A picture says a 1000 words: This one could have said “Phew… Disaster Averted!”

With all the 10 top lists floating around this time of year I thought it might appropriate to create one for VCS.donate-now

Necessary funds needed to meet very real expenses!
 At first glance you might think this list looks very familiar. It reflects some of the real costs of owning a home – it could be yours! To keep VCS operating strong there are real expenses and costs that tuition does not cover. My top 10 list is not comprehensive one nor is it in any particular order. I created it to give you a peek into the world behind the numbers.

Phew! Disaster Averted

A picture says a 1000 words… This one would say ‘Phew…Disaster Averted!’ If there was room I think I would give this image the caption … ‘Disaster Averted but it could have been a big hit for our 2016/17 Budget’.
Imagine a fund that would cover unforeseen but very real expenses… The water main leak pictured here, occurred in the very beginning of December  – it could have sent our budgetary goals reeling.

A balancing act that has been managed through talent and skill…
Tuition and government funding cover basic operational costs – not extras. Often, the long-term needs of the school are put aside to meet the demands of the urgent and pressing to-do’s. It’s a balancing act that has been managed through talent, skill, and, at times, a donation that arrives at just the right moment from a faithful donor!

God is good… And donors have been generous! Total giving to date: $38,873
We are humbled by God’s provision. And we are thankful for the many people who contributed to bring this campaign over the halfway mark to a total of $38,873. Meeting the needs for today and tomorrow rests in the hearts, in the prayers, and in the plans of the current board, staff, parents, and YOU – our extended family.
