WAYS TO GIVE BACK
A MESSAGE FROM HEAD OF SCHOOL, MR. TIMOTHY DUFF
It has been my privilege to serve at Pioneer Valley Christian Academy for 40 years and witness God’s faithfulness to our school. I appreciate the many people who have sacrificially given over the years and their willingness to support the work of the Lord. It is an encouragement to me and to all of the staff and faculty.
Many of you might not be aware that the cost of educating students at PVCA is much greater than what the tuition covers. Like any quality academic institution, PVCA relies on support above and beyond tuition in the form of donors who fill the gap between tuition and operating expenses.
WOULD YOU PRAYERFULLY CONSIDER GIVING TO PIONEER VALLEY CHRISTIAN ACADEMY
This year we did not reach our enrollment goal of 361 students, bringing our annual fund need to $348,000. Therefore, your partnership with our school is critically important. We truly need your help now. I would ask that you prayerfully consider what the Lord would have you give. Your donation of any amount demonstrates your support of PVCA and Christian education. Remember that all contributions are tax-deductible.
