We are so blessed to live here in the Okanagan Valley. Penticton Christian School lives right in the heart of our community. Whether you have children that attend the school, you're an alumni or parent of the school, we know that you feel the same way. Each day we see ways that we can help enrich the lives not only of our students and their families but students that wish they could attend our school. If you have it in your means to support and bless the school we would be happy to talk with you any time.
We are also set up with the organization CanadaHelps.org. They can provide you with an immediate tax receipt for your donation.
So grateful for your generosity
In running an independent school one of our constant challenges ensuring the resources are in place for our students to have an exceptional learning environment without having to raise tuition. Aside from the ultimate show of support which is your child’s enrollment, Penticton Christian School is flexible with the ways in which we can accept your generosity. All of the options below are encouraged, but we suggest that you speak with your Professional Advisor to ensure you use the method that makes the most sense for your financial situation. If you don't have a professional advisor our Finance committee would be happy to meet with you as well.
