open our school safely and properly based on state and federal guidelines. Tax Credit and Voucher scholarships do not cover the full cost of education and support needed at Central Christian Academy. This year more than ever, we need your support in the following areas.
Goal – $20,000
From storied tradition to ESPN Top 10 Plays, Central Christian understands that sports are much more than what happens on a playing field. It’s a place for students to grow, experience Christ, and have a reason to pursue their academic studies. Your support today will allow Central Christian Athletics to create these same experiences and continue to impact the lives of our students.
Goal – $20,000
The demand for a Central Christian education has increased greatly in the past months and years. To meet this demand, Central Christian will need to upgrade classroom technology to connect virtually with students, and purchase more supplies to keep our students safe. Your support will help Central Christian equip our classrooms with the right tools so teachers and students will get the most out of their time together.
Employee Christmas Fund
Goal – $25,000
The employees at Central Christian give their time and talents to the community each and every day. Sometimes, it’s not just the employees, but their spouses and family as well. The Christmas fund exists to deliver a generous bonus to our Central Christian employees for all their hard work, and your donation can help make that happen.
Goal – $50,000
Over the last 5 years, Central Christian has become a stand-alone 501(c)3 organization. Through this change, we took on some debt in order to continue operating our school. However, with the Charger Fund, we are seeking to retire our debt so that we can keep our doors open and continue to serve the Central Christian community for years to come.
Building and Operations Improvement
Goal – $30,000
Our 35,000 square foot campus serves as a second home to many families in our community, and maintaining these grounds is no small task. As Central Christian continues to grow, we believe that continual maintenance and upgrades will help our teachers and students feel safe and comfortable in their classrooms, resulting in a space that allows for growth and learning.
Tuition Assistance Fund
Goal – $30,000
For some, attending Central Christian can prove to be a financial challenge. Each year, many families find unique ways to bridge that gap and ensure their children receive a Central Christian Education. The Charger Fund aims to assist struggling families and help them through a consistent tuition assistance program. With your generosity, we can continue to support those who find it difficult to send their children to Central Christian every year.
We Would Love Your Support
About The Program
The Indiana Tax Credit Scholarship Program was established to incentivize private donations to fund educational choice for low to middle income families attending non-public schools. Alternatively, it’s been called the SEC (Scholarships for Education Choice) and SGO (Scholarship Granting Organization) program. Whatever you call it, it has been one of the most exciting and beneficial programs produced by Indiana’s state government in recent years.
The SGO program has provided many families with the funds necessary to allow their children a Christian education. When you give to the SGO program, through the Charger Fund, your support provides Central Christian the ability to continue to grow and better serve its students.
