Give to King’s Way

Year End 2020: An Enduring Legacy

Whether you measure your days as a Knight in months, years, or decades, we are grateful for the role you play in our community and the ways you and your family add to the unique character of our school. 

King’s Way Christian Schools were built on the premise that a quality, private, Christian education was desired for families in Vancouver, WA. Vancouver Church and multiple administrators over the years are responsible for the community we enjoy today. However, its fate and future now rest with the generations that follow. It is our responsibility to continue to join hands, hearts, and minds to continue the legacy laid out before us and to grow the vision for the future. Especially in times of uncertainty and when there are big challenges to face, philanthropy and advocacy play essential roles in seeing our community through those times. Our collective participation in annual giving not only provides financial stability to weather financial setbacks, but signals our unity and commitment to the King’s Way community.

We are continually grateful for the variety of ways King’s Way receives support each year. Whether you give your time as a volunteer, act an advocate in the community, or make financial contributions to our programs, your commitments sustain us, and preserve the extraordinary learning environments that allow our students to thrive. 

We are touched by the ongoing support, encouragement, generosity, and care you continue to show the King’s Way to and your fellow Knights during this time. King’s Way embraces putting action to the words: Discover, Discern, Dream, Do! – We ask you to do the same and donate to our end-of-the year giving campaign today. 

 

Investing in the Kingdom

At King’s Way, we strive to foster a culture of giving. This is evident in the ongoing support from our families, alumni, staff & faculty and community members that believe in the power of Christian education to transform lives and prepare students for lives of faith, leadership and service in the classroom, in competition, and in their communities.

King’s Way has great plans to broaden the impact that we can have in our community and in the lives of students. Our development team works to build more deep and meaningful relationships, create impactful experiences, and to play our part in growing the Kingdom.
