For Future Generations

Covenant is a culture of giving, and we invite you into it.

We’re boldly and joyfully asking everyone in the Covenant community - parents, grandparents, alumni, friends, and more - to donate to the 1 Fund in any dollar amount. The 1 Fund is a one-year, $1 million initiative that will accomplish three goals:

  • $200,000 to complete the three-year, $3.5 million Cornerstone Campaign, which has funded faculty salary increases, academic enhancements such as STEAM Labs, a beautification of our courtyard which will be named Sanker Commons, and improvements to our robust Athletic Department, including six new tennis courts.

  • $400,000 to our annual Covenant Fund, to help provide our students and teachers the resources they require to flourish – everything from poetry books, to paintbrushes, to playgrounds, to professional development.

  • $400,000 to strengthen our scholarship and financial aid offerings, and to open our doors as widely as possible to all who desire this Christian Liberal Arts and Sciences education. 

Covenant is stable and thriving, with burgeoning enrollments and a community of extremely generous donors. Please join us by making a gift online, or mailing a check to the address below. You will be directly enabling us to execute this critical mission of teaching the next generation to live well.
