WELCOME TO OUR SUPPORT PAGE
We are excited to share our vision of Christian, classical education with you. St. Timothy’s is a unique school in Ottawa, and one of only a few of its kind in Canada. We have great plans for the future of our school, as we continue to provide more resources for our students, expand our school, and educate the wider Christian community on the benefits of a classical curriculum.
WHY OUR SCHOOL NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT
We believe we have something special to share with the Christian community and with our secular culture, as we seek to cultivate the minds, hearts, bodies and souls of our students. We feel called to offer a Christian education in an interdenominational setting; our students and families have been blessed by this diversity in faith expressions, as we all worship our Lord Jesus Christ. As a result we receive no institutional support from a specific church or denomination, in addition to the fact that we do not receive any government funding.
We operate on a tight budget and need additional funds for both our annual operational costs, which are currently covered almost entirely by tuition, and for larger funding needs such as finding a permanent home.
WHERE YOUR MONEY WILL GO IF YOU DONATE
Bursaries for low-income families
We are proud to support families in our school who cannot afford the normal costs of a private or independent education. Our desire is to never turn away a family who truly supports our mission, simply for financial reasons. We are unique in our generosity: our tuition assistance currently stands at almost 20% of our operational budget.
Helping with our operational costs
We are good stewards with the resources God has given us, and the second-hand furniture we are always looking for, not to mention the hundreds of hours that our parent volunteers put in every year, are a testament to this! However we still need extra funds to ensure our staff are paid a fair wage in line with that of other Christian school teachers, to purchase educational material, and to cover rent and utilities from year to year.
We have been blessed with wonderful rental space in churches since our inception in 2004; however our dream is to move into our “home” building one day. We are, in fact, currently bursting at the seams and do not want to turn away any students. This will require some major investments from Christians in the community who are captured by our vision.
HOW YOU CAN SUPPORT US
We have recently partnered with the Christian School Foundation (CSF), which we believe offers the most effective and transparent way for donors to ensure their gifts have lasting value and their legacy has lasting impact. The CSF pulls together experts in financial planning, tax law and estate planning to offer a range of services to donors so that gifts to our school are received and managed in a stewardly and God-honouring way.
By clicking on the donate button below, you will immediately be linked to the CSF site, where you can donate in a secure manner. You can also choose where you would like your funds to go, and whether you would like to give a one-time or monthly donation. The CSF also allows for unique donations to be made to help St. Timothy’s, for example appreciated securities, physical property, and in kind donations.
If you would prefer to send a cheque rather than donate online, you can mail it to our school address: 1061 Pinecrest Road, Ottawa, ON, K2B 6B7.
St. Timothy's Classical Academy is a registered charity. Every dollar you donate to the school is tax deductible.
Restricted Gift Policy: Spending of funds is confined to St. Timothy's Classical Academy Society board approved programs and projects. Each contribution directed toward an approved program or project will be used as restricted with the understanding that when the need for such a program or project has been met, or cannot be completed for any reason as determined by the board, the remaining restricted contributions will be used where most needed.
