Give Hope 2019 – UPDATED

We did it! Thank you for your generosity. We surpassed our goal of $152,000 and gave away more than $204,000 through 62 schools in the midlands. Check out this video:

Give Hope is our end-of-the-year giving initiative. It is our hope to bless the schools in our geographic radius with over $100,000 in financial assistance that the teachers and administrators can use to help those students or families in the most need. Each of the congregations in our Family of Churches has taken responsibility for the schools in their area.

Below is an interactive map and a complete list of schools so that you can see the impact that these funds can have on the midlands.

Give Hope Stories

We sat down with several principals and social workers around the schools we were able to help out in 2018. Here are some of their stories:

Pelion High School

Lexington High School

Gilbert High School

River Bluff High School

White Knoll High School

Saluda Elementary School

Saluda Primary School

Saluda High School

We’ve broken this year’s goal down into three tiers of giving. Tier One schools are those that are in the direct geographic footprint of our church. Tier Two schools are those that are in close proximity to the geographic footprint of our church OR schools that are in economically depressed areas. Tier Three has a few additional schools on the outer edges of our geographic footprint as well as additional funds for Tier One and Tier Two schools that we believe would benefit most from additional funds.

At the bottom of this page are links to give to each of these churches. Thanks for making our community better through your financial partnership!
