Last week was our first week of remote learning at HDCH, and we’re delighted with the way our students have stepped in with their characteristic enthusiasm. One student remarked,
“My experience with E-Learning so far has been wonderful. The way you can talk to teachers face to face is amazing. I know it is not the ideal circumstances but in my opinion we are making the most of the situation.”
We are staying focused on our mission of cultivating character in these times.
While we are looking positively on our rapid move to at-home learning, I am connecting today to ask for your help, if and as far as you are able. The current reality may well have hit some of you hard financially, such that you may not be in a position to help in this way. If that is so, we pray that you too will experience God’s provision and care. For others, we seek your consideration, in two ways, at this time.
Tuition Assistance Fund
Our tuition assistance fund is about 75% of the way to our annual goal. It’s wonderful to be at this place, and we ask for your support to get to the finish line. As financial hardships are on the rise, we anticipate growing need for Tuition Assistance. We believe it is important to ensure that finances are not a barrier for those families seeking Christian education at HDCH. May I invite you to donate to this fund today?
At our Special Membership Meeting on 10th March, our membership unanimously approved Phase 2 of our “CARE Campaign” (caring for our building, people, and creation). Over the summer, we plan to:
- Replace roof (section 7 only) and associated HVAC units
- Modify the front entrance and install a LULA lift system, all for accessibility.
The accessibility upgrades will make a life-changing difference for those with mobility challenges. The total cost for all this work is $675,000. We hope to raise this without the need for costly bridging credit. May I ask you to consider giving to this campaign today?
Please feel free to contact me or Sandra Baker, our Director of Recruitment & Advancement, directly by email (firstname.lastname@example.org 905-746-7961/ email@example.com 905-466-0237). We’d love to discuss these two needs with you.
Every gift of every size is most gratefully received. Thank you!
Yours in Christ,
Duncan Todd, Principal
