Fundraising Policy

CCA HYBRID PROGRAM FUNDRAISING POLICY

Classical Christian Academy strives to provide a world-class education for our students while keeping tuition at a level that makes CCA a viable option for most families. We rely on donations and successful fundraising to subsidize our General Operating Budget and help defray the costs associated with retaining qualified teachers, securing the use of our outstanding facilities, and providing unique experiences for our students through our expansive electives, athletics, and arts programs.  The most successful means of raising these donations is through our Annual Auction. To ensure all families participate in this important fundraiser, we offer families the opportunity to choose how they fulfill their fair share of the auction revenue. Families can Opt Out and pay a Fundraising Fee or can Opt In and raise their fair share by soliciting donations.

Opt In: The total amount of the proceeds received from the items you collect or donate must meet or exceed $350. If you choose the Opt In option, the $500 Fundraising Fee will not be added to your tuition payment. If proceeds for the items you collect fall below $350, you will be billed for the remaining amount of the $350. In addition, if you Opt In and then fail to participate and/or follow up on the leads you were given, your family will also be assessed the $500 fundraising fee AND will be fined $150 for failure to fully participate. Items turned in after the deadline will not count towards the $350 and may result in being fined $150 for failure to fully participate. Any balance or fees will be billed with your tuition and are due within 30 days of the invoice date, and subject to our delinquent accounts policy.

Opt Out: The Fundraising Fee is $500 per family. If you choose this option, the fee will be automatically added to your Financial Agreement. The amount will be paid with the same plan you choose to pay tuition. For instance: If you choose to pay your tuition in one payment, then the Fundraising Fee will also be paid in one payment. If you choose to pay your tuition in monthly payments, then the Fundraising Fee will be divided equally among the months you are paying your tuition. The due dates are the same.

In addition, all items collected and donated will be evaluated by the Auction Coordinator and Committee to determine their appropriateness for CCA’s auction and their value.  After evaluation, some items and donated items may not be found to be appropriate for the CCA Auction and, therefore, not accepted for the auction.

Late Enrollment:  Any family enrolling between October 15th and the last day of the first semester, will be assessed the $350 fundraising fee, with no requirements to procure items for the auction.  Families enrolling after the first semester will be assessed $175 fundraising fee.

Important Details:

You choose to Opt In or Opt Out at the time you sign your financial agreement. Any changes to this portion of your Financial Agreement must be made by August 30th.  After this date, changes must be approved by the Board.  New Families may change their choice up to October 15th after this date, changes must be approved by the Board.

Parents are responsible for the full fundraising fee associated with their choice of Opt-In or Opt-Out and any balances or fines therein, even if the student(s) is withdrawn, suspended, or dismissed either voluntarily or involuntarily, at any time in the school year.”

The fundraising fee and opt in proceeds are different amounts for two reasons:

1) Historically, Opt In families raise more than the minimum amount. A higher Fundraising Fee helps balance out the responsibility across all families, making the amount reflect each family’s fair share.

2) We need donated items in the auction to make it successful. We wanted to give an incentive to families who choose to invest their time and energy requesting and collecting auction items.

You can do both. Many families choose to Opt Out and pay the Fundraising Fee, then continue to call upon businesses to help collect donations without having to worry about meeting a minimum amount.

The Auction Committee puts together a list of businesses that you can contact to request donations. We can provide you with a complete packet with auction information.
