Give To Unity

Throughout the years, countless numbers of individuals, families, and businesses have provided support that has allowed Unity to continue offering Christian education to the future generations. Because of this support, Unity not only provides an education that is academically-excellent, but also offers various venues and opportunities where students can hone and develop their leadership skills for Christ and use their God-given talents to serve Him.

The generosity of the Unity Christian community is truly a blessing, and for this we thank God. He is using His people in proclaiming the gospel to the world through the Christian education of our children.

Expanding Our Mission

The Education Foundation

Established in the early 1970s, the Unity Christian Education Foundation is a long-term investment plan that ensures financial assistance to the yearly budget, and thus creates financial stability for our school. Funds for the Foundation go directly to support the school’s future and are raised through a variety of events, as well as through gifts from estate giving, general gifts, and other forms of giving. The Education Foundation provides relief to the annual budget by assisting all families in reducing the overall tuition cost.

The Celebration Banquet

The Celebration Banquet—usually hosted annually by the Board of Trustees as a way of saying “Thanks” to all our faithful supporters. As a fundraiser, the Banquet supports the Education Foundation and the Tuition Assistance Fund, and guests are encouraged to consider a pledge or gift for these important needs.

Celebration Banquet 2024

This year we will be joined by speaker, Jolene DeHeer. Jolene has been the keynote speaker for such events as the Annual Christian Reformed World Missionaries Conference in Africa, Christian Schools International, Kid’s Hope, and at various conventions and conferences for leaders and students across the U.S. and Canada, and speaks at meetings, banquets, retreats, small groups, and graduation addresses from coast to coast. Her dynamic life’s stories and practical insights will move you from side-holding laughter to heart-felt tears. She will motivate you, inspire you, encourage you, entertain you — she will touch your life and heart forever.
