Types of Gifts:

You can direct your donation to any of our funds shown below:

1. Daily Operations

As a privately run Christian School, Oxford Reformed Christian School receives no government funding and relies solely on tuition and the generous support of churches and individuals to maintain the daily operations. Your donation to the daily operations will be helping ORCS students make the most of each learning opportunity and ensuring the school will have the resources to support, enable and motivate each student.





2. Scholarships and Awards

Various awards and scholarships are available to graduating students each year to encourage and reward student excellence. The awards range from high academic achievement in a variety of disciplines, to diligence and citizenship awards. Your donation to Scholarships and Awards Program will allow us to continue to offer these incentives to our high school students. At your request, you also have the privilege of presenting the awards at the graduation and closing ceremony.





3. Planned Giving

a) A bequest is one of the simplest ways to support ORCS. Consider designating Oxford Reformed Christian School as a beneficiary in your will. Bequests can be made in the form of a percentage of an estate, or as a specific amount. The following language is an example of how you could include us in your will:
