"We will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, his power, and the wonders he has the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born..."
Psalm 78: 4, 6
The Jenison Christian School Education Foundation was established in 1982, by a group of men who strongly believed in providing stable financial support to Jenison Christian School. Jenison Christian School continues to provide quality, Christ-centered education to generations of children. The JCSEF is led by a group of Jenison Christian School supporters, including current and former parents, and staff. The group, collectively called the Board of Trustees, meets quarterly to review financial investment statements, and collaborate on community outreach and fundraising events.
The Foundation’s annual gift to JCS is 5% of the JCSEF year-end fund balance. JCS has been gifted a generous amount of over $50,000 annually in each of the last 5 years. The JCSEF is critical to provide financial stability for the school, keeping tuition costs lower for every family at JCS.

By supporting the JCS Education Foundation you join a group of individuals who care for the students of today and the generations of tomorrow.
