Ways to Support ELC
Thank you for your interest in supporting East Linn Christian Academy! Below we have different ways you can contribute to the school.
Pay for your Donation Online:
FACILITY DEVELOPMENT FUND
Kitchen Cafeteria ($500,000)
ACSI accreditation requires ELCA to have a cafeteria with adequate dining space and sanitary kitchen facility for students. The Phase 2 of the Activity Resource Center (ARC), will provide the cafeteria, fine arts area, auditorium and several needed classrooms. We are breaking down Phase 2 into several steps.
The first step of Phase 2 is building the cafeteria to meet requirements for ACSI accreditation. The cost for this part of the project is estimated at $500,000. Our goal is to fundraise this money by March of 2018. Your prayers and help are greatly appreciated. Please note that 10% of facility development donations will go towards the general fund to maintain current facilities and to aid the facility development fund.
Vocational/AG Building ($100,000)
There is a lack of skilled workers with vocational skills in the local workforce today. East Linn believes that giving students the opportunity to explore vocational jobs through a one year course is important. A simple 2 classroom building with lab area will fulfill this need.
PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT FUND
STEAM and Vocational Classes ($30,000 annually)
- STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) courses offer our students hands-on learning that is essential for equipping them for technological world in which we live. According to the US Department of Commerce, STEAM occupations are growing at a rate of 17%. The school board has personally invested in the STEAM program here at the school and they are committed to seeing the STEAM course options to grow in the next five years.
- The Vocational program will include students with viable jobs that are in demand in this area. Vocations skills are the backbone of our society and it is important to make students familiar with the options available today.
