Annual Support Goal
There is a long-standing tradition of generous support for the ministry of Great Plains Lutheran High School. In fact, we would not be able to do what we do in the way we do it without this generous support. Thanks to God's people with a heart for their Lord and a heart for Christian education, we are able to keep our tuition rate among the lowest in the nation, making this Christ-centered education as affordable as possible for as many as possible. This is a tremendous blessing for our families!
Our Annual Support Goal covers the difference between the actual cost to educate each student and what a family pays in tuition. Here are some of the ways you can make it possible for us to nurture students as lifelong disciples of Christ. Thank you for your support!
Designate your gift to any of these Funds
Active Ministry (formerly General Fund)
The gifts designated to this fund help to meet the Annual Support Goal for the school year making GPL an affordable option for many families by covering the difference between the cost to educate each student and the tuition paid to attend.
These gifts are gathered and distributed each year to reduce the cost of tuition for GPLHS students with financial need.
Bridging the Gap
Gifts given to Bridging the Gap will help us reduce our debt by enabling us to make additional principal payments on our loan. These gifts and payments will not only reduce our debt, but also reduce the total amount we pay over time and the length of time we make payments.
Wish List - Special Projects
Throughout the year unique projects and opportunities arise that were not included in the yearly budget. Gifts designated to the wish list allow for the funding of these unexpected, yet worthy projects.
An endowment fund is a savings plan that allows financial blessings to grow through investment. Only the earnings on the investment, not the principal itself, are used to support the ministry at GPLHS.
Active Ministry - gifts given to this endowment fund will be invested. Each year a disbursement is made from the earnings of this fund to meet the Annual Support Goal for the school year.
Student Assistance - gifts given to this endowment fund will be invested. Each year a disbursement is made from the earnings of this fund to add to the money available to make GPL an affordable option for families with financial need.
