Ways to Support OCS

From memorial gifts to volunteering, there are numerous opportunities to support the Oakland Christian Mission.

Securities/Stock Gifts:

Oakland Christian School accepts gifts of stocks, bonds, mutual funds, investments, and real estate. Gifts may be designated to fund a specific intiative or be added to the school’s general fund.

Memorial Gifts:

A memorial gift is a special and unique way to honor the life of a family member or friend, while also supporting Oakland Christian School. Memorial gifts can be designated to fund a specific intiative or be added to the school’s general fund.  Families may also choose to establish a scholarship fund or endowment in the name of the individual being honored.

In-Kind Gifts:

A gift-in-kind is a non-cash contribution that adds value to the Oakland Christian educational experience or may be sold for profit.  When received, any gift-in-kind becomes the property of Oakland Christian School.  In-Kind gifts can be designated to fund a specific initiative or be added to the school’s general fund.  Examples of recent gifts-in-kind include book collections, medical equipment, historical items, general equipment, and artwork.

Monthly Gifts:

The convenience and speed of making an automatic monthly gift is becoming increasingly popular.  You may safely and securely make monthly gifts to Oakland Christian  using a credit card or Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) from your primary checking or savings account.  To begin  a monthly giving plan, please signup online or download and complete the Monthly Giving Form and mail it to Susan Brock, Sr. Development Director. 

Volunteers:

Oakland Christian School offers a variety of special events throughout the year for students, alumni, and donors. These include art exhibits, concerts, lectures, community gatherings, Homecoming, alumni dinners, trips, board meetings, research panels, and other activities.  There are many opportunities for you to utilize your talents and help OCS at the same time. If you are interested in volunteering, please email volunteer@oaklandchristian.com or call 248-373-2700.

The Prayer Corner:

The Prayer Corner is a prayer network specifically focusing on the numerous school ministries and individuals associated with Oakland Christian School.  Many positive initiatives have been launched recently at OCS,  and we believe prayer support has been a major factor in the growth and development of the institution.  A group of OCS parents committed to faithful and consistent prayer meets each Friday of the school at 8:00am.  If you would like to join this group, please email info@oaklandchristian.com and express your interest.

For more information regarding support of Oakland Christian School, please contact Susan Brock, Senior Director of Development at sbrock@oaklandchristian.com or 248-373-2700.

 

 

Hear From Our Parents, Teachers, and Alumni

We believe a Christian education lays the foundation and prepares our children to make a difference for Christ, but we were unable to afford the cost of full tuition.  Thanks to the generous donations to the tuition assistance program, our children are thriving at OCS.

I am blown away by the grace given me by the OCS community. The Administration, Faculty, and all the OCS families have always been so generous to me and my family.  To all the patrons of the ACCESS tuition assistance fund - THANK YOU!
