New Beginners Educational Fund Donate here.

Like a passport opens the door to world exploration, a child’s first years of school have the potential to be the beginning of a lifelong learning adventure. School needs to be a place where kids feel welcomed, embraced, cared for, and valued. By cooperating with the divine purpose in imparting knowledge of God to children, Adventist education does more than teach. Its goal is to nurture the harmonious development of the emotional, physical, mental, spiritual, and social powers to further God’s purpose on this earth.

Caring parents want the best for their children, particularly during a time of extraordinary change that is reshaping the way we live, teach, work, worship, and socialize. Parents want a great education for their kids because it is their passport to success in life as adults.

The Northern California Conference is committed to supporting parents who wish to begin their child’s journey at one of our schools with the creation of the New Beginners Educational Fund.

With a goal to raise $47,000 by March 30, 2021, the New Beginners Educational Fund will cover half a month of tuition for up to 172 new students in kindergarten for the 2021-2022 school year. When we meet our goal and with funds from the Pacific Union Conference, these new kindergarteners will receive a full month of tuition.

However, our schools have the capacity to accept up to 280 students in kindergarten. Our miracle goal is to raise an additional $30,000 to encourage parents to enroll their kids, so our kindergarten classes can be at full capacity.

This is not a scholarship. There is no application. It is money given to the school to cover one month of tuition for every new student who enrolls in kindergarten!

The average monthly tuition for kindergarten in our conference is about $540. Since the Union is covering half, we are inviting you to match with a gift of $270. Donate here.
