According to ACSI, private Christian schools should derive their annual budget by 80% tuition, 20% fundraising. Cadillac Heritage Christian School derives its’ budget by 70% tuition, 30% fundraising. In recent years, we have taken the stance that we will not try to “sell” you something in order to raise funds. We have our Annual Dessert Extravaganza & Auction each year, and in the Spring, the children participate in the “Hoops & Loops Program”.
The following is a list of programs that we use for two reasons – first, to help reduce tuition costs for our families, and second to assist meeting the 30% fundraising goal to make our annual budget. If you have any questions, please call the school office.

TRIP stands for the “Tuition Reduction Incentive Program”. Great Lakes Scrip Center is the company we use to facilitate the “Scrip” orders. TRIP and Scrip are words that are used interchangeably – and they both represent the gift cards you can purchase for items you use everyday! You earn back a certain percentage (amount varies according to retailer). 50% of the amount earned can be applied to your tuition, and 50% to the General Fund, or all of it can be applied to the General Fund. The amount you designate to the General Fund will go to reduce your fundraising commitment.

Direct Your Dollars
Coordinator: Sharon Jenema
It’s easy to “Direct Your Dollars.” Every time you shop at any Family Fare Supermarket , save your receipts. For every $150,000 in receipts we collect, we will earn a $1,000 donation from SpartanNash. With your support and your receipts you will be raising money for our school. If you aren’t able to drop your receipts off in person, you can also mail them to CHCS, 1706 Wright Street, Cadillac, MI 49601. We do need original receipts to earn the $1,000 donation, so no photocopies, please.
