At Clapham, we are blessed to see how our school has grown since our first year both in size and commitment to our mission and values. God has brought new students into our classrooms while our faculty, staff, administration and parents have continued to commit themselves to providing a feast of living ideas for our students. As we continue to pray and begin implementing a strategic vision for growth, there are some ways to support Clapham and its commitment to a life of service and joyful discovery.
Our fundraising this year will offset our startup costs, bridge the funding gap created by not yet having all classes at full enrollment, and provide scholarships for students. We invite Clapham families and friends to partner with us in reaching this goal by participating in several ways.
First, the online auction. This is a great opportunity for family and friends who will not be able to join us at the live event on October 14th to participate. Bid now through October 11th.
Second, join us for the live event on October 14th. It is a time for the Clapham community to create shared memories whether bidding on some of the items in the silent and live auctions, listening to our distinguished guest speaker John Seel, or fellowshipping with other families and friends. Tickets for the event cost $30.
Third, a new and unique way to participate is to purchase raffle tickets. This year for the raffle prize, we are excited to offer a week-long stay in a luxury home at the Greenbrier Resort in White Sulfur Springs, WV-- a value of over $7000. Tickets for the raffle may be purchased for $50, or for an additional $20 with each ticket purchased for the event.
Finally, please join us in prayer as we strive to follow God’s will for our school, as well as for the students who will meet Him within our walls. We wait expectantly to see how God will provide for our needs as we continue to grow.
