The Tale of Three Gifts

August 15, 2018
By Rob Mitton, Director of Development

This is a milestone year for the Cascade Christian giving community. Why? Because over 900 of you have given more than $500,000 this year, to help students stay at CCS and to improve their experience while they are here! That is not a typo. Your gifts are impressive and generous. Thank you for being a part of this giving community.

Recently, I opened the mailbox to find three gifts. Each told a story about a giver and the giver’s passion to make a difference in students’ lives.

The first gift I opened was a $10,000 check. The giver of this gift has been faithfully supporting CCS for several years. As a grateful alumni parent, she wants other kids to experience what her child experienced at CCS. This gift means five more students get to stay at the school they love. This is a life-changer for those kiddos. They get to grow up in a community that helps them build their lives on Jesus, our true foundation.

The second gift I opened was a $400 check. This monthly gift is from one of our Business Partners. Their children attend CCS, in part because other generous givers (including you) helped them with tuition when their children were younger. Now that their business is thriving, they are giving back to make a difference for other kids. This recurring gift means two more students get to stay at the school they love.

The third gift I opened was a $15 check. This is a monthly gift in perpetuity. The givers are alumni grandparents who decided years ago to make CCS students part of their monthly giving. Over the years, I have seen their gifts impacting students’ lives every day.

Each of these three gifts represent a giving community of shared values, sacrificial giving, and immeasurable impact on the students of Cascade Christian Schools.

If you’ve made a gift to CCS students, thank you.




400: People who attended and made the night unforgettable
27: Sponsors who helped make the night possible
$242,000: Proceeds raised through your generous gifts
$76,000: Amount raised in the Fund-a-Need to provide a world-class STEM education
1: Out of all the numbers, one is still the most significant. You are the one to thank for impacting a generation!

Thank you to everyone who volunteered, attended, supported, and sponsored this wonderful night of generosity!


The Impact Auction Making an Impact

The Impact Auction Making an Impact

When we look into the face of a child, we see wonder and promise—and a future that looks right back at us. Curious. Busy. Eager to grow and learn.

              CCS students Nathan, Keeley,
          and Maureen love the experience
                        your gifts bring.

The gifts you gave at the Impact Auction will provide a state-of-the-art mobile lab and a STEM specialist for all three CCS elementary campuses. Experiential classes will nurture students’ natural curiosity and love of learning, classes like Pushes and Pulls, in which kindergartners apply what they learn to a swing set installation project. Or Light: Observing the Sun, Moon, and Stars, in which elementary students design a playground structure that protects kids from UV radiation.

Classes like these will prepare students to use CAD software and print their creations on a 3D printer in junior high and high school classes like Design and Modeling, and to solve a murder mystery using DNA electrophoresis in the class Medical Detectives. CCS students at all levels will grow in a comprehensive K–12 STEM education because of your generosity.

         CCS student Lake says,
“Thank you for making this possible.”

Thank you for seeing the future in the students of CCS and for putting your gifts where your values are. You are making a world of difference for the children and youth that your gifts touch. Those students are becoming discerning leaders and will be prepared to impact their world because of you.
