Opportunities to Give to Westside
For more than 20 years, Westside Christian Academy has been a beacon of hope in Detroit by providing children a holistic, Christ-centered education in a loving community. Each year, we invite friends, churches, and foundations to join us in the powerful ministry of giving hope to educationally and economically under-resourced children in Detroit. It costs approximately $6,000 to educate each child. Because our students, on average, are only able to pay about $800 in tuition, we trust God to provide more than $700,000 annually through the generosity of our donors.
For any questions about giving or development, please contact Mike Thomas, Director of Development.
Sponsor a Student
The cost to educate one student is about $6,000 per year. Some people choose to sponsor a student as an individual or family while others pool their resources together so that a small group of people share the opportunity for sponsorship.
Sponsor a Class
Groups and families have felt called to sponsor an entire class of students. The amount per class is determined by the number of students.
Form a Giving Circle
Westside has been blessed by several people forming a large group of supporters we call Giving Circles. These circles have helped in various ways, including our general fund, student scholarships, and special projects. Our development team can talk with you more in depth about how a Giving Circle works and to help you coordinate this effort.
