Thrive Campaign Goal Reached
God has richly blessed us through the ambitious Thrive campaign initiated just a couple of years ago. We’re excited to announce that we’ve reached our goal of $4 million in pledges and we’ve done it ahead of schedule. Praise God!
With support from our generous community, the Thrive campaign has already cut our debt in half (from $4.4 million to $1.9 million), raised starting teacher salaries to $30,000, delivered the first Thrive 5% staff-wide salary increase, and allowed us to invest in strategic Vision 2017 goals and critical school needs.
While we can celebrate the Thrive campaign reaching its target, financial challenges still remain. As future factors allow, we will continue on our current path towards full debt elimination and a 10% compensation adjustment for our worthy servants. We look forward to providing additional updates in the months ahead.
Of the $4 million, we have received just over $3.5 million in cash, with less than $500,000 still to be collected. Full collection on the remaining pledges will still take some time, but we are well ahead of our originally targeted campaign end date of summer 2018. Reaching this milestone at this time is also important because it allows us to move on to other critical school needs.
Our full campaign slogan was Thrive: Eyes on the Future. Over 400 families and friends of Heritage boldly invested in our future through the campaign. On behalf of Heritage leadership and every staff member you have blessed, we want to say thank you to everyone who participated in the Thrive campaign.
In Philippians 4:6, Paul says, “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done.”
Please join us in praising and thanking God for what He is accomplishing at Heritage Christian School.
