Ways to Help
The Office of Advancement works closely with families, friends, alumni, corporations and foundations to reach each year’s specific Annual Fund goals. We do this with confidence knowing that Foothill Christian School provides a superior, Christ-centered education that has earned a respected place among leading private, Christian schools. Along with full accreditation by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), the school has received “EXEMPLARY” status by ACSI. Regionally, our preschool has been voted “BEST PRESCHOOL” in the San Gabriel Valley by the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, Pasadena Star-News and Whittier Daily News every year since 2012!
With today’s economic challenges, the need for private support is crucial to sustain the level of excellence we celebrate and fervently maintain. Please join us in supporting the legacy of excellence that began over 50 years ago!

- United Way Campaign
Foothill Christian School is an official charity of United Way! Families can donate through their employer payroll program and designate our school as a recipient of the funds. (We are listed under our corporate name Foothill Christian Center, but the funds come to the school.)
Check with your employer about payroll deduction gifts to FCS through United Way. Those donations can be specifically designated to FCS (account #22570).
Extend your donation by asking a co-worker to join you! Many parents who give through United Way are encouraging their co-workers to designate some or all of their United Way contributions to FCS too!Contact us for more information about:
