Support WCGS

An eternal investment

Give

Your generosity makes a
world of a difference

Since 1942, Wheaton Christian Grammar School has been preparing tomorrow’s leaders to be Christ centered, critical thinkers, and community builders who impact their world for Jesus Christ. This has been made possible in part because of the generous and sacrificial giving of others. While our school and community have grown greatly from our humble beginning, we still depend on gifts as we educate, train, and nurture children for godliness and excellence.

Make an Impact

Invest in the next generation

Something amazing happens every day at Wheaton Christian Grammar School. It can be observed in students as they transition between subjects, step onto athletic fields and sport courts, or fold their hands to pray. You can see it when students place their fingers on string instruments, try the monkey bars for the first time, dissect seeds, or open a new story in the library. With curious minds and bright eyes, students are being transformed spiritually, academically, socially, and emotionally. The transformation that takes place in a student from Kindergarten to 8th Grade is one that can have an eternal impact. At WCGS, we care deeply about this transformation. With powerful transformation comes intentional investment.

Invest in the Next Generation

Annual Scholarship Fund

This fund provides scholarship assistance to our students each year who would not otherwise be able to enroll. Our yearly goal for the Annual Scholarship Fund is $600,000. The Annual Scholarship Fund is supported through direct donations, the Scholarship Benefit and Auction, and the Annual Scholarship Golf Outing.

Capital Campaign

With prayer and anticipation, we broke ground for our current campus on March 19, 2009, and moved in June 2010. God brought us here through the generous and sacrificial gifts of His people, but we still have work to do. Of the new campus cost – $25M – our remaining debt is just under $700,000!

Kaleidoscope Fund

This program provides services for students who need academic support to benefit from their educational experience at WCGS. Participating families pay a fee for these services above their regular tuition. Every effort is made to keep the cost affordable, but the cost is a factor that affects some families’ ability to participate.

Matthew Anderson Fund

The Matthew Anderson Fund serves to fund initiatives of spiritual development and formation for students, faculty, and staff members of WCGS. The Fund was established to honor the life and legacy of a former student who fought a valiant battle with leukemia and taught us all lessons of faith and courage.

Annual Scholarship giving events

Wheaton Christian Grammar would not be the school it is today without the enthusiastic support of parents, alumni, and special friends in our community who believe in our mission of educating, training, nurturing children for godliness and excellence. We’ve found that some of the best ways to connect the many people who love this school are through events that are both fun and intentional – opportunities to highlight all the great things that God is doing here every day.
